Top Memes After Croatia Beat England in World Cup Semi-final

England vs Croatia Ashley Young

Although he scarcely shirked mentioning his bemusement with English "expertise" when it came to football, any slight may be forgiven on what was the biggest of nights for Croatian football.

Southgate will take his team to Rijeka's Rujevica Stadium on October 12 in the new Uefa Nations League but the game will be played behind closed doors as the Croatian Football Federation will finish off their two-match punishment from Uefa, according to ESPN's Mark Ogden.

Croatia will face France in the World Cup final on Sunday.

Gareth Southgate's side took the lead through Kieran Trippier's stunning fifth minute free-kick but Ivan Perisic levelled matters in the 68th minute, before Juventus striker Mario Mandzukic popped up with the victor in extra time - ending England's World Cup dream and sending Croatia into their first ever World Cup final.

"We must go again and try to achieve our dreams".

Henderson hasn't always been given the credit he deserves but his World Cup performances have just been too good for England fans to ignore. "I don´t think realistically any of us did", he said.

Silva wants Spain to use speed at World Cup to beat Russian Federation
Ramos said. "We have had this philosophy for many years, and comparisons with our best national team of all time are hard ". But a convincing 3-0 defeat to Uruguay suggests Russian Federation are unlikely to be a match for Spain .

"This is fantastic. Two players played with half a leg, but it didn't show".

Vrsaljko also hit out at the media, with England favourites going into the last-four clash. "We knew what they were doing and where", he said. I know you'll be hurting right now but you should come back into the country with your head held high'. We are in the final and that is the biggest success in Croatia history.

Kane looks set to claim the Golden Boot as the World Cup's leading scorer, but the Tottenham star rarely looked like adding to his six goals against Croatia.

But with 90 minutes left of the campaign, squad players, who Southgate accepts have been patient for their chance, are pushing to be involved from the start.

After comfortably negotiating the group stages - the only blemish being a defeat to Belgium in a meaningless fixture where both sides rested key players - England ended their traditional penalty shootout woes by defeating Colombia 4-3 via that method.

On Saturday, when England beat Sweden to reach the semi-finals, riot police were called into the seaside city to contain some rowdy supporters.
