How social media reacted to England’s semi-final defeat

England saw their World Cup journey come to a dramatic end after falling to an extra-time semi-final defeat to Croatia.

Kieran Trippier gave Gareth Southgate’s side an early lead with a great free-kick in the fifth minute, but Croatia grew into the game with Ivan Perisic levelling to extend the match.

However, Mario Mandzukic was the hero when the striker slotted home in the 109th minute to send Zlatko Dalic’s team to their first World Cup final on Sunday.

Here, Press Association Sport looks at how social media reacted to the result in Moscow.
