Croatia reaches World Cup final, Good bye England
Croatia has won 2-1 in an extra time thriller against England and will play France in Sunday night’s World Cup final. Mario Mandzukic pounces deep into extra time to send Croatia to a first-ever World Cup final.
England are out of Russia 2018, beaten in extra-time by Mario Mandzukic’s goal, but not in that feeble, unreliable way that so many England teams have gone in the past.
There was another brave performance from Gareth Southgate’s young team that suggested that they can live among the elite until eventually this time they succumbed to that miraculous sporting nation of just 4.1 million souls, Croatia, who will play France in the World Cup final on Sunday.
