Former Croatia Player & Manager Slaven Bilic Speaks about the 2018 FIFA WORLD CUP Semi Final match between England 1-2 Croatia.

England’s bid to reach a first World Cup final since 1966 came to an agonising end as they lost in extra time to Croatia in Moscow.

Juventus striker Mario Mandzukic scored the winning goal in the 109th minute of the semi-final, slotting in from Ivan Perisic’s flick-on into the area.

Gareth Southgate’s side – playing England’s first semi-final since they were beaten on a penalties by West Germany at Italia 90 – were given the perfect start through Kieran Trippier’s 20-yard free-kick after only five minutes, but Perisic’s 68th-minute equaliser sent the match into extra time.
