Gareth Southgate gave England staff handwritten notes before World Cup

It was no surprise that Croatia cavorted on the pitch in celebration with fans and family long after beating England in the semi-finals of the World Cup on Wednesday night, but a wiser head might have ushered them quietly to ice bath and bed.

Despite Kieran Trippier giving England an early lead, Croatia clawed their way back into the game and edged past Southgate's side after extra time.

It was a tough day for England: after their overtime loss in a tight World Cup 2018 semifinal match against Croatia, the team had to let go of their high hopes for World Cup glory this year.

Zlatko Dalic said that dealing with the prospect of facing France in the World Cup final on Sunday would wait as Croatia celebrated an historic first appearance in football's showpiece event.

While going to 30 minutes of extra time in all three of their sudden death matches - not to mention emotional energy-sapping penalty shootouts in two - has proved beyond doubt Croatia's resilience, it has taken its toll.

England had only ever played there once (a 2-1 defeat to Russian Federation back in 2007), and it seems like the curse / losing streak is destined to continue for the time being.

While most of us will be plonking ourselves in front of a screen for the big game between England and Croatia tonight, there are a dedicated few that are actually making the trek over to Russian Federation to see the action unfold IRL. We showed our character, we showed that we deserved to be in the final and people should respect us. We're taking it step by step. We did not underestimate them.

They had only previously been in the World Cup semi-finals in 1966, when they won the title on home soil, and 1990 so Southgate said he was trying to balance his pride in his young team with remembering how rare such chances are.

Laura Grimes, of Cambridge University Press, said: "The huge amount of language data we've collected and analysed gives us fascinating insight into the mood surrounding the World Cup".

"I think that's maybe something for a couple of days time, at the moment we all feel the pain of this defeat", he told reporters. "We played today better than against Argentina".
