Jubilant Croatia fans revel in World Cup semi-final win over England

Roy Keane

Croatia equalised in the 68th minute, thanks to a goal by Ivan Perisic who profited on some weak defensive work by England, who looked below-par in the second half.

England got off to a flawless start, taking the lead only five minutes into the match thanks to a spectacular free-kick from wing-back Kieran Trippier.

"The players, the squad and everybody involved in the World Cup for England have a reason to come back home with the pride that they gave everything and they made their country, not fully happy, but they made their country proud". He said as soon as Croatia got the upper-hand in Wednesday's semifinal, England reverted to old, inferior tactics that included hoofing the ball from defence to attack and simply hoping for the best. "But when we pressed them it turned out that they haven't". We worked so hard.

"And I think he needs to take the most credit out of every one of us".

The Liverpool defender, who has now reached the finals of the Champions League and the World Cup within two months, said he has proven himself to be one of the world's best defenders. However, we showed again that we are not exhausted, we dominated the game physically, mentally, in all aspects.
