"Don't Look Back In Anger" - England fans' emotional praise following Croatia defeat

England's match in Moscow on Wednesday night will be for a place in the World Cup final against France on Sunday at the Luzhniki Stadium, but Southgate believes his side will not face an easy route to get there.

The Three Lions suffered an extra-time 2-1 defeat at the hands of Croatia in Moscow, after a roller-coaster game which saw England take an early lead through Kieran Trippier, only for a second-half equaliser from Ivan Perisic to take the game to extra time and set up Mario Mandzukic's late victor. "We got further than anyone else could thought we would have".

"There is too much about me".

"I would say we have good mothers and fathers".

"Tonight though, it's a lot more hard for us to take having come so close to what was nearly unimaginable at the start".

"But we left everything out there".

England's keeper Jordan Pickford made a brilliant save in stoppage time of the first half of extra time, appearing to injure Croatian striker Mario Mandzukic in the process.

"We have to be proud of what we´ve achieved".

Talk about the potential rule loophole started after Portugal's Jose Fonte strangely chose to stay in the field of play while the rest of his team celebrated Cristiano Ronaldo's equaliser against Spain off the pitch.

Kane is every defender's nightmare and, with six goals to his name at the tournament, the Englishman is raring to go as the Three Lions look to win their second ever World Cup.

Croatia did their confidence little good in the 22nd minute when Danijel Subasic's poor kick went straight to Raheem Sterling, who found Harry Kane, but he ultimately shot wide after straying offside. "Everybody has come. It's the best feeling in a long time".

England arrived at this World Cup with the least experienced squad in terms of caps, but Southgate said the agony of losing was just as strong despite surpassing limited expectations.

One tweet read: "So thinking you could win and being confident is a lack of respect?"

'At the moment we all feel the pain of defeat. "We dominated the game physically, mentally, in all aspects". "It's unlucky we couldn't bring it home for them, but hopefully there's time in the future".

"But when you´ve got to this point, and we´ve played as well as we have, you want to take those opportunities in life".
