They're Coming Home: England's Dream Is Over

Waistcoat sales have increased back in England

Waistcoat sales have increased back in England

We started a bit too casually, and England deserved to score.

The Three Lions manager has sported a navy blue Marks & Spencer one throughout England's run to the World Cup semi-finals in Russian Federation, which has led to increased sales and more Google searches for the item back home.

Football may not be the only thing "coming home" this month as England boss Gareth Southgate's World Cup waistcoat is being sought by the Museum of London.

Prime Minister Theresa May said: "Wasn't to be this time but it's been a great journey that's made the country proud".

"A kick in the Balkans": The Metro references Croatia as England's tormentors with a pun but insists Southgate's men are "still our heroes".

England lost much of their first-half momentum after the break.

He said: "I just feel so disappointed. That makes me proud". "If we win I really want to be there, but I just can't afford the prices being quoted".

"This was Croatia to get to the World Cup final - it's not going to get better than this I don't think".

"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. Belgium seems like the safer play, with $100 on the more talented, fresher team netting you $130.

"We've come an incredibly long way in a short space of time", Southgate told a press conference after the match.

On that occasion, the Uruguayans defeated a heavily-fancied Brazil team 2-1 at the Maracana in the final second-stage group game, which effectively served as the tournament's final.

That's proved to be the case, although they have relied on large part on grit and determination to see them through the knockout stages, beating Denmark and Russian Federation on penalties before seeing off England in extra time.

World Cup fever is gripping the country as the Three Lions defied expectations to go their furtherest in the tournament since 1990.

In Moscow, Croatia fans said they were taken aback by their side's win.

"The first half was not good for us".
