It’s our year, say England fans in Moscow

England fans around the world launched into wild celebrations but as the game wore on the celebrations turned to commiserations as Croatia first equalised through Ivan Perisic and then Mario Mandzukic scored the match victor in extra time. Milan Badelj's 53rd-minute goal was cancelled out by a Gylfi Sigurdsson penalty but substitute Ivan Perisic struck in the 90th minute to kill off any chance of Iceland progressing.

Neville believes it seemed as though Kane has been struggling with his fitness since playing 120 minutes against Colombia in the last-16.

But England has not been in the final since 1966, when it won its only World Cup title. His goal sent the game into the overtime period with 1-1 draw. "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. We are facing another daunting task but we are ready for it.

But Raj Singh, a Canadian who supports England because he has relatives in Britain, said the team may have passed up their best opportunity in a lifetime to reach a World Cup final.

"In 1998 I was in France for the first three games as a supporter". I don't realistically think any of us did.

"A team like Croatia, we know their threats going forward, they have some quality players". "But when you're in charge of the game and have the chances we had, you have to take a second goal at that point".

The French national football team defeated Belgium 1-0 in the semifinal match of the 2018 FIFA World Cup, played on Tuesday night in Russia's Saint Petersburg, to become the first team to vie for the much-coveted FIFA World Cup Trophy this year.

"This is fantastic. Two players played with half a leg, but it didn't show".

"What the players did today, the strength, energies levels, was incredible", he said. I'd be amazed if he doesn't come out and something emerges about his fitness.

"I have to tip my hat to our physios, our doctors, our medical staff for their efforts". They have not, on paper had tough opposition in the knockout stage and you could maybe look at their team and say that a team with that talent and those names has made tougher work of Denmark, Russia and England than they should have.

"Tears flowed for our heroes in the east after they gave the best performance in a World Cup for 28 years", The Sun said.

"But I'm still 100 percent proud of them".
