Dele Alli, Lingard blamed for England’s loss to Croatia

Dele Alli, Lingard blamed for England’s loss to Croatia

England fans walk home disappointed after losing to Croatia in the Fifa World Cup semifinals.

Her spokeswoman said: "We would certainly like to host a reception for the England football team, who did so well in Russian Federation, and that is something that we are going to talk to the FA about".

It was no surprise that Croatia cavorted on the pitch in celebration with fans and family long after beating England in the semi-finals of the World Cup on Wednesday night, but a wiser head might have ushered them quietly to ice bath and bed. England came back in extra-time but only after a Colombia player hit the crossbar.

Football fans in Reading had a traumatic evening as they went through all the emotions as England crashed out of the World Cup.

Earlier the spokeswoman said May had been effusive in her praise for Southgate, who has won plaudits for his leadership, grace under pressure and intelligence.

But despite the heartbreak, they and manager Gareth Southgate have reconnected many people with the national team.

Given they arrived in Russian Federation as rank outsiders, however, Southgate was invited to detail the positives from a campaign that appears to have repaired the strained relationship between England and its team.

The game ended with England down to 10 players and out of substitutes.

England ladies also found themselves in the World Cup finals three years ago, only to be beaten 2-1 by Japan in the final game.

"We've left everything out there and we'll look at the goals and the chances, but for sure I don't think for the six or seven weeks we've been together we could have given more".

The game turned in overtime on two plays - one on which a defender was alert, the other on which a defender was caught napping. "It's unlucky we couldn't bring it home for them, but hopefully there's time in the future". "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. The governing body did not provide further details.
