England lose 2-1 to Croatia in the World Cup semi-final



The Croatian capital Zagreb turned red on Wednesday night as jubilant fans celebrated their team's historic win over England in the World Cup 2018 semifinal in Moscow.

New Zealand may still be winners at the World Cup after all.

Barclaycard presents British Summer Time - which has already played host to headliners in Roger Waters and The Cure - announced they would be screening the match to 30,000 lucky England fans who registered for a ballot.

"I just believe we can come back another time, and I hope before I die I see England win the World Cup", added Ogunde. 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.

This is an England team which has inspired a level of belief and excitement among the country's population which hasn't been seen in more than 20 years, and it has not gone unnoticed among the squad.

"I was in Nice to watch us lose to Iceland, I was in Kiev to lose against Italy".

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

As some fans sunk to their knees in disappointment, 24-year-old sports coach Jaihon Sedgley said: "I am absolutely gutted but we go again in two years at the next tournament".

"Every time we wear the shirt of our national team, we want to play with pride and play well and win".

As if all of that were not enough, France have also came through the competition with no serious injuries, while Mandzukic ended the semi-final with a knock.

Before the England team left for Russian Federation , the Duke of Cambridge spent time with the squad and wished them well. Last week's number one Scorpion by rapper Drake slips to three behind the soundtrack of The Greatest Showman.

If you think Croatia has one more extra-time match in them, those +240 odds must look pretty appealing.

No team has ever made it to the World Cup final after going to extra-time in all three prior knockout rounds - England twice won in extra-time in 1990 before losing on penalties to West Germany in the semi-finals.

"Semi-finals, they've done what they had to do, they took us to the semi-finals".

They will return to their club sides after the third place play-off on Saturday with Belgium and will surely be mainstays in this England side for the foreseeable future.
