England won 2-1 against Croatia in their final group game of the Nations League at Wembley on Sunday.

The hosts are in the draw for the semi-finals of the competition after topping League A Group 4 by a solitary point.

Two late goals from Jesse Lingard and Harry Kane completed a turnaround for England after Andrej Kramarić put the visitors in front.

Croatia are relegated despite knocking England out of the World Cup at the semi-final stage in Russia last summer.

These were the best jokes after England 2-1 Croatia:

No real idea what that goal means or what this tournament really is, but am celebrating like we've won the World Cup. #ENGCRO

If you’d told me this time last year that England would reach the semi-finals of the UEFA Nations League… I would have said to you “the semi-finals of the what now?”. #ENGCRO

If only Croatia had the "best defender in the world" to stop Harry Kane there.

Liverpool’s throw-in coach has done more than Eric Dier for England this afternoon.

The Europa Nations League seems to consist of England winning something, Germany getting relegated and Three Lions blaring out in victory at Wembley.

I like it. #ENGCRO

You might have won a World Cup semi final against us, but nobody beats England in the final match of the inaugural nations league, league A group 4 #ENGCRO

The biggest risk to England winning the World Cup now is that the Government fuck it up so badly that we’re no longer actually a country by the time the tournament starts.

*looks around nervously* I really really like the UEFA Nations League. It's basically a professional version of those schoolyard kickabouts where you keep score all term. #ENGCRO
