The bizarre things we’ll miss after England’s World Cup exit

The bizarre things we’ll miss after England’s World Cup exit The bizarre things we’ll miss after England’s World Cup exit

Moscow, Jul 12 Ivan Perisic said his equaliser that helped Croatia come from behind to beat England 2-1 after extra time and reach the World Cup final was a goal that "he could only dream of" as a child.

"A kick in the Balkans": The Metro references Croatia as England's tormentors with a pun but insists Southgate's men are "still our heroes".

"We know there is more to come from this @england team".

"Coach Zlatko Dalić has done a wonderful job, all the players are united and they're playing well".

Croatia also was dealing with serious injury concerns entering a World Cup semifinal against a fully fit England side.

"We're gutted. It hurts, it hurts a lot", Kane said after the match at the Luzhniki Stadium.

The Croatia defender Domagoj Vida added to the long-standing tensions with a video that was released of him shouting "Glory to Ukraine", after his team had put Russian Federation out on penalties in the quarter-final.

The only finalists not to have faced a knockout match against a top 15 side in the past 7 World Cups are Italy, who took on home nation Germany, then ranked 19th by Federation Internationale de Football Association, in the 2006 semi-final.

The Juventus forward scored the victor in the 109th minute to send the tiny country of just 4 million people to their first-ever World Cup final, and couldn't say enough about the historic achievement after the match.

In fact, when Ante Cacic was sacked in October, Dalic was appointed just two days before the final group game in Ukraine, which Croatia won to get a play-off spot.

"A couple of weeks ago, I would have taken this result", said another England fan.

We'll have to see how the teams look when starting lineups post, but for a second time this cup, Belgium is the favorite against England and should continue to be, unless Belgium rests its stars and England players its big boys. But when you've got to this point and played as well as we have. you want to take these opportunities in life.

Pockets within the Hyde Park crowd continued to clap and chant but the disappointment was obvious with some people with hands on their heads, tears in their eyes and too upset to talk. No-one believed before the World Cup that we could go this far, but we believed.

He said: "I think it's our year this time".
