Croatia's previous best showing at the World Cup was a semifinal final loss against France in 1998. We are in the final and that is the biggest success in Croatia history.

Sam, a local from Southampton said it best: "We are playing very well in this World Cup and although it is going to be hard I am confident that we will reach the final, I have been dreaming all my life with this moment". "God willing, we will be world champions".

But on the night, Croatia's extra midfield quality deservedly took them to a first-ever World Cup final.

It was their 12th goal of the tournament and ninth from a set-piece, but they should have added more from open play as they revelled in the space they were being given and looked completely in command.

Kane had a chance to double the lead in the 30th minute when Subasic made a sliding save on his short-range shot and Kane's follow-up effort from the end line hit the post and bounced off the keeper and up as the flag went up.

"We proved everything differently that people were talking", Modric told ITV. But Croatia clawed their way back into the match and equalized in the 68th minute when Ivan Perisic beat Kyle Walker to Sime Vrsaljko's cross and finished past Jordan Pickford.

Antonio Conte's managerial stint with Chelsea comes to an end
Conte has managed Chelsea for the last two seasons, winning a Premier League title and an FA Cup in his time there. Conte took pre-season training this week but ex-Napoli manager Maurizio Sarri expected to take over.

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.

Trippier gave England a dream start, curling in a free-kick from 25 yards past the despairing dive of Danijel Subasic after Dele Alli was brought down in a central position.

"This is a miracle".

"Tonight we weren´t quite there but we will learn from that".

MOSCOW, RUSSIA - JULY 11: Jamie Vardy, Dele Alli of England following the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia Semi Final match between England and Croatia at Luzhniki Stadium on July 11, 2018 in Moscow, Russia. "It's about creating an environment to be best we can be, a professional culture". And a respect for manager Gareth Southgate that, according to at least one newspaper, knows no bounds. When you have spells, you have to make them count. First of all I'm so proud of this team and staff for giving everything we could over a long period of time together.

"We were good. We controlled the game, but there's always tension with us, we always concede this early goal and have shocks", Vrsaljko said.
