Croatian players' kids delight World Cup fans with post-win scratch match

Ricky Gervais dogs and 8 weird and wonderful messages of support for England

Mandzukic's goal in Moscow's Luzhniki stadium on Wednesday sealed Croatia's spot in the final, surprising even some fans with the result, while dashing England fans' once improbable dreams of a first World Cup final in more than 50 years.

"It was an experience for us and one we wanted to win", said Pickford, who allowed only six goals across all of England's six matches.

Several positions remain problematic for the Reds and if they are serious about toppling current champions Manchester City next season they must ensure that the right players are added to the squad this summer.

The odds are already out for the 2018 World Cup final of France vs. Croatia on Sunday, but don't forget that there is also a game on Saturday.

Supporters at Birmingham's Archway outdoor cinema screen broke into applause for Southgate's team within a minute of the final whistle.

Disappointment went hand-in-hand with pride as the English media showered Gareth Southgate and his players with praise and sympathy on Thursday after their surprise World Cup run came to an agonising end at the semifinal stage against Croatia in Moscow.

It was the plucky South Americans' second World Cup title, with the first coming on home soil in the inaugural edition in 1930.

"It's felt like a good holiday we've been on - and we're enjoying every moment of it", said the Manchester United left wing-back.

"So I made a decision to build a pub", Lewis said. You don't get that reaction if you haven't played as well as you have.

Scenes after the game were, perhaps unsurprisingly, more subdued than after the quarter-final win against Sweden.

Chris Treloar, 34, said: "I'm absolutely gutted, especially with the way the goal went in".

The World Cup in Russian Federation has thrown up some stunning twists, turns and shocks, so it's perhaps fitting that its final game will feature the smallest nation to appear in the last stage of the tournament since 1950.

"It's been fantastic until now".

"We worked as hard as we could.it hurts, it hurts a lot and it will hurt for a long time".
