Croatia ended England's dream after hard-fought comeback win in semifinals. Young Lions took the lead in the first half after superbly taken free-kick by Kieran Tripper and later had chances to insure their lead but Harry Kane and Jesse Lingard failed to make a difference. In the second half Croatia looked way more involved into their game as Luka Modric presence became really huge. On 68th minute Ivan Perisic netted fully deserved equalizer after perfect cross from Sime Vrsaljko. In the extra-time Zlatko Dalic’s side kept of piling on pressure and Mario Mandzukic scored a winning goal on 109th minute. Final score – 2:1.
