England 1 – Croatia 2

England’s 2018 World Cup dream is over.

Croatia knocked England out of the World Cup in the semi-finals on Wednesday in Moscow.

The night started so well for England. Tottenham’s Kieran Trippier scored his first ever England goal with a fifth minute direct free-kick.

But Croatia levelled in the second half. Inter Milan’s Ivan Perisic drilled home a low left footed shot.

Juventus forward Mario Mandzukic won the match in extra time.

John Stones switched off for a split second, and Mandzukic stole in to score the winner.

England tried to score as Croatia celebrated

An amazing video has appeared on social media in the aftermath of the Croatia-England match.

England tried to score an equaliser when Croatia’s team were celebrating Mandzukic’s winner.

Many will no doubt remember the whole issue from the start of the World Cup over whether a team can kick off if their opposition all exit the pitch to celebrate a goal.

It remains unclear whether this tactic is actually legal in football. Most believe the rules of the game do not allow for such goals.

Nevertheless, the England team clearly tried to punish the Croats for over-celebrating. Video footage revealed how the Three Lions tried to restart the match while Croatia weren’t watching.

This action was missed by TV broadcasters at the time.
