England vs. Croatia final score, recap

Lovren Presser

The players meet again on Wednesday when Croatia and England clash and, with a place in the World Cup final at stake, there is no better time and chance for Lovren to finally redeem himself.

The Draw in 90 minutes was matched at a high of [6.0] in-running.

Cars and vans drove through the streets with Croatian flags stretched tightly across their bonnets, honking their horns at each other as workers clocked out for the day early and headed home to watch the game.

In the 1998 semi-final, two Lilian Thuram goals won the match for France and that was the furthest the Vatreni had gone in the World Cup.

Local fans are now gearing up for the final match against France on Sunday. However, unlike England at the 1990 tournament, it was again third-time lucky thanks to Mario Mandzukic's 109th-minute goal.

England began the first half in truly dominant fashion.

The Three Lions suffered an extra-time 2-1 defeat at the hands of Croatia in Moscow, after a roller-coaster game which saw England take an early lead through Kieran Trippier, only for a second-half equaliser from Ivan Perisic to take the game to extra time and set up Mario Mandzukic's late victor. "Second half, fair play to Croatia they came out and put the pressure on and we were under the cosh for a little while", the 24-year-old skipper said.

Telesport's Juraj Vrdoljak compared Croatia's second-half comeback to an "adrenaline-driven man lifting a truck to save his child". At one point you can even see Croatia defender Domagoj Vida pull one of the piled-on photographers up and kiss his forehead while goal-scorer Mandzukic pats him on the back. Pickford, suddenly, was forced to take a far more active role in the game.

Trippier gave England a dream start, curling in a free-kick from 25 yards past the despairing dive of Danijel Subasic after Dele Alli was brought down in a central position. Lingard failed to connect with a Kane through ball in 78th, Kane miss-hit a header off a free kick in stoppage time, and Stones' header from a corner was cleared off the line by Vrsaljko in the 99th. The Croatia striker evaded his marker, found space in the box, and needed just one touch to tease the ball past Pickford and break a nation's hearts.

"There is no weakness in a team which is in the final", Dalic added.
