PHOTOS: England fans disappointed by World Cup loss

Published: Updated:

Mario Mandzukic scored in the 109th minute as Croatia came from behind to beat England 2-1 after extra time on Wednesday and reach their first World Cup final, where they will face France on Sunday, and send the Balkan nation into raptures.

England, appearing in their first semi-final since 1990, had looked on course for their first final since 1966 as they led through Kieran Trippier’s fifth-minute free kick and totally dominated the opening half.

England fans and players alike shared a deep disappointment following the match results when Croatia's Mandzukic struck with a well-taken low shot during the extra time.
