England got to the semi-final stage of the world cup in confident mood and the backing of millions of fans back home and those couple of thousand fans lucky to be able to get to the game vs Croatia.
The game started better than anyone could have expected with a goal by Kieran Trippier, a free kick on the 5th minute, England had more chances to score in the first half as Croatia held on.
As time elapsed in the second half for some reason the players energy levels dwindled and Croatia started to come back in to the game, they were now all over England who were simply hanging on to that 1-0 lead.
Sadly for England they let a goal in on the 68th minute with Ivan Perisic scoring , it was now 1-1 and England’s heads started to drop, subs were needed as the players looked even more tired, Rose and Rashford and Dier came on to little effect.
England held on to the 1-1 score right up to extra time, they got through the first period of extra time, sadly Croatia scored in the second period and by now England was done and dusted, no energy and heads so low they could have kissed their own backsides.
The game ended with England going out at the semi-final stage, we all have to be happy with what the manager and this team has done, it was a great effort that made us all come together and support our national team like never before.
One thing is for sure we can be confident that future England games will be supported better than ever knowing how well the players did in this years world cup and the effort they shown was like never before.
England also helped get rid of some of the doom coming from our irresponsible government who couldn’t run a bath let alone a country in dire need of leadership from another party!
