He had positive words for England, led by Gareth Southgate, following their semi-final loss to Croatia after extra time. "I would play a final without a leg if necessary".

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.

This time around, we could see the stars play, or we could see some more reserves to get some guys some minutes, and that makes picking here hard.

Towering defender Harry Maguire has risen to cult hero status at the World Cup and he has had an army of family and pals following him around during the tournament.

Every time a major tournament comes around, a familiar refrain is heard in the region: "If only Yugoslavia was one country, imagine the wonderful team we could have".

When the final whistle blew, the Croatians ran straight to their fans, jumping into the sea of red and white. To everyone who believed this time was different.

England fans are the subject of a Federation Internationale de Football Association investigation after claims were made that "possibly discriminatory" chants were sung during the Three Lions' World Cup semi final loss to Croatia.

Gareth Southgate: 'I couldn't listen to Three Lions for 20 years'
Kris Tarplee has ordered a new black embroidered waistcoat on Amazon Prime, he said: 'My waistcoat should be with me by tomorrow. The Football Association confirmed on Sunday evening that England would be wearing an all-white kit in Wednesday's match.


The game: "You have to be proud of the second half and extra-time".

"We were planning to leave, but now we have to stay until Monday", said Sinisa Pavlek, a Croatian living in Germany as he emerged from the stadium with a broad smile on his face. "Mistakes were always going to happen but I think to be a top team you have got to play in that style".

I would go back to what I said at the start of this tournament, which was that if this England team can go home with everyone saying that they could not have given anymore, then that would mean they had a good World Cup. "They should be more humble and respect their opponents more".

Take Me Out host Paddy McGuiness said: "Deeply upset but what a World Cup campaign @England have given us".

England and Belgium have both produced last-gasp victories at the World Cup - Belgium beating Japan 3-2, England beating Colombia on penalties - but their two games together lack significance.

England coach Gareth Southgate praised Kane, who is two goals ahead of Belgium striker Romelu Lukaku for the Golden Boot.
