'We left everything out there', says England manager Southgate

'We left everything out there', says England manager Southgate

Although they saw more of the ball, Dalic's side initially struggled to offer a significant improvement after half-time and England had a penalty shout turned down just after the hour - Domagoj Vida getting a slight touch on the ball before sending Sterling tumbling.

Gareth Southgate's side took the lead through an early Kieran Trippier free kick, but a second half Ivan Perisic equaliser forced the game to extra time.

"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". He relates to us massively. "Nothing he is going to say is going to make us feel any better", Kane said. He gives you that confidence.

"I'm still not entirely convinced by him and would suggest he is still an accident waiting to happen if the right buttons are pushed and enough pressure is applied".

"We are where we are as a team", Southgate told ITV Sport. He's made sure that everyone has stuck together through good and bad moments, and made sure our feet stayed on the floor.

"I will get more attention and it won't be easy to go out for meals if I am in certain places but it won't change my view on the world or the things I attempt to do".

And Walker insists that there is more than just professional pride at stake.

England, playing with zip and goal, looked sharp going forward as a rattled Croatia side tried to regroup, with Raheem Sterling proving a real handful but the score remained 1-0 at the break. The injuries started to pile up, legs looked gassed and the opportunity to seal it became reality for Mandzukic, who sneaked behind the back of England defender John Stones to score the victor.

"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".

Meanwhile, England will face Belgium on Saturday in the third-place match.

Despite the much-vaunted attack of teenager Kylian Mbappe and Antoine Griezmann, France's defense proved the difference as they shut down Eden Hazard and Romelu Lukaku and they showed they will be hard to beat on Sunday. "For them to still be singing when we're seeing friends and families, chanting our names and singing the manager's name, is completely different".

"And I think we need to take full credit for that".
