Perisic hails 'dream' goal as Croatia reach final

HDTV was broadcast for the first time during the 1990 World Cup in Italy

England secured their biggest major tournament win in Russian Federation, as well as winning their first World Cup penalty shootout and first knockout match since 2006 en route to just their third ever semi-final in this competition.

Kieran Trippier was an unlikely third name on the list of those who have scored for England in a World Cup semi-final, joining Sir Bobby Charlton and Gary Lineker with a glorious fifth-minute free-kick.

The i carries a picture of captain Harry Kane with the caption "heartbreak" alongside a story previewing Mr Trump's arrival in the UK. But Ivan Perisic gave them an unlikely lifeline in the 68th minute and Zlatko Dalic's team dominated from there.

Regulation time could not separate the two teams, with the score tied at 1-1, until Madzukic found a way to score the victor.

Kane kept a dignified silence when Liverpool's players were having fun at his expense, and now is the time to make Lovren pay.

On paper he was not even Sam Allardyce.

You couldn't ask for anything more from the group of players.

England won their opening game at a major tournament for the first time since the 2006 World Cup.

"At the moment we all feel the pain of the defeat". Did we expect to be in this position?

"Nobody could be any happier than me to play the final against France", the 29-year-old said.

"This team have taken us to a place that we never thought we would get", Neville said at full-time.

"The dressing room is a hard place at the moment".

From Harry Kane's stoppage-time victor against Tunisia to Jesse Lingard's wonder goal against Panama.

If they win, they head to the final against France.

As the Tottenham full-back remarked only last week when he was compared to David Beckham, "not bad for a lad from Bury".

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.

"In four years, we're going to be unstoppable". Liverpool centre-back Dejan Lovren has continued the good form he showed towards the end of last season too. England coach Gareth Southgate all but conceded he wanted to lose that one so as to avoid a harder route to the semifinal, and his strategy worked, right up until Croatia's Mario Mandzukic beat England 'keeper Jordan Pickford in the 109th minute Wednesday night.

But Southgate is no longer a football man whose global career is been defined by that penalty miss at Euro 96.

Now England and Belgium meet again in the match no one wants to play in.
