It was England's first World Cup semi-final since 1990 and Gareth Southgate suggested his players "came of age" despite losing to Croatia.

The final blow was inflected when striker Mario Mandzukic put the Croatians 2-1 ahead in the 109th minute to send them through to the final.

To celebrate the unprecedented win, the entire Croatian cabinet swapped their usual formal dress for football jerseys during their session in the Croatian capital the following day.

The victory of captain Luka Modric's side is "Croatia's biggest promotion", said the prime minister.

Gerrard, who made it to the quarter-final in 2006, said: 'I'm gutted for the players and I'm gutted for Gareth because, as everyone knows, it was an incredible opportunity to go to a World Cup final.

In capital Zagreb, more than 10,000 people gathered in the central square to watch the match despite rain.

Both Sterling and Kane were targeted as England's main threats and fan thought they were given a rough ride.

Croatia, a small east European nation of just 40 lakh population, became the lowest ranked team ever to reach a World Cup final to be held on Sunday in Moscow. But once you're here and played as well as we did, you want to take those opportunities in life.

'I am so proud to work for this team and this manager'.

In their other appearance, in 1966, in London, they entered popular folklore by beating West Germany, an achievement that many fans have long thought they would never see again.

Balon d'Or: "For me, it's not important, I already said that".

The mutual appreciation between squad and fans was slightly marred by news on Thursday that Federation Internationale de Football Association had opened disciplinary proceedings against the FA following a report of possible discriminatory chanting by England supporters during the Croatia match.
