Croatia's World Cup final opponents, France, are associated with the words "formidable" and "dramatic" as well as "lucky".

And because BA were clearly really going for it, customers were also given boarding passes with customer name "Football" and destination "Home", which we'd imagine might fetch a bob or two on eBay should England come out triumphant.

The Three Lions had a dream start to their first semifinal since 1990, with Kieran Trippier netting from a free kick in the fifth minute.

Ecstatic Croatia coach Zlatko Dalic is confident tiredness will not be an issue for his side when they face France in the World Cup final despite once again coming through extra time to beat England on Wednesday.

The draw at 90 minutes led to a heated extra time period with during which England's Dele Alli and Croatia's Ivan Rakitic almost came to blows.

Tense moments followed for the 12th man as Croatia tried to pile the pressure on and fans had their hearts in their mouths when the score was only kept level by some desperate England defending.

Andy Bradley, 42, from Hull, East Yorkshire, was among the throng of despondent England fans leaving the Moscow venue.

After watching their team stumble at major tournaments for decades, often falling to much smaller nations, England supporters had begun to think that 2018 might be a different story. We're taking it step by step.

"We were like lions out there tonight and we will be the same in the final", he said.

"Whether that had an effect on us not wanting to take as many chances as we had, subconsciously, I don't know". For 70 minutes we battered them.

Parv Moondi, 49, from Norwich, was heading out of the Luzhniki and back to central Moscow.

"We prepared to get to the final and we want to play it".

"I just feel so disappointed".

"We played better than we did against Argentina".

The game was first introduced at the second World Cup finals in Italy in 1934, but has since become massively unpopular with the teams - and is extra added work for a meaningless honour.

"We were louder, they were carrying us, they picked us up when we were not in control of the game", Dalic said of the supporters.

Southgate said playing regularly in big matches was a key stage of development for his players and that the way they dropped away in the second half was perhaps a result of their inexperience.
