Chants of "It's coming home" rocked England as the side marched into on Wednesday in the semi-finals following a solid show against Sweden. The shock loss to Croatia has left England fans dismayed. But, Twitter is in splits after the Three Lions were kicked out of the tournament.
Croatia beat England 2-1 after goals from Mandzukic and Perisic sent Croatia to their first final, where they will meet France on Sunday.
England started the game on a high when Kieran Trippier scored from a free kick just outside the box within five minutes. The first half of the game gave England's fans plenty of reasons to cheer, but the second half proved a drastic u-turn with a Ivan Perisic goal sending the game into extra time. Mario Mandzukic then scored in the 109th minute, crushing England's hopes.
Great to see England finally achieve its dream of leaving Europe.#CROENG— John Johnsonson (@JohnJohnsonson) July 12, 2018
