We can win knockout games, and we can get to semifinals, but the next step is to go one further.

"We were planning to leave, but now we have to stay until Monday", said Sinisa Pavlek, a Croatian living in Germany as he emerged from the stadium with a broad smile on his face.

Croatia has advanced to its first-ever World Cup final in men's soccer.

'They're on their way to being top players but they're not there yet but we can see we're progressing and really heading in the right direction'.

"I can't ask any more", England manager Gareth Southgate said of his team.

"If I was in charge of the FA there would be no doubt that I would keep Gareth Southgate and Steve Holland in their jobs and give them the chance to take the team to the next Euros and the next World Cup".

With his first global goal, just over a year after his England debut, the 27-year-old Trippier joined David Beckham as the only English players since 1966 to score on free kicks at the World Cup.

Having gone into extra time and penalties in their previous two games ahead of Wednesday's semi-final, Modric said there was an assumption that the Croatian team would be exhausted, giving England the advantage. "They have to use this experience for benefit and I know that what´s happened over the last few weeks will make them a stronger team".

Croatia's Ivan Perisic scores their first goal in their 2-1 win over England in the World Cup semifinals in Russian Federation.

"But we handled it well, but unfortunately we conceded at the wrong time, after that I thought we again picked it up again and done well".

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

It was a painful defeat for Belgium, foiled at the semifinal for the second time in their history, as the clock ticks on their so-called "golden generation" of players.

England looked at their best and most threatening when Sterling was zipping around up front, yet they struggled to get him involved in the second half as Croatia's all-star midfield belatedly took control of proceedings.

France coach Didier Deschamps said he was delighted to have the chance to bury the pain of the Euro 2016 final, which his side lost on home soil to Portugal. Kane is also three goals ahead of France pair Kylian Mbappé and Antoine Griezmann, who will both feature in the World Cup final against Croatia, on Sunday.
