Croatian footballers mobbed the photographers' pit after beating England last night

Steve McClaren's England failed to reach Euro 2008 with defeat to Croatia

British Prime Minister Theresa May would like to host an event for the England team after they reached the World Cup semifinals for the first time in 28 years, her spokeswoman said on Thursday.

Mandzukic scored in extra time to make it Croatia 2-1 England.

Not since the European Championships of 1996 had England reached the semi-final stage of any major football tournament and it was the first time they had made it that far in the World Cup since 1990. We haven't said our last word, there is still one more game to go.

Belgium will contest the World Cup third place play-off with England on Saturday and are also 8/1 (9.0) shots to win Euro 2020. The injuries started to pile up, legs looked gassed and the opportunity to seal it became reality for Mandzukic, who sneaked behind the back of England defender John Stones to score the victor.

World Cup semi-final opponents England and Croatia's fines over sponsorship protocols are both approximately 10 times the fine that the Russian soccer federation was hit with after its fans were seen unfurling a banner featuring neo-Nazi messaging.

How divers rescued the first 4 boys from the cave in Thailand
A Thai Navy SEAL commander told reporters he believed there was "a limited amount of time" left to rescue the soccer team. The boys were dived out from the cave one by one, escorted by two divers at one time.

England captain Harry Kane was heartbroken after the loss but admitted that England had paid the price for being too passive in the second half after a bright opening 40 minutes.

Spanish media showed footage of unruly behaviour by Britons during England games.

England's defeat was watched by more people than the All-Ireland hurling final between Galway and Waterford, any 2017 Six Nations game and Ireland's dramatic World Cup qualifier win over Wales. The whole thing is beyond where we thought we might go.

The victory sparked wild celebrations in Croatia, where tens of thousands of fans poured onto the streets and squares, singing, letting off flares and waving red-white-and-blue flags.

Zagreb's main square exploded with joy and wild celebrations after Mario Mandzukic netted the victor in extra time to send his team into the July 15 final at Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium against France.

England wing-back Kieran Trippier had opened the scoring from a brilliant free kick in just the fifth minute, curling the ball over the Croatia wall and into the top right-hand corner.

England had surprised their followers, the nation and other observers with an impressive showing in the World Cup.

Despite the disappointment that comes with defeat, the supporters are proud of the team.

"We've come an incredibly long way in a short space of time".

"By the end several players were out on their feet and we were down to 10".

EU package does not cover all demands of Iran
Washington has since told countries they must stop buying the OPEC producer's oil from November 4 or face financial consequences. Iranians have complained that the hoped-for rise in foreign investment and trade after the deal has not materialised.
