Perisic hails 'dream' goal as Croatia reach final

Jubilant Croatian fans honked their vehicle horns and let off fireworks while England fans sobbed and looked to the future with confidence after Mario Mandzukic's extra-time victor took Croatia to its first World Cup final.

Despite Kieran Trippier giving England an early lead, Croatia clawed their way back into the game and edged past Southgate's side after extra time.

Most England fans were gracious in defeat, with one fan saying "Croatia was the better team" on the way out.

Eric Amsalem, a 48-year-old Croatian fan with his face painted in the colours of the national flag said: "It's a small country". Tonight in the end we weren't quite there but the team will be stronger for that'.

England play Croatia Wednesday night at 7pm.

"It was tough first-half".

He said: "I just feel so disappointed".

However, Kane has not added to his tally since that Colombia match during the round of 16 and Neville is adamant England's star striker picked up an injury during the clash against the South Americans and has been playing hurt ever since.

"It's felt like a good holiday we've been on - and we're enjoying every moment of it", said the Manchester United left wing-back.

"This acquisition would be a fantastic addition to our holdings and would come at an exciting time for us while we build the London Collection as we plan the New Museum in West Smithfield".

That's proved to be the case, although they have relied on large part on grit and determination to see them through the knockout stages, beating Denmark and Russian Federation on penalties before seeing off England in extra time.

"Why didn't you ask me about when I played well?"

The World Cup in Russian Federation has thrown up some stunning twists, turns and shocks, so it's perhaps fitting that its final game will feature the smallest nation to appear in the last stage of the tournament since 1950.

"We have the chance to do something better, and hopefully we can do it on Sunday".

In a sea of England jerseys, there was one lone Croatia shirt in the packed pub - two Croatian fans in total, who embraced in a hug after their momentous win.
