  • Belgian soccer fans celebrate their team's World Cup victory against Japan in Jette a Brussels municipality on July 2

England manager Gareth Southgate insists his side will face their toughest challenge of the World Cup to date when they lock horns with Croatia in the semi-final.

"We are going to play England in the League of Nations (in October) and we don't have a proper stadium to play that game. Only great teams can be as fearless as we were and fight back from a goal down against teams like England", Mandzukic said.

In Moscow, some England fans emerged from the Luzhniki Stadium in tears and being hugged by others while jubilant Croatian supporters celebrated around them.

That's proved to be the case, although they have relied on large part on grit and determination to see them through the knockout stages, beating Denmark and Russian Federation on penalties before seeing off England in extra time.

Two teams remain in one of the biggest tournaments in the world.

Matt Reece, 25, who works in marketing, said England had far outperformed the low expectations of them when the tournament began.

"It looked at the least we would take the game beyond extra time, but great credit to them, they managed to produce the moments that won the game".

The Croatians had enough left in the tank to put away England, but France have been the strongest team in the tournament.

As more players piled on, they crashed into the photographers.

"But I also don't want to miss England in the World Cup final", said David, a 42-year-old from Leeds.

"The more of these tests we can come through, the better, not just for now, but moving forward".

"We prepared to get to the final and we want to play it". The players and all of the staff, they have to be proud.

Harry Kane confirmed his reputation as a striker of high quality and John Stones looks to be developing into the class act so many have expected for so long. They reached the World Cup semi-final for the first time since Italia 90.

Lukaku would need a fantastic performance against England in the third-place play-off to nudge Kane off top spot. It could be a repeat of that under-strength group game that brought a Belgian victory.
