Tired and battered, Croatia reaches its 1st World Cup final

Fellow fan Alex Klein, 28, added: "If we win, if we beat Croatia I'll, I'll probably cry, because to see England in a World Cup final is, is like a dream, a lifelong dream".

Vukojevic, a former Croatia worldwide, published the video on social media after the match on Saturday in a move which was criticised by Russian politicians.

UPDATE: July 11, 2018, 4:39 p.m. EDT It's ultimately heartbreak for England, who lost 2-1, so here's hoping for more beers to drown the sorrows.

London's Hyde Park looks like a war zone after thousands of England fans left after watching their team lose 2-1 to Croatia in the Fifa World Cup semifinals.

"We have been watching England in all their games".

Just before the extra time began, Peard said he was hopeful England would pull through and turn the game around, although he wasn't feeling particularly good after Croatia scored their first goal.

"We prepared to get to the final and we want to play it".

A win for England would help erase World Cup futility.

The tongue-in-cheek video, which they uploaded on their social media page, reminded fans to be "careful when using torches and pyrotechnics", so they can enjoy the game just as much as everyone else.

He said: "They were the better team, that's all that happened".

"It's been an incredible run and I feel lucky to have been here for this match".

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

"So for them to go back to their country and take a nation like Croatia to the World Cup final is something fantastic".

France earned their semifinal victory over Belgium courtesy of a perfectly executed set piece on a corner that saw Samuel Umtiti perfectly slot home a header.

"When you get to this stage of the competition, the margins are fine. they've taken two of their (chances) and we weren't able to respond". To simply bet on which team wins, France is -210 and Croatia is +175.
