Kylian Mbappe revels in England's World Cup misery on Instagram

The Croatia World Cup squad was understandably elated after Mario Mandzukic blasted in a goal deep into extra time, giving Croatia a 2-1 lead over England that put it in position to advance to Sunday's World Cup final.

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

Gareth Southgate will keep the faith with his first-choice XI for tonight's crucial World Cup semi-final against Croatia. "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". It wasn't easy, but I think we were physically ready.

Gary Lineker waved goodbye to Germany when they were knocked out the World Cup and now Scots are doing the same to England. "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".

Modric said: "We should have killed the game even before extra time".

Croatia have been taken to penalties twice in the knockout stages and again had to endure extra time against England.

Croatian-Canadians look forward to World Cup final with pride
We only have a two-day recovery, and I'm sure some of the guys won't be able to get out there. Youth development: Croatian players' children took to the field after their semi-final win.

For England, who captured so many hearts with their run to the semifinals, there will be the same disappointment that has haunted them at big tournaments across the world for 52 years. and counting.

The goal continued the side's astonishing success from set-pieces at the World Cup - they scored nine goals from set-pieces - the most by any team in a single tournament since 1966.

"Maybe the English team should have respected us more, especially when you consider where our players play their football, but this is football and sport. We have had a fantastic journey, further than we thought", he added. "We can mix our sadness that they fell short with a genuine hope that this summer of love under a manager who has surpassed all expectations was more than just a quick fling".

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

Gareth Southgate's men threw everything that they had at the Croatians, including - it turns out - an attempt to take advantage of a perceived rule loophole.

With such a youthful squad taking part in Russian Federation, there is clearly a hope that Wednesday's semi-final defeat won't be the last time that this group of players contest the latter stages of a major tournament.
