Luka Modric celebrates after scoring his penalty in the shoot-out win over Russia

England were knocked out of the World Cup on Thursday morning (AEST) after a 2-1 semi-final loss to Croatia, one game short of securing a historic berth in the tournament final.

Alli has not quite hit full gear in the World Cup campaign, but has been vital to the England side nonetheless and did score a header in the quarter finals against Sweden.

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 booked their place in the final by seeing off England 2-1 after extra time, making light of the fact that the Three Lions hail from a land with a population of around 53 million.

"I don't think realistically we expected to be here".

Meanwhile the England men's U20's team achieved World Cup glory after beating Venezuela 1-0 a year ago.

Trippier's set piece on five minutes was England's 12th at Russian Federation 2018, more than any other Three Lions side. And from the resulting free-kick, Alli's Spurs team-mate Trippier sumptuously found the top-right corner.

In their other appearance, in 1966, in London, they entered popular folklore by beating West Germany, an achievement that many fans have long thought they would never see again.

Granted, Croatia are no strangers to chasing the game. I am sure everybody will enjoy watching that match.

The two sides must pick themselves up and dust themselves down after suffering the crushing disappointment of semi-final defeats to play for the modest prize of third place in a fixture often criticised as pointless. Thank you, England": "A simple message of gratitude from the Express, accompanied by a picture of Southgate and his players showing their appreciation to the travelling supporters.

"We've left everything out there". You see what's happening. "The only time it happened in Belgian football was in 1986, when we finished fourth".

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".

"A couple of weeks ago, I would have taken this result", said another England fan.
