The spuriest England team ever bottles it at the pivotal moment- who would have thought it!!

Absolutely gutted

Here’s hoping we don’t have to wait another 28 years for our next semi final.

Definitely loads of positives to take from the last few weeks, fully gutted right now though.

Determined to not be negative. Credit to Croatia, are they the smallest country to ever reach the final??

Really enjoyed this world cup and this game could so have easily gone the other way.

England are never ever going to get a run of games so favourable though.

Also LOL at anyone saying what a chance we had to win it. France would molest us harder than Fritzel in his basement after a 2 week holiday.

Uruguay are smaller
 
Still, gotta love Croatia. Modric is a total boss.

No one actually thought England had anything like a whiff of a chance against France though did they?

We don’t have a scapegoat! Fuck

We did alright. Shame. Should’ve won the game in the first half.

Thought our subs could’ve been better, but we did okay. Modric absolutely bossed it second half. We couldn’t match that.

It’s been real.

Fuck Spurs players, and Liverpool, United too

I’m proud.

Anyone who thinks we had it in the bag wasn’t watching the same game. Croatia were better from the second half onwards, and we have it our all.



I said we had it in the bag.
 
We were 1 nil up and controlling the game for the 1st half - we just didnt kill them off
 
So what are you proud of?  Are you proud of the fact we scored 1 goal in open play all tournament?

Their midfield ran us ragged. Deciding Goal was down to tiredness. Their defence barely gave us a sniff after half time and again england seemed hell bent on passing back to pickford and same old long ball shit I thought we'd exiled to the past.

Still proud of the team for making it so far.

should have scored more than once in first half. were poor in 2nd half.
 
did well this tournament and far far better than i thought would and was first tournament in ages i liked watching England but the first good team we play with genuinely good players in we go out as normal of old .
 
...Still better than losing to Iceland two years ago or going out in first round as did in Brazil '14. 
 
I did warn against ppl downplaying Croatia . That  muppet Ferdinand should have known better for instance.

I say this with respect but this is a cunt thing to say friz. Where would this England be without Kane, Trippier and at a stretch Alli in this tournament?

Spurs players have contributed more than any other team to our best finish in 28 years and you talk bollocks like that. Jest or not.

The word "bottle" has lost all fucking meaning in football. This England team had loads of it, it's technical ability they're lacking.

Great effort looking back but this was there for the taking. Such fine margins but we lost our way in the second half and couldn't get it back. I don't even feel disappointed really, just rueful today what could have been.

yeah small country like that produce some proper footballers though don't they, England can't even produce one midfeider with half the ability of Modric. Scholes was probably as good, Wilshere had to many injuries and didn't improve his game further as for Gerrard and Lampard they are more like Box to Box players.

For once England actually stood up to be counted in a major tournament. No shame in their performance tonight, though so obvious areas of fault and deficiencies. We just don’t have the class where it matters.

Modric is just dreamy. Too much experience in that Croatia side. Modric, rakitic and mandzukic are all serial winners.

It hurts, but at least we had a good time along the way. Unlikely we will have as good a chance of reaching a World Cup final for another 20 years or more.

France and Croatia are both pretty likeable teams. Hope France win, but wouldn’t be upset for either.

About the tiredness - well the England team is younger and didn't have to go through 2 rounds of extra time and penalties
 
We lost the opportunity of a life time.

Quite funny that this will be a repeat of the third group game. Belgium vs England with neither team giving a shit. Turns out it didn't matter who came 1st or 2nd in the group.
