Looks like it’s not coming home. Devastating news for England as Croatia knock them out of the World Cup after a 2-1 defeat in the semi-final. With England scoring almost straight after kick-off, fans were up in roars. However, this then turned into nerves as Croatia levelled proceedings in the second half. But in the end, Croatia takes the win, leaving England players dejected on the pitch.
Had England beaten Croatia, they would have seen themselves in their first World Cup final in 52 years. However, it just was not meant to be. Croatia displayed their talent on the pitch and are now set to play against France in the World Cup final on Sunday.
However, England are not out of our sights just yet. A third place play-off against Belgium is set for Saturday, and although it is not first, maybe a third would be somewhat okay. Commiserations for England again…so near, yet so far.
