Kyle Walker: Proud to have brought love back to the England team

Kyle Walker: Proud to have brought love back to the England team

Despite not being in Russian Federation, the expectant mother has sent her father to the World Cup in her place.

Gareth Southgate's England side did the nation proud as they just came up short in their semi-final defeat to Croatia.

In the midfield duels, France fields the elegance and power of Paul Pogba and N'Golo Kante against Croatia's precise pair of Luka Modric and Ivan Rakitic. The bet was only paying $1.27 but could lead to an nearly $15,000 profit for the punter. For the second time in four World Cups, France will lose on penalties.

Croatia went into the match with five changes, while Spain fielded the same XI and were off to a brilliant start as Alvaro Morata gave them the lead in the seventh minute.

Had he scored his first half chance against Croatia in the semifinal, when he hit the post from two yards with England leading 1-0, Kane could now have been just 90 minutes away from emulating Bobby Moore by hoisting the World Cup aloft as England captain.

Croatia have already bettered what the 1998 team achieved but they now have an opportunity to beat France in the final and set a new benchmark for the future Croatian teams.

"It was a tough game, a 50-50 game, I'm sure we'll look back at stuff we could have done better but we worked as hard as we could".

"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.

Meanwhile, Marcelo Brozovic set a World Cup record against England for the most running in a match.

"To become a winning team there are hurdles you have to overcame - and we've surpassed many of them". Harry Kane and Romelo Lukaku have had great tournaments overall but ghosted in the semifinals, contributing to their sides going down in defeat.

"One of the guys I'm with is friendly with a couple of them and it's been unbelievable being able to meet some of the lads", he added.

A third-place game can still be exciting.

Belgium's golden generation, while disappointed, would love to finish third, something they have never managed (previously they finished 4th in 1986 and will match that regardless).

History in Turin 28 years ago had its echo in Moscow on Wednesday. The ball rebounded nearly out of the play, then sat up for Kane to take another shot from less than two yards.

England's largest travelling support of the tournament so far, estimated before the game to be up to 10,000, were in full voice throughout, urging their young Lions on.

"Put a line through the Belgium game, that doesn't count".
