WORLD CUP: England Vs Croatia Semi Final (Goals & Highlights)

The Three Lions have not succeeded in the last four since their successful run to the 1966 World Cup

The defeat was the fourth consecutive loss at the semi-final stage in a major tournament for England.

England’s semi-final nightmare continues with Croatia defeat

The nation’s only success in the last four came with a 2-1 win against Portugal in the 1966 World Cup, a tournament England won with a 4-2 victory over West Germany in the final.
