See how fans celebrated Croatia's World Cup semifinal win in Zagreb

The All England Club has come under increasing pressure to rethink its 2pm start time for Sunday's men's singles final with the football showpiece in Moscow kicking off at 4pm in the UK

"It's not a game any team wants to play", said England manager Gareth Southgate after his team lost 2-1 to Croatia after extra time in Wednesday's second semi-final. He played the game with great maturity.

"The third-place game is not a match we wanted to be in", Kane said.

"But equally we want to be a team that are hitting quarter-finals, semi-finals, finals - that is what we have aimed to do in the long term".

England are out of the World Cup and Roy Keane is reminding everyone when they should be happy.

"By the end several players were out on their feet and we were down to 10". I think people should be dignified in victory and defeat'.

"Soccer for Croatians is like hockey for Canadians", said Ivan Kulis, who works at the Toronto Croatia Academy and goes back to Croatia often.

Suggesting that "English journalists [and] pundits from television" had underestimated Croatia to their detriment, the former Spurs man revealed that his side took these words to heart; determined to show England what they were capable of. "Then they suddenly realized that I was underneath them".

'All these words from them we took, we were reading and we were saying: "OK, today we will see who will be tired"'.

"But I've said all along we're not flawless, we're not the finished article". I'm sure that we'll recover and we'll be fine - this is the World Cup final and there are no excuses. "I have huge respect for France".

Iran threat to pull out oil cushion
India has said it will engage with relevant stakeholders to ensure that energy security is not compromised. In return, India buys 13% of the total exported crude oil from Iran, which is a huge proposition in itself.

"The Croats had a very hard match and they were behind". This shows character and is what makes me proud.

"We played better than we did against Argentina". Here are our top five moments from the 2018 World Cup! Even Dalic himself has described his team's journey through the tournament as a "miracle".

'My players have played Champions League football and are champions in their countries.

In getting to the final, Croatia have surpassed the country's fabled 1998 side.

"We've definitely written ourselves into history, given the conditions and infrastructure back home, we are a miracle", he added.

"The ability of the team and the style of play we've evolved enormously in a short period of time".

But even though England are out, they've still had an unbelievable tournament.

'That is another reason why we are a miracle. So we'll try and get the team that is best able to do the job. Here, that has been enough'.
