Kane says England defeat will hurt for a long time

Kane says England defeat will hurt for a long time

"A lot of us weren't even born when that was happening", said the 24-year-old Kane.

Croatia defender Dejan Lovren believes his exhausted team are ready to seize the opportunity of a lifetime when they face England in the World Cup semi-finals in Moscow today.

"There's a lot we could have done better, but they played well and they made it hard for us". "We worked so hard, the fans were unbelievable, it was a tough game, a 50-50 game, when we look back we will think there's stuff we could have done better".

Croatia will now play France in Sunday's final and for England goalkeeper Jordan Pickford it was a case of what might have been. We got further than anyone else thought we would have, so we've just got to learn from it and take what we can.

'It's hard to say (what went wrong). "Maybe we went ahead too early, we needed that next goal to kill off the tie and we had some good chances but never put them away".

The centre-back also dismissed the notion Croatia are at a disadvantage because they have had to play 120 minutes twice in a week and predicted a "difficult and intriguing match for both teams". There's a lot we could have done better.

Kane is now leading the race for the tournament's Golden Boot with six goals, while Lovren has played in all five of Croatia's games in their run to the final four - playing the full 90 minutes in four of those games.

"We've shown pride and passion". It's a great foundation we've built over the last few years with the gaffer. Look at the fans there tonight, there was a lump in the throat and the hairs on my neck stood up watching the fans at the end.
