Fans thank England for 'making nation dream'

England Get Trolled Online After 'It's Coming Home' Mantra Becomes Obsolete

At least, England looked like they were poised to get back to their first World Cup final in 50 years and give the players a chance to bring the trophy home to one of the most soccer-crazed countries on the planet. In the previous four World Cups: Croatia failed to qualify in 2010 and was ousted in the group stage the other three occasions. You don't get that reaction if you haven't played as well as you have.

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

"The dressing-room is a really hard place at the moment".

"It's massive that we had a good tournament and restored pride in the nation". The match kicks off at 7pm BST, by which time the country's roads are likely to be more or less deserted.

England were comfortable winners over Sweden in their last game, winning 2-0 thanks to goals from Harry Maguire and Dele Alli.

"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.

Her 24-year-old boyfriend played well but could do little about his Croatia's extra-time victor, which was scored by striker Mario Mandzukic.

England secured their biggest major tournament win in Russian Federation, as well as winning their first World Cup penalty shootout and first knockout match since 2006 en route to just their third ever semi-final in this competition.

The nation has embraced the single by The Lightning Seeds, originally released for Euro 96, and turned it into a unifying way of celebrating their team's first appearance at a World Cup semi-final since 1990.

When Croatia scored the goal that took them into the World Cup final on Wednesday, an AFP photographer unwittingly became part of the celebrations as he was buried under a pile of joyous players.

Croatia, who have reached the final for the first time in their history, will play France on Sunday. But there's something I want to say.

"It's a young team, the majority of the players will play in the next World Cup with more experience at club level", the Portuguese boss told RT.

The country of around 4 million people came to a standstill as Croatians watched the game on screens in squares and cafes.
