England supporters gathered in Hyde Park to watch the World Cup semifinal threw an impressive amount of beer into the air while celebrating their team's goal against Croatia.

The comedian - one of the creators of football anthem Three Lions - posted a message on Twitter after Croatia defeated England in the semi-final on Wednesday night, saying they did the country proud.

Speaking on the eve of Croatia's meeting with England, Dalic said: "We are a country where anything is possible, so there are no surprises".

Matt Reece, 25, who works in marketing, said England had far outperformed the low expectations of them when the tournament began. They surrendered the first goal in each of their three knockout-stage matches.

History in Turin had its echo in Moscow on Wednesday, and England's scorer 28 years ago, Gary Lineker, was at the Luzhniki Stadium to see it. "I don't think realistically we expected to be here".

P.S. It's Coming Home!

Jeremy Corbyn wrote: "A heartbreaking way to go out but won't forget what a great tournament it's been for @England".

When the final whistle blew and they knew they were going to their first World Cup final, the Croatians ran to their jumping and cheering fans in their iconic red-and-white checkered jerseys.

The Grand Tour star Jeremy Clarkson congratulated Croatia on their victory. But right now, the signs are all looking good.

Olly Murs tweeted a crying emoji, saying: "I hate football".

Look at the other teams they'll be up against. But the squad that England fielded in 2018 seemed like a completely different team, despite comprising numerous same players.

"It hurts, it hurts a lot". These Lions have more technical ability and less ego than any English team in memory, and that includes the side that lost a semi on penalties to West Germany in 1990.

"I felt a bit disenfranchised, then once the party's on you gotta go, and Gareth's engendered this new positive spirit and vibe", Mr Lowe told The Telegraph.

The team has already grown remarkably in just two years, and that growth seems certain to continue.
