Kane ‘gutted’ as England’s World Cup dream dies

A $100 bet on England would net you a $200 profit if they were to win in regulation, but keep in mind that England just played an extra 30 minutes and has a day's less rest.

The Three Lions manager has sported a navy blue Marks & Spencer one throughout England's run to the World Cup semi-finals in Russian Federation, which has led to increased sales and more Google searches for the item back home.

But many of these players have come of age on an worldwide stage.

And the Liverpool defender cheekily said that it has something to do with the parents across the country.

The signing of a world class goalkeeper remains the primary target for Liverpool this summer, particularly following Loris Karius' high profile mistakes in the Champions League final at the end of May.

Croatia, a country of about 4 million people, came to a standstill as fans watched the game on screens in squares and cafes.

England soccer fans react after losing the semifinal match between Croatia and England. "I feel disappointed but proud". England have been eliminated from the World Cup right at the penultimate stage, and Croatia are now through to Sunday's finals instead.

"We were planning to leave, but now we have to stay until Monday", said Sinisa Pavlek, a Croatian living in Germany as he emerged from the stadium with a broad smile on his face.

"We started slowly but we've shown our character, just as we have in the previous two knockout rounds when we were one goal down in both matches". There will in time be positives to take, it's very hard now to put that into context, it's a bit too soon, really, because I think you have to suffer the result a little bit. You don't get that reaction if you haven't played as well as you have.

Speaking to the BBC's World Cup Daily podcast earlier in the tournament, he said: "I'm slightly concerned because as a centre-half who took a lot of knocks to the head I'm not normally synonymous with fashion icons!"

A first World Cup final since 1966 and a showdown with France agonisingly slipped away.

"The first half was not good for us".
