It was the first time England had reached a semi-final in the World Cup since 1990. My players push me, they are mentally stronger than me.

The fixture is generally forgotten about and thought of as a meaningless game, as neither team would much rather prefer to have played in the final - and the winners of the so-called "bronze medal" are usually not remembered once the tournament finishes. We're going to celebrate, to rest and then we will prepare for France. "Going to extra-time might be a problem along with the fact France have had an extra day to recover but there will be no excuses", he added.

The Times and The Guardian said it was the "end of the dream" while i said "Southgate's team will still return as heroes after superb World Cup effort".

According to the official Federation Internationale de Football Association report about TV ratings for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, the third-place fixture between Uruguay and Germany was the 14th-most-watched game out of the event (out of 64 total fixtures) in terms of global television viewers, at 245 million (which takes into account both viewers of the live telecast and viewers of replays or tape-delayed telecasts).

Dalic was only appointed as Croatia coach towards the end of their qualifying campaign, leading them to Russian Federation via a play-off win against Greece.

Given they arrived in Russian Federation as rank outsiders, however, Southgate was invited to detail the positives from a campaign that appears to have repaired the strained relationship between England and its team.

Luka Modric has been inspirational throughout their run, yet there were numerous outstanding performances at the Luzhniki Stadium as Croatia recovered from a shaky opening half hour.

Hero or villain? Trump's court pick is in for a fight
In that event, a few Democrats will probably break ranks and support the nominee in order to enhance their re-election prospects. Kavanaugh was hired as a law clerk for Justice Anthony Kennedy in 1993 and was even sworn in by Kennedy as a judge on the D.C.

Among the best was Marcelo Brozovic, the Inter Milan midfielder brought into the line-up to provide extra steel in front of the defence. It will be a really hard task to assess everybody over the next 24 hours and get them mentally back to where we want them to be for a game like that, but that will be the challenge.

Laura Grimes, of Cambridge University Press, said: "The huge amount of language data we've collected and analysed gives us fascinating insight into the mood surrounding the World Cup".

"They played their best, it obviously wasn't to be".

Ivan Perisic levelled and Mario Mandzukic secured a 2-1 win in extra-time, propelling the country to a first World Cup final as England's manager wondered what could have been - 22 years on from his semi-final heartache at Euro 96.

Croatia's World Cup final opponents, France, are associated with the words "formidable" and "dramatic" as well as "lucky". But I'm remarkably proud of a group of players who have really advanced.

He will just be hoping that all of them are fit enough for one last effort against a fearsome French side.
