Kane says England defeat will hurt for a long time

Kane says England defeat will hurt for a long time

The Three Lions, with an average age of just over 26 making them the third youngest at the tournament, fell to a heartbreaking 2-1 defeat after extra time following a goal by Mario Mandzukic.

Kieran Trippier's early free-kick in the semi-final against Croatia on Wednesday gave the Three Lions their ninth set-piece strike of the tournament.

Harry Kane wore the centre-back ragged, but it was Lovren who successfully marshalled the England captain at the Luzhniki Stadium on Wednesday night. "We wanted to win it all", Kane said.

"I've got a amusing feeling that the momentum is so good, and, you know, especially now that we're all going to turn up with special Gareth waistcoats, and that can only help can't it", said fan Lee Walkup, 50.

It's four years away, sure, and a lot can change in that time.

The World Cup in Russian Federation has thrown up some stunning twists, turns and shocks, so it's perhaps fitting that its final game will feature the smallest nation to appear in the last stage of the tournament since 1950. "We will go into this final to win it as we have still not gotten over the [2016] final".

The Croatians went into Russian Federation as the 20th-ranked team in the world, but in particular their midfield talents of Real Madrid's Luka Modric and Barcelona's Ivan Rakitic meant they were fancied by many as dark horses for a decent run.

US President Donald Trump ‘destabilising’ oil market, says Iran
Some observers question whether such high rates of production could be implemented quickly and sustained for any length of time. Consultants Kpler estimated the kingdom's oil exports rose by 407,000bpd in June to 7.62 million bpd compared with May.

Both of his goals came from set-plays, and given he is averaging 0.29 xG per 90 minutes, he can be expected to get at least one chance in this game.

He will just be hoping that all of them are fit enough for one last effort against a fearsome French side.

On Croatia's equaliser, Pickford questioned whether Perisic could have been penalised for a foul on Kyle Walker, adding: "Maybe it was a high foot against "Walks".

Ultimately, their supporters have been England's motivation for success, and as the thousands joyfully celebrated Trippier's goal from a direct free-kick (the first from an England player since David Beckham's against Ecuador in 2006), the feeling was that the nation had rediscovered its heady passion for worldwide football, not felt in nearly thirty years. Look at the fans there tonight, there was a lump in the throat and the hairs on my neck stood up watching the fans at the end.
