Croatia become smallest nation to reach World Cup final since 1950

The Tottenham full-back's free-kick gave England an early lead in their World Cup semi-final against Croatia

England's match in Moscow on Wednesday night will be for a place in the World Cup final against France on Sunday at the Luzhniki Stadium, but Southgate believes his side will not face an easy route to get there. But we've fallen just a bit short.

"Why didn't you ask me about when I played well?"

Chris Treloar, 34, said: "I'm absolutely gutted, especially with the way the goal went in".

"Maybe [that was] a outcome of being ahead and being the least experienced team in the tournament with the chance to get to a World Cup final", he added.
