Mexico chief photographer Yuri Cortez was stampeded by Croatian players when they scored a go-ahead goal in extra time of their semi-final against England.

"I always said before the tournament, England have never over-achieving".

"But I'm still 100 percent proud of them".

In the first half last night, it could have been game over for Croatia had England taken their chances after Kieran Trippier had given them an early lead with a peach of a free-kick. The average age of the English squad was under 26, the joint-youngest in the World Cup tournament, and only three of the current players - Ashley Young, Jamie Vardy, and Gary Cahill - are over 30.

"Times have changed - it was 28 years ago", he said, noting the current team's style differed from the individual stars like Paul "Gazza" Gascoigne who grabbed headlines then.

"I don't think realistically we expected to be here but once you're here and played as well as we did, you want to take those opportunities in life.

It would have been so fantastic to win the cup".

It turns out the football isn't coming home. 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.

It meant they were ahead for 63 minutes, for a large chunk of that time also dominating their opponents only to succumb to an Ivan Perisic equaliser that took this contest into extra time.

As the game dragged on, the crowd tried to rally the team from afar, launching into several renditions of the national anthem "God Save the Queen".

"The atmosphere's been absolutely electric", said Michael Grant, 36, a London property developer.

She said: 'Wasn't to be this time but it's been a great journey that's made the country proud.

"It's been really nice to see that".

Even in penalties, you wouldn't have counted this England team out.
