England have suffered World Cup heartbreak at the semi-final stage.

Gareth Southgate’s men went down 2-1 to Croatia after extra-time in Moscow.

This means Croatia will meet France in Sunday’s World Cup final.

It was Mario Mandzukic’s goal in the second period of extra time the saw Croatia seal the deal.

It was England who opened the scoring with a fifth-minute free-kick, only for Ivan Perisic to level midway through the second half.

But it’s Mandzukic’s strike that sets up a repeat of the pairing from a 1998 semi-final.
