  • Gareth Southgate England 2018 FIFA World Cup Croatia

England's hopes of claiming a place in Sunday's final against France faded as a second half goal from Ivan Perisic and an extra time victor from Mario Mandzukic left Gareth Southgate's players shattered, with Keane suggesting the English agony should be laced with pride.

Kieran Trippier's maiden worldwide goal fired England ahead early in Moscow, but Ivan Perisic levelled in the second half before Mandzukic sent Croatia through to a showdown against France on Sunday.

Croatia can be backed at [3.0] to win the World Cup on Sunday, while opponents France are the strong favourites at [1.5]. Croatia had been desperately poor but started to get a foothold in the game as the match rolled past the hour mark and Luka Modric's influence grew.

France will be favourites on Sunday, but don't write Croatia off.

Gareth Southgate's team dominated the first half, and they had Croatia on the ropes for lengthy periods after Trippier's fifth-minute free kick had given England the lead.

Croatia is trolling the England national soccer team after dumping it out of the 2018 FIFA World Cup in heartbreaking fashion.

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

Keane was also critical of England skipper Harry Kane, as he suggested the Spurs striker looked off the pace as he laboured through most of the second half and extra time.

Perisic, who switched between left and right flanks on several occasions during the game, was a constant threat with his pace, direct running and finishing.

Telesport's Juraj Vrdoljak compared Croatia's second-half comeback to an "adrenaline-driven man lifting a truck to save his child". Two minutes later and it was Rebic again in the action but he just failed to connect to a cross from Perisic on the left.

A late Croatia onslaught was unable to complete the turnaround in 90 minutes and England stepped things up again in extra-time, nearly retaking the lead when John Stones had a header cleared off the line by Vrsaljko in the 98th minute. The big game was even being screened in LA. Perisic, in contrast, has shown that he belongs on it.
