Jack Hendry shared the joy of many as England’s World Cup dream was ended by Croatia.

An early goal from Kieran Trippier sent pints flying across the green and pleasant land as thousands started to google search flights to Moscow for Sunday’s final against France.

Ivan Perisic equalised in the 68th minute with Croatia looking the most likely side to break the deadlock as the match headed for extra-time.

The first period of extra-time passed without any scoring but four minutes into the second period of extra-time Mario Mandzukic took advantage of sloppy defending to slam a low shot across Jordan Pickford into the net.

Despite four minutes of added time England didn’t force a save out of the Croatian keeper with twitter erupting with sarcastic coming home tweets when the final whistle blew

England can now look forward to the third place play-off against Belgium on Saturday as Croatia prepare for their first ever World Cup Final.
