See how fans celebrated Croatia's World Cup semifinal win in Zagreb

England Kane

England's midfielder Dele Alli (L) and England's midfielder Jesse Lingard (R) react after a missed chance during the Russian Federation 2018 World Cup semi-final football match between Croatia and England at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow on July 11, 2018.

"But equally we want to be a team that's hitting quarter-finals, semi-finals, finals - that was what we've aimed to do in the long term and we've proved that is possible".

Graeme Souness has singled out midfield duo Dele Alli and Jesse Lingard as an example of why England are returning from the World Cup empty-handed.

England face Belgium in the third/fourth play-off on Saturday, before the World Cup final between France and Croatia on Sunday.

"Let me explain. They played the worst team in the tournament in Panama".

And because BA were clearly really going for it, customers were also given boarding passes with customer name "Football" and destination "Home", which we'd imagine might fetch a bob or two on eBay should England come out triumphant. It said: "The more I see, the more important it is that when 'attacking this tournament" we tell our own story.

England had only ever played there once (a 2-1 defeat to Russian Federation back in 2007), and it seems like the curse / losing streak is destined to continue for the time being. Here are our top five moments from the 2018 World Cup!

History in Turin 28 years ago had its echo in Moscow on Wednesday (NZT Thursday).

Back then, a powerful West Germany team edged England in a penalty shootout after a 1-1 draw, and lifted the trophy days later.

England captain Harry Kane thanks fans after losing the World Cup semifinal to Croatia.

England learned that in its opening game against Tunisia. And I think we need to take full credit for that because we've changed that. He said the players were "absolutely gutted" but the fans' reaction in the stadium after the game showed what they had achieved.

However, fans said the side had "finished further than anyone dreamed".
