Fans thank England for 'making nation dream'

AnalysisWhy this England World Cup side has set the tone for a generation to come

An early goal from Kieran Trippier looked to have England on their way to a first World Cup final since 1966, but Ivan Perisic headed home in the second half to force extra time, where Mario Mandzukic scored from an England defensive miscue to send Croatia to their first-ever final.

The signing of a world class goalkeeper remains the primary target for Liverpool this summer, particularly following Loris Karius' high profile mistakes in the Champions League final at the end of May.

Southgate's men were then beaten in the semi-final at the Luzhniki - Croatia running out 2-1 winners after the teams were level at 1-1 after 90 minutes.

"I think that's maybe something for a couple of days time, at the moment we all feel the pain of this defeat", he told reporters.

Overall, it's not a surprise Belgium is favored, as it has looked like the better team in this tournament and has more talent.
