  • Scott Carson looks stunned after his early error

Trippier gave England a dream start, curling in a free-kick from 25 yards past the despairing dive of Danijel Subasic after Dele Alli was brought down in a central position. Yet what Sterling has lacked at this World Cup in goals, he has made up for with his sheer work-rate and intelligent movement in attacking areas of the pitch.

However, this time he was far more direct, playing on the last shoulder of the Croatian backline and zooming off towards goal rather than retreating away from it.

Croatia, in their first semi since 1998, levelled through Ivan Perisic after 68 minutes and then looked the more unsafe side.

The Three Lions were knocked out at the semi-finals stage by Croatia after Mario Mandzukic's extra-time victor.

Croatia's Mario Mandzukic scores their second goal in their 2-1 win in their semifinal against England.

"For us as a team, it's another chance to create a small piece of history".

Croatia’s Mario Mandzukic celebrates at the end of the World Cup semifinal match against England at Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow on July 11, 2018. "It hurts a lot, [and will hurt] for a while". We should have killed the game before extra time, but this is an fantastic achievement for us, a dream come true.

"I think in the first half, we were really good and we maybe could've got another and in periods throughout the game we had chances".

"It's been great to get to this stage and we know we've done everyone proud but we wanted to go on and win it".

"We've come an incredibly long way in a short time and the experiences against Colombia, Sweden, is probably beyond where we thought we could go".

Dalic was asked by worldwide reporters if his side would be exhausted for Sunday's final against France after playing extra-time for a third straight match - just as British journalists asked him if they would be exhausted after two lots of extra-time before the semi-final.

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

Having been knocked out of Euro 2016 by Iceland and failing to win a single match at the 2014 World Cup, optimism was not high heading into Russian Federation.

In delirious scenes in Paris, fans let off fire crackers and released smoke flares.

Local fans are now gearing up for the final match against France on Sunday. "We've all grown up watching England and to represent your country at a semi-final of a World Cup, there's no better feeling".
