Comeback kings Croatia have unfinished business at the World Cup

Comeback kings Croatia have unfinished business at the World Cup

With only hours to go before England take on their World Cup semi-final against Croatia in Russia, Katie Goodland made sure she paid a lovely tribute to her fiancé, England caption Harry Kane.

After watching England beat Colombia and Sweden in the knock-out rounds, the nation has been swept up in a newfound football mania.

But he lamented England's failure to take full advantage of what appeared an unusually easy route to the final, avoiding most of the heavyweight teams in Russian Federation. "I think he's given everything for the team and there was a period of the game in the second half where we didn't have that controlled possession. There's a lot of enthusiasm". "I am happy with all my games, but I am here for the team, what can I do, I love games like this, but its all about the team", the goalscorer said, before adding.

"I'm absolutely gutted", Gary Mullan, 36, a financial consultant, said.

"They just kept coming towards me and they fell on me!"

But not everyone from Bournemouth will be rooting for Harry Kane, Harry Maguire and Jordan Henderson. His first goal for England.

She said: "I'm hoping Croatia can reach the final but I'm expecting a really intense game".

Suker, the star forward in Croatia's 1998 World Cup team and an elected member of UEFA's executive committee, has not been implicated. The whole of Croatia and Croatians overseas are celebrating now.

Stan Chattersley, who has lived in Bournemouth for 15 years, admitted he would not be supporting England.

"They've been unbelievable the whole tournament but at the end of the day, it was our best chance ever and we haven't taken it", Reece said. This is one of the biggest successes of Croatian sport.

Most England fans were gracious in defeat, with one fan saying "Croatia was the better team" on the way out.

Katich said the World Cup had brought an already-close Croatian community even closer together.

However, FIFA says the sentence is not final because the former Dinamo Zagreb director general is appealing to a higher court. "So it's been great", she said, laughing.

Football was all set to come home. We've seen all those fans in that park out to watch them, I never thought I'd see scenes like that to be fair.

"They can be absolutely proud".
