The FIFA 2018 World Cup final is going to be played on the 15th of July 2018, as France and Croatia will lock horns in Moscow.
England’s start was emphatic, as they swiftly put Croatia on the back foot through a driving Dele Alli run, which Luka Modric had to stop on the edge of the area by fouling the Tottenham star.
England got the first goal of the game early on, when Trippier scored a sublime freekick.
Croatia did their confidence little good in the 22nd minute when Danijel Subasic’s poor kick went straight to Raheem Sterling, who found Harry Kane, but he ultimately shot wide after straying offside.
Croatia continued to grow in the game as Perisic scored an acrobatic kick to restore parity in the 68th minute.
England managed to hang on to force an extra 30 minutes and initially looked the more threatening of the two teams once again in the additional period.
The game headed into extra time, with Mario Mandzukic scoring the winner in the 109th minute, ending England’s dreams for another four years and setting up a final with France on Sunday, as Zlatko Dalic’s men move another step closer to a first World Cup title.
