England's next game against Croatia will take place behind closed doors

England's next game against Croatia will take place behind closed doors

Mario Mandzukic then scored in extra time to put Croatia ahead. Although he scarcely shirked mentioning his bemusement with English "expertise" when it came to football, any slight may be forgiven on what was the biggest of nights for Croatian football.

A peak audience of 1.05 million in Wales tuned in for England's World Cup semi-final defeat against Croatia.

"I feel represented by these players, they have given everything and have given the country a great image, we lacked a bit tonight but Croatia are a great team", says Dale from Nottingham.

Both teams went into full-time 1-1. "I would play a final without a leg if necessary".

Vrsaljko also hit out at the media, with England favourites going into the last-four clash.

Writing Croatia's name in the history books: "We'll be in the history books for being, along with Uruguay, the smallest country to play in the final".

"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.

"This is either a moment of rare hope and we sink back, or we build in the way that Germany did in 2010", he said.

"The fans are excited to watch us again and that is how we have to keep it".

The fact remains, though, that on Sunday they will play the biggest match of their lives against a France side bursting with youth and vigour that has had a day more rest and played the equivalent of a match fewer over the knockout rounds.

Harry Kane looks set to claim the Golden Boot as the World Cup´s leading scorer, but the Tottenham star rarely looked like adding to his six goals against Croatia.

And Mourinho believes Southgate should be given the chance to lead England into the future.

The Three Lions were kicked out of the tournament last night after a heart-breaking defeat during extra time against Croatia.

Prince William, the president of the Football Association, said England could be proud of Southgate's team.

How do they make sure that this is not a beguiling high, especially when aspirations just grew with England's passage to only their third tournament semi-final since 1966?
