England are out of the Fifa World Cup after Croatia fought back from 1-0 down to win 2-1 in extra time in a dramatic semifinal in Moscow.

Croatia now have the chance to win their first World Cup final when they face France in the final at 3am on Monday, NZ Time. "We probably needed that second goal [in the first half]". I thought they played well and made it hard for us. "We worked so hard, the fans were fantastic, it was a tough game, a 50-50 game, when we look back we will think there's stuff we could have done better".

"But we left everything out there".

Southgate said the players were deeply disappointed, but that the young team could achieve great things in the years to come, with the European Championship just two years away. "We have to be proud". Croatia have hardened warriors whose understanding of big matches at times came to the fore.
