They will meet a French team which eased past Belgium 1-0 in their semi-finals, and which boasts a population difference of around 62 million people more than Croatia.

Both teams went on strong offensives testing each other from the onset of the match, but it was England to open the score by England's defender Kieran Trippier going just six minutes into the game.

Referencing the 52 years that England have gone since winning the World Cup, The Guardian sport section leads with the image of the moment Mario Mandzukic fired the winning goal beyond Jordan Pickford.

Southgate - whose stock has risen as England have impressed in Russian Federation - has been wearing a trademark waistcoat throughout the World Cup.

Croatia now have the chance to take revenge on France after losing 2-1 in Paris when the sides met in the semi-finals back in 1998 - Dalic travelled to that World Cup as a fan. Suddenly, England looked like the exhausted ones.

The Croatians had enough left in the tank to put away England, but France have been the strongest team in the tournament.

"No way will they have such an easy route next time". Belgium seems like the safer play, with $100 on the more talented, fresher team netting you $130.

Anderson into Wimbledon semi finals
Federer was completely out of sorts by now and his uncharacteristic struggles on his forehand didn't improve in the fourth set. But Anderson is not letting his thoughts run away, drawing on his experience of reaching the final of last year's US Open.

Russian Federation is staging its first-ever FIFA World Cup, which kicked off in Moscow with a remarkable opening show at Luzhniki Stadium on the evening of June 14.

They will, however, have to reflect on a glorious opportunity to reach a World Cup final that has been wasted.

When England don't have the ball, they struggle against teams who are comfortable with it.

For England, this was so much better than anyone could have possibly expected.

England won their opening game at a major tournament for the first time since the 2006 World Cup. They reached the World Cup semi-final for the first time since Italia 90. It could be a repeat of that under-strength group game that brought a Belgian victory.

During the day England fans were planning the best and least expensive way to get hold of a ticket for the final.
