England hailed as heroes after World Cup heartache

ENGLAND FAN

ENGLAND FAN

Tripper had the freedom of the park in the first half, but as the game wore on they forced England back, they forced Tripper back and they forced Young back.

Speaking to Sky News 22 years on, the ex-footballer said: "Football's coming home, I couldn't listen to it for 20 years, frankly".

Stevie Staunton on Gareth Southgate: Banter Merchant and France killing all the semi-final craic.

"England we're proud of you, that's all I've got to say". It will be a really hard task to assess everybody over the next 24 hours and get them mentally back to where we want them to be for a game like that, but that will be the challenge.

He said: "Well, I think I've said this before, but I was not a renowned fashion icon throughout my playing career, so it's rather odd to feel that way now".

"In the first half, give them credit they did play relatively well, in the second half, bottle jobs". The 26-years-old went off during the seventh minute of their extra-time. You don't get that reaction if you haven't played as well as you have.

Shane Clee, 37, an agricultural goods salesman, said: "I'm a huge footie fan, and a big Shrewsbury Town fan in particular".

Croatia, on the other hand, resorted to extra time against Denmark, Russia and England, while in the first two games, they needed penalty kicks to advance.

"During extra time against Russian Federation I felt knee pain".

"Now is a time for us to be strong as a group and take the time to reflect on the performance a bit more over the next couple of days". Asked how far he thought the still young England team could progress in the next World Cup, he said: "This far, if not the final". We've been waiting 28 years just to get to the semi-final again.

Croatia now have the chance to take revenge on France after losing 2-1 in Paris when the sides met in the semi-finals back in 1998 - Dalic travelled to that World Cup as a fan. What an incredible World Cup, full of twists and surprises, and what a night for Croatia.

Indeed, the former defender is thrilled to witness the country unite behind his side during a tumultuous political period, with Brexit causing uncertainty and division across much of England and Britain.
