England lost 2-1 to Croatia in the semi-finals of the World Cup in Russia having led at half-time through Kieran Trippier’s goal.

The Spurs right-back’s sublime free kick in the opening minutes gave Gareth Southgate’s Three Lions side the perfect start at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow on Wednesday night.

Ivan Perišić equalised for the Croatians in the second half, before Mario Mandžukić won it in extra time to set up a final against France on Sunday and send England home.

After another heartbreaking exit, these were best jokes after Croatia 2-1 England:

Football told you he was coming home, then stayed for another pint. Then 3. Then got chicken on the way home.
He's gonna crash at Pete's, coz it's easier. Actually, thinking about it, wouldn't it be better if you both had a bit more space? Football lives with Pete now. #ENGCRO

I'm not normally bothered about football but it's quite exhilarating hearing all your neighbours shout "Oh shit!" at the exact same moment. #ENGCRO
