England knocked out after loss to Croatia

We can knockout games and we can get to semifinals but the next step is to go one further. "Now I want to go and see what's going on in Russian Federation", said one fan, Michael Roberts, 27, as he waited for his flight.

England have set a record for the most set-piece goals at a World Cup since 1966. But when Mario Mandzukic caught Stones sleeping with just over 10 minutes to play, burying a left-footed shot under Pickford, England's World Cup dream was over.

"People are crying, they are happy in our country - this is something historical for us", Lovren said.

Celebrities, former players and royalty have been praising the England team for their "beautiful World Cup run", calling them "heroes" who have made the country proud.

After winning a few yards outside the box just five minutes into the match, Kieran Trippier sent home a lovely free kick to give England an early 1-0 lead as the Three Lions fight for the chance to play France in the final.

'I took Liverpool to the final of the Champions League and now with my national team we are in the final.

England had never overachieved, but this team have in reaching the semifinal. And the last time it played in the final four was 20 years ago, in 1998. The UEFA European Championship in 2016 was an abject humiliation - England crashed out after losing 2-1 against Iceland. An energetic first 30 minutes reaped only a single goal from Kane. The team needed Kane to use his head in stoppage time to get the victor.

However, the biggest concern looking ahead to Sunday's game is bound to be fatigue, with Croatia having also required extra time and penalties to come through ties against Denmark and hosts Russian Federation in the past two weeks.

Against Croatia, when the late chance came again, Kane could only guide it wide. I'm sure there was stuff we could have done better, but we worked as hard as we could.

But the third-place match can hold some surprises: The record for the fastest goal in World Cup history still belongs to Turkey's Hakan Sukur, who buried one 11 seconds into the third-place game against South Korea in 2002.

Look at the other teams they'll be up against. "I can't ask more of him as a captain or as a man over the last three weeks".
