Fans thank England for 'making nation dream'

Having been largely absent during England's run to last night's World Cup semi-final, a host of additional English fans travelled to Russian Federation ahead of their country's game against Croatia last night.

Graeme Souness has singled out midfield duo Dele Alli and Jesse Lingard as an example of why England are returning from the World Cup empty-handed.

However, Kane has not added to his tally since that Colombia match during the round of 16 and Neville is adamant England's star striker picked up an injury during the clash against the South Americans and has been playing hurt ever since.

Even before his goal, Mandzukic had spent some minutes on the turf after a collision with England goalkeeper Jordan Pickford and an agonising attack of cramp left him once again prone on the pitch in the wake of his decisive strike.

Football fans in Reading had a traumatic evening as they went through all the emotions as England crashed out of the World Cup.

"We were like lions out there tonight and we will be the same in the final", he said.

"You've had an incredible World Cup, made history, and gave us fans something to believe in".

The pilot was flying from Prince of Wales Island and bound for Ketchikan when the crash occurred, according to the Troopers. One MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter was already headed to the scene from Air Station Sitka, with another being dispatched.

I said this in the group stages and I'm thinking, quarter-finals England will get knocked out.

It meant another World Cup semifinal heartbreaker for England, only this time the game was under control before it was lost.

Eric Dier then scored the next penalty and England won the shootout 4-3.

"But I think we've built a house here now on good..."

The mutual appreciation between squad and fans was slightly marred by news on Thursday that Federation Internationale de Football Association had opened disciplinary proceedings against the FA following a report of possible discriminatory chanting by England supporters during the Croatia match.

However, fans said the side had "finished further than anyone dreamed". But when you've got to this point and played as well as we have. you want to take these opportunities in life.
