  • Ricky Gervais dogs and 8 weird and wonderful messages of support for England

"We know there is more to come from this @england team".

Croatia will play for World Cup supremacy for the first time ever, while England fans in Penticton will watch their team play Belgium for third place on Saturday, beginning at 7 a.m. local time.

Yet while it was complete focus on the job in hand as the players prepared for what is the most high-pressure game of their worldwide careers, the relaxed vibe surrounding the England base camp in Repino remained.

Croatia beat England to book their place in the World Cup final in Moscow on Sunday.

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

The Croatia defender Domagoj Vida added to the long-standing tensions with a video that was released of him shouting "Glory to Ukraine", after his team had put Russian Federation out on penalties in the quarter-final.

Former players and staff have also posted a series of positive messages after England's run came to an end.

"A couple of weeks ago, I would have taken this result", said another England fan.

It was the plucky South Americans' second World Cup title, with the first coming on home soil in the inaugural edition in 1930. "That makes me proud". We'd love to see them!

"We are deservedly in the final", Croatia coach Dalic said.

The Croatians become the smallest nation to contest the World Cup final since Uruguay, who won the tournament in 1950 when the nation had a population of around 2.4 million. "We know what it takes and in such moments you forget any fatigue you may feel", said the 29-year-old at Tuesday's eve-of-game press conference at Luzhniki Stadium. "Thank you, England": A simple message of gratitude from the Express, accompanied by a picture of Southgate and his players showing their appreciation to the travelling supporters.

"I've been to lots of failures and I thought this was the time". No-one believed before the World Cup that we could go this far, but we believed.

"But you won't get a better chance than this to win the Word Cup".
