England vs. Croatia final score, recap

'Croatia are the best team we have faced yet' – Southgate on England's semi-final opponents

"But knockout football is fine margins and when you have spells in the game and when you have chances against real quality, you've got to make them count. We're looking forward to the future", said Young.

People were outraged when Lovren and his teammates, who were were not given yellow cards for their dirty play, but England's Kyle Walker was carded for holding the ball.

Both Portugal and England appeared to adhere to that in the group stage, with both making sure to keep one player on the opposing side's half of the field while celebrating dramatic goals.

Mario Mandzukic scored in the 109th minute to give the Croats a 2-1 victory over England on Wednesday.

Winger Ivan Perisic levelled scores on the 67th minute after a great cross from defender Sime Vrsaljko.

"But when you´ve got to this point, and we´ve played as well as we have, you want to take those opportunities in life".

"The all-round perception was that this is a new-look England who have changed their ways of punting long balls upfield but when we pressed them it turned out that they haven't", Vrsaljko said.

'It's time to hold our heads high as a nation and be proud of each other. It's been a fantastic journey. "I think we've built a house here now on good foundations", he said. No country can expect to win global trophies but, as Southgate said after the defeat by Croatia: "We've got to use it as a springboard to consistently reach the latter stages of tournaments". The whole thing is beyond where we thought we might go.

"There was a spell in the second half when they got the goal and their tails were really up and we had to weather the storm and lost our way a little bit". It hurts, I don't know what else to say, it hurts.

France, which won its only title at home in 1998, will have an extra day of rest after beating Belgium 1-0 on Tuesday.

In delirious scenes in Paris, fans let off fire crackers and released smoke flares. There will be legitimate questions about how much they have left in the tank.

A huge crowd of fans who watched a television broadcast of the match unfurled a big Croatian flag and lit numerous red flares as the party engulfed the city right after the final whistle.

France can be crowned world champions for the second time in their history on Sunday and now lead the Euro 2020 betting at 4/1 (5.0).
