Sweden, who have already returned home from the World Cup after being eliminated, were fined for the same offence prior to their quarterfinal defeat to England.

It relates to the chanting of "no surrender" by England fans and other potentially discriminatory songs.

The third-place match was dropped from the European championship by UEFA following the 1980 tournament but has remained part of the World Cup calendar despite complaints.

"I have got to say the players are incredible, they are an absolute pleasure to work with", Southgate said.

Both Croatia and England had their local fans behind them with each side dressed head to toe in their team's colours.

"Yes we got a bit of luck with the draw and came up against teams we proved to be better than".

"We saw in the last game that they finished the stronger of the two teams". But once you're here and played as well as we did, you want to take those opportunities in life. "There's an energy and connection that's back". "We had six matches playing with this system before we came into the tournament. We knew set plays might give us a competitive advantage, which they did".

Dejan Lovren Says He's One Of The Best Defenders In The World
Before this game they said we are exhausted but we showed in extra-time we had fresher legs than them. "I'm completely happy. " I think people should recognise that I am one of the best defenders in the world and not just talk nonsense".


"We've proved to ourselves that is possible and we've proved to our country that is possible".

"There are more commitments on the back of going out of the tournament as well".

"Once Argentina were out, we just wanted to stay here till the end and watch as many games we could".

Thousands of fans gathered at major outdoor screenings for the knockout games as World Cup fever gripped the nation.

The widespread optimism is a far cry from the reaction England received following their Euro 2016 exit, when the team and then-coach Roy Hodgson were criticised heavily for their underwhelming performance in the competition. I'm not looking for eight years by the way but internationally you have to wait every two years. "We can't do that now but we want to finish third".

Speaking at his pre-match press conference, Southgate said: "We have to decide who can go again physically".
