Dejan Lovren makes SHOCK revelation after Croatia beat England

On Sunday, Croatia will take on France on FOX4 to battle for the World Cup trophy.

"In the first half, it was probably nerves for both teams, especially Croatia after the early goal by England".

England's devastated players could barely drag themselves off the turf as they slumped in front of their fans at Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium.

That's proved to be the case, although they have relied on large part on grit and determination to see them through the knockout stages, beating Denmark and Russian Federation on penalties before seeing off England in extra time.

France are rightly considered the better side based on how the 2018 World Cup has played out, but Croatia have defied the odds for the past month.

"All played out": Southgate hugs Pickford amid the mass of gloomy England players and staff, but the i Paper sport section leads on Kane's words rallying his teammates to use the experience as fuel for future tournaments.

"There are a lot of things that have been hugely positive for us".

After watching their team stumble at major tournaments for decades, often falling to much smaller nations, England supporters had begun to think that 2018 might be a different story.

Croatia last reached the semis of a World Cup in 1998 and the moment wasn't lost on the Inter Milan man.

"Croatia came on strong and they have some outstanding players and some huge experience".

We've entered the final today. They're a likable group with a likable manager, and they can really play.

England take on Croatia in the World Cup this evening.

When England don't have the ball, they struggle against teams who are comfortable with it. "It's more than I ever expected, to be honest, so it's pretty good". They reached the World Cup semi-final for the first time since Italia 90. Belgium and England face off in the third-place match after losing in the semifinals.

"Hold your heads high": The Telegraph focuses on the positives of England's run and Kane's insistence that "this is just the start".
