England hailed as heroes after World Cup heartache

Gareth Southgate lookalike in waistcoat

Southgate's England team lost 2-1 to Croatia to set-up a third/fourth play-off with Belgium on Saturday. The ball rebounded nearly out of play, then sat up for Kane to take another shot from less than two yards at a tight angle.

Infogol's Analyst thinks England will score again from a set-piece against Croatia, but who are they backing to score in Wednesday's semi-final.?

Fans stationed behind the goal roared as a young boy wearing the Peresic name ran a scintillating line from nearly halfway to score in a packed away net.

Beverley D'Cruz, sales and marketing director at Pizza Hut Delivery UK said: "Along with the nation, we are incredibly proud of the England football team and how they have delivered for us so far". Croatia were better than us, and they deserved to go through.

Croatia is playing in its fifth World Cup.

"We had hoped [for this] and we believed in our team, but the feeling when we finally entered the finals can not be compared to anything", said Croatia fan Ivan Kecerin.

I was sitting in the middle of our supporters and it was great to see, despite the disappointment of the result.

England reached the semi-finals of the World Cup for the first time since 1990 under Southgate before losing in extra-time to Croatia.

Wojnarowski also reported that Rockets small forward Luc Mbah A Moute has agreed to a one-year deal with the Clippers . Last season, his first with the OKC Thunder, Anthony averaged 16.2 points and 5.8 rebounds per game.

"I know everything about Croatia, I have lived the country intensely in all my life, since its history on all the sports of the country".

MOSCOW-England defender Kyle Walker is finding meaning in the game no one wants to play.

England's valiant effort also drew praise from Britain's Prince William, who said the team's performance gave fans "something to believe in". They have done enough, all of them, to earn our respect.

Since the breakup started, the country now known as Serbia has qualified for four World Cups, including this year's tournament.

A significant amount of the pre-tournament discussion was centred around potential trouble between England and Russian Federation fans, after the clashes between the two sets of supporters in Marseille in 2016.

There is no problem about quality in the squad, though in an earlier column I said some of the squad would need to be sharper, aggressive.

"Three weeks ago, there wasn't even a connection with the England football team".
