WORLD CUP 2018 SEMI FINAL
England 1 Croatia 2 [ after extra time ]
England took an early lead through a Keiran Trippier free kick but Croatia gained in confidence as the game went on and finished the 90 minutes strongest after the first half belonged to the Three Lions and it was really no great surprise when they equalised via Ivan Perisic.
Extra Time seemed inevitable from around 10 minutes to go in normal time and that was indeed the case but as the second period of the additional 30 minutes wore on a familiar scenario was getting ready to provide us with a spot kick finale.
And then suddenly on 109 minutes 2-1 for Croatia with the goal from Mandzukic
Final score England 1 Croatia 2 after extra time.
It’s France [ 1998 winners ] v Croatia [ their first World Cup final ] in Sunday’s final.
