The sound was eclipsed only by the joy that greeted Mario Mandzukic's extra-time victor and the impromptu fireworks celebration in the wake of the final whistle.

It also meant that England, for all their controlling play and short passes in midfield, had the option of whipping the ball into the corners for Sterling to chase after.

"We're gutted", said Harry Kane, still on course to finish as the tournament's top goalscorer with six strikes in Russian Federation.

"We've left everything out there, you can look at the goals and the chances, but I don't think over the six or seven weeks we've been together we could've given any more".

Having gone into extra time and penalties in their previous two games ahead of Wednesday's semi-final, Modric said there was an assumption that the Croatian team would be exhausted, giving England the advantage.

"There's a lot we could have done better".

Croatia were always considered dark horses for the World Cup, and they lived up to that tag by reaching the final in Russian Federation.

"I have been in sport in different areas for long enough to know what my life is day to day".

He added: "Let me tell you, whether we win or lose the game, my life will not change", he said.

England's Kieran Trippier (not pictured) scores their first goal from a free kick past Croatia's Danijel Subasic. Only this win against England did not go to penalties but Zlatko Dalic's men can look back at some impressive performances, most notably the 3-0 win over Argentina in the group stage, and draw inspiration from it.

Croatia started the find their range as the second half wore on and Perisic levelled for Croatia in the 68th minute, nipping ahead of Kyle Walker to steer home Sime Vrsaljko's cross past a diving Jordan Pickford. There will be legitimate questions about how much they have left in the tank.

As well as scoring, Perisic also hit the post for the second straight game and set up Mandzukic's victor, heading a poor clearance toward the Juventus striker to score. "It's just unbelievable to get back in the game in this way".

Croatia’s Mario Mandzukic and scores his team’s second goal during the World Cup semifinal against England at Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow on July 11, 2018.

Vrsaljko cleared a John Stones header off the line midway through the first extra period.
