England's Kane misses out on golden shot at World Cup title

England's Kane misses out on golden shot at World Cup title

"They know we've got beaten but we've come so far".

Lovren, though, does not think fatigue will prove a problem against England.

England captain Harry Kane can do a lot more than just score goals, says Brazilian icon Martra.

England were knocked out of the World Cup by Mario Mandzukic's extra-time goal, but it could have been a far different story had Kane scored in the 30th minute.

Dalic admitted that trying to outdo the achievement of that great generation was a driving force for his team, skippered by the brilliant Luka Modric.

"We feel proud to make the fans proud because that's what we wanted to do when we set out", Kane said.

"It's incredible to meet any heroes from '66 and it gives you so much inspiration, obviously it's been a long time since England have done well in a major tournament", he said.

England's opponents Croatia have played two consecutive matches which have gone to extra time and penalties, and many people expect them to tire earlier than England. "Probably nobody would go to work!"

Quoted by the Mirror ahead of Wednesday's game, Lovren said: "He's one of the best strikers in the Premier League".

"If we'd got that goal before half-time or in the first 15 minutes of the second half you might have the opportunity to win the game".

Lovren was not impressed when he was reminded of that day by an English reporter.

'That defeat is completely irrelevant, ' he said.

"Why didn't you ask me about when I played well?" You're nitpicking at my poor performances.

Captain Harry Kane is leading England's unexpected bid for glory, and is hoping to inspire the next generation of footballers by going all the way in Russian Federation.

The former Arsenal youth academy player has given the Gunners something to regret with the decision to release him - Today, Harry Kane is arguably one of the best strikers in the world, if not the best.
