Prince William wrote from the Kensington Palace Twitter feed that he "couldn't be more proud" of the England players, adding: "You've had an incredible World Cup, made history and gave us fans something to believe in".

Matt Reece, 25, who works in marketing, said England had far outperformed the low expectations of them when the tournament began.

"Pride of Lions": Southgate comforts Danny Rose at the final whistle as England are "defiant but defeated" by Croatia. "We need all the players but they must all be fit on the pitch".

Croatia's strength of character will serve them well in the World Cup final against France, their coach and players said after they came from behind to beat England.

As fans left Hyde Park - now a sea of rubbish - 27-year-old Henry Ludlam was optimistic for what lies ahead for England.

England's only goal in the game sparked scenes of pandemonium, only to be replaced with eerie silence as Croatia equalised early in the second half and then snatched victory in extra time.

Vida had on Sunday said that the "glory to Ukraine" video he posted after his team beat Russian Federation on penalties in the World Cup quarter-finals on Saturday night was not a political message. "Everyone was nervous, but when they got a second goal, everyone took so much confidence, everyone was up in the air, the club was full, there was a great atmostphere".

After the match, soccer fans in the United States and around the world reacted to England's loss with either heartbreak, or reveled in their failure.

Would Katich be able to sleep on Sunday night? "I reckon there's a lot we could've done better".

In a sea of England jerseys, there was one lone Croatia shirt in the packed pub - two Croatian fans in total, who embraced in a hug after their momentous win. Dalic's insistence after the England match that "the whole of the stadium chanted "Croatia, Croatia" was belied by the fact that a huge chunk of the Russians in the building loudly jeered fullback Domagoj Vida nearly every time he touched the ball. Croatia has never advanced to the championship match.

England's fans have taken their time to join the party here as their team conducted their campaign in Volgograd, Nizhny Novogorod, Kaliningrad, Moscow and then Samara.
