Croatia's Luka Modric criticises England's media as disrespectful

The 1-1 score held as the match went into extra time.

"We're gutted", said Harry Kane, still on course to finish as the tournament's top goalscorer with six strikes in Russian Federation.

"Of course it´s going to be a really hard task over the next 24 hours to get everyone mentally back to where we want them for a game like that".

Kane is also three goals ahead of France pair Kylian Mbappé and Antoine Griezmann, who will both feature in the World Cup final against Croatia, on Sunday. There's nothing better, when people are writing you off and saying "you're not fit to wear the shirt", slagging people off, it's kind of saying: 'Well, there you go - have that back at you.' But we do it for ourselves as well. "They have to use this experience for benefit and I know that what´s happened over the last few weeks will make them a stronger team".

However, they have taken a gruelling route to the final and the French will be warm favourites.

England's Kieran Trippier (not pictured) scores their first goal from a free kick past Croatia's Danijel Subasic. There will be legitimate questions about how much they have left in the tank.

MOSCOW, RUSSIA - JULY 11: Jamie Vardy, Dele Alli of England following the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia Semi Final match between England and Croatia at Luzhniki Stadium on July 11, 2018 in Moscow, Russia.

As well as scoring, Perisic also hit the post for the second straight game and set up Mandzukic's victor, heading a poor clearance toward the Juventus striker to score. And England simply trailed off in the second half when it had just 30 per cent of the ball while Croatia cranked up their game.

Coming out on top against Kane, and successfully shutting out or limiting the damage from the Tottenham star and England, to send Croatia to their first ever World Cup final would no doubt earn Lovren lots of respect and accolades, and the Liverpool man will surely be looking forward to grabbing a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity with both hands.

Vrsaljko cleared a John Stones header off the line midway through the first extra period.

"I was lying in bed finding the strength to play and it was worth it".

Croatia's previous best showing at the World Cup was a semifinal final loss against France in 1998.

But it was Croatia who struck in the 109th minute when Perisic won a header on the edge of the box and the ball dropped for Mandzukic whose firm low finish beat Pickford.
