"We had hoped [for this] and we believed in our team, but the feeling when we finally entered the finals can not be compared to anything", said Croatia fan Ivan Kecerin.

And the former Everton boss is likely to take this game quite seriously as he looks to end the Red Devils' World Cup campaign on a high.

"We salute you": It's pretty much a love letter from the Mail's sport section to Southgate and his team.

Roberto Martinez's men were edged out 1-0 by France in Tuesday night's semi-final - which was held at the St Petersburg Stadium, the same venue as this match.

"England fans in Hyde Park waste about $10,000 in beer on team's first goal against Croatia", suggested one sports reporter while tweeting out the clip. Mario Mandzukic scored a poacher's goal in the 109th minute, latching onto Perišić's flick to put Croatia ahead and into their first ever World Cup final.

Gareth Southgate applauds England's fans after their semifinal loss to Croatia.

"We were not creative enough, having just two efforts on target, and in the second half England were overrun in midfield by Modric and Rakitic".

"Heroes" There's plenty of sympathy in defeat from The Mirror, which offsets the image of Jamie Vardy and Dele Alli crouched on the turf at the final whistle with the message, "We're proud of you all".

He said: "What was it two crosses two goals?"

"We've proved to ourselves that is possible and we've proved to our country that is possible".

"It's been an incredible run and I feel lucky to have been here for this match".

"I was in Nice to watch us lose too Iceland, I was in Kiev to lose against Italy".

"We lived the dream".

"They played their best, it obviously wasn't to be".

Russia's ministry of communications said there had been 6,300 new applications for fan IDs, the document that allows visa-free entry to Russian Federation during the World Cup, since England beat Sweden in the quarter-final on Saturday.

"A couple of weeks ago, I would have taken this result", said another England fan. "In extra-time we showed we are still able with the fatigue to play our game".
