Both of those runs ended in defeats on penalties, but there is a belief that something could be different this time.

England last won the World Cup in 1996. And a young, likeable side with an eminently sensible and humble manager in Southgate have captured the hearts of a nation. Kieran Trippier has given England a 1-0 lead with a fifth-minute free kick in the World Cup semifinal against Croatia.

"So we lost the game and then on the Tuesday we were playing again, so I thought, "Well, I'd better put the socks on".

England are out of the World Cup and Roy Keane is reminding everyone when they should be happy.

Croatia is into the World Cup final!

'Before the game, the whole talk was about the final, ' Keane began.

Aside from Modric's unique set of skills they have quality in practically every position, with Ivan Rakitic and Mario Mandzukic also key to their hopes of reaching their first final.

Real Madrid playmaker Modric has excelled at times in Russian Federation, both on the ball and in terms of his leadership qualities.

The quartet of former footballers were last together earlier in the tournament and viewers got a real kick out of Keane telling his colleagues to cool the jets after they beat Panama 6-1.

The crowd in Hyde Park went berserk as England scored, and those watching on the huge screen were drenched in beer as plastic cups flew through the air amid wild celebrations.

"There is still a lot to play".

Outside of those two tournaments, England's best total was eight for the Lineker-led 1990 squad and also in 1954 when Nat Lofthouse struck three times. "But we have nothing to lose, we will enjoy this game, and hopefully we can write history", said defender Dejan Lovren, of Premier League side Liverpool.

"They of course have a very strong midfield so, (it is about) denying them space and making sure awareness of distances and coverage of the pitch is correct and (knowing) the right moments to press".

Against Denmark and Russian Federation in the earlier rounds, Croatia were also forced to go through the ordeal of penalties before advancing, but the fact remains that they will face France having played 90 minutes more than Didier Deschamps' team due to their accumulated extra-time workload. "We feel much easier at this point", said striker Mario Mandzukic.

It was edge of your seat stuff and England were on the back foot.

Goalkeeper Danijel Subasic soldiered on against Russian Federation despite hurting a hamstring, while right-back Sime Vrsaljko is expected to miss the game.

England had no answer - neither on the field as their passing game was replaced by hasty clearances and long balls forward nor on the bench as Southgate was unable to make the switches that might have changed the game.
