How the British media reacted to England's World Cup exit

Howard TerryJul 13, 2018

"It was a tough game, a 50-50 game, I'm sure we'll look back at stuff we could have done better but we worked as hard as we could".

Her spokeswoman said: "We would certainly like to host a reception for the England football team, who did so well in Russian Federation, and that is something that we are going to talk to the FA about".

In a modern sporting miracle, Croatia, a nation of just four million people, will play in the FIFA World Cup™ Final.

England's midfielder Dele Alli (L) and England's midfielder Jesse Lingard (R) react after a missed chance during the Russian Federation 2018 World Cup semi-final football match between Croatia and England at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow on July 11, 2018. I said this in the group stages and I'm thinking, quarter-finals England will get knocked out. "We have one more game left, and we have never been more motivated".

The Telegraph's front page called for England to "Hold your heads high" while the Guardian captured supporters' mood with the headline "The hurt goes on".

Croatia looked vulnerable from set-pieces against Russian Federation, conceding the equaliser in extra-time via a set-play, so this is an area England can exploit. It's been incredible watching and feeling a nation who has been buzzing game after game. The scenes in Croatia's capital of Zagreb were astounding.

"Knockout football is about fine margins, we had spells in the game against a side with real quality and you've got to make them count", said Southgate on ITV after the game.

Eric Amsalem, a 48-year-old Croatian fan with his face painted in the colours of the national flag said: "It's a small country. No trophy this time but it feels like the start of something every Englishman could get used to".

F1 driver Hamilton wrote on Twitter that the team had done England proud, showing "real grit and determination".

Mario Mandzukic scored a poacher's goal in the 109th minute, latching onto Perišić's flick to put Croatia ahead and into their first ever World Cup final.
