England hailed as heroes after World Cup heartache

ENGLAND FAN

England crashed out of the World Cup after a 2-1 defeat to Croatia after extra time. In extra time Danny Rose came on for Ashley Young and Eric Dier swapped with Jordan Henderson.

Bitter disappointment was mixed with pride for England fans who witnessed the Three Lions' lose their first World Cup semi-final in decades.

"It was very tough but we showed our character just like in the first two knockout matches", said Perisic. "We worked hard defensively, we needed to take advantage a bit more in the counter-attacks but congratulations to my players and my staff", he said, according to Reuters.

On that occasion, the Uruguayans defeated a heavily-fancied Brazil team 2-1 at the Maracana in the final second-stage group game, which effectively served as the tournament's final. The Croats never give in, prevailing in a shootout against Denmark, again on penalties against Russian Federation - after being stung by a late equalizer - and then recovering from conceding early against England.

Our physical performance coach has tried to keep refreshing the warm-ups for the players and keep them stimulated. I am delighted that good teamwork has meant we have been able to pull out all the stops alongside Government and other agencies to arrange this big screening.

After watching their team stumble at major tournaments for decades, often falling to much smaller nations, England supporters had begun to think that 2018 might be a different story.

Alli has not quite hit full gear in the World Cup campaign, but has been vital to the England side nonetheless and did score a header in the quarter finals against Sweden.

"For Croatian football and Croatia as a country this is history being written", said the 51-year-old Dalic. Wednesday evening is a huge opportunity for our boys to do what many of us thought was impossible before the World Cup began and reach the Final.

Even leaving aside the fact they're into the final, the French have trailed in just one match so far.
