England out of World Cup after extra-time defeat to Croatia

England are out of the 2018 World Cup after a dramatic extra-time defeat to Croatia in Moscow.


Kieran Trippier had given the Three Lions the dream start with a wonderful opener after just five minutes but a second-half strike from Ivan Perisic took the tie the distance.

And Mario Mandzukic struck deep into the second period of overtime to end England’s dreams of a first trophy since 1966.

Croatia will now face France in Sunday’s World Cup final while Gareth Southgate’s side travel to St Petersburg for the third-place play-off with Group G rivals Belgium on Saturday.
