    An impressive display in the end from Croatia to wrestle the game away from England. It wasn't always pretty, but you have to admire their fighting spirit. They've played three consecutive games with extra time, and prevailed each time - today without penalties.

    They've got grit and resilience in abundance, which has earned them a final spot against France on Sunday.
