Having been largely absent during England's run to last night's World Cup semi-final, a host of additional English fans travelled to Russian Federation ahead of their country's game against Croatia last night.

Little Croatia through to the World Cup Final!

England will play their final match of the tournament on Saturday afternoon at 3PM on ITV.

England may have looked "confident" during their World Cup campaign but Croatia were the ones to "dominate" in Wednesday night's match, setting them up for a final against "formidable" France.

The Juventus striker finally limped off utterly exhausted six minutes from time but promised unstinting effort on Sunday to bring the World Cup back to the nation of some four million people.

In their other appearance, in 1966, in London, they entered popular folklore by beating West Germany, an achievement that many fans have long thought they would never see again.

Southgate said: "At the moment we all feel the pain of the defeat".

However, fans said the side had "finished further than anyone dreamed".

In 1990, three years before Kane was born, England also fell short at the semifinal stage with a team that exceeded expectations and won the adulation of fans at home with a beloved centre forward. I don't know of a smaller country in a World Cup final.

"When they come up against a decent team, I think it's inevitable that they were going to struggle tonight".

"We salute you": It's pretty much a love letter from the Mail's sport section to Southgate and his team.

Former Wales number 8 Andy Powell has many in his homeland scratching their heads after vowing to go through with a pledge to get the red rose tattooed on his chest if England win the football World Cup.

Despite the potentially imminent tattoo remarkably Powell is still supporting England. But when you get to this point and play as well as we did in the first half, you want to take those opportunities in life.
