England dream of qualifying to the world cup finals got shattered by team Croatia.
England scored an earlier goal with a free kick, but failed to champion on that to the end of the game.
Mandzukic ran and ran and ran until he had almost nothing left.
And then there was one more chance, early in the second period of extra time. A ball nodded back in, a tiny gap behind the England defense, and Mandzukic summoned whatever he had left and went for it. The ball fell, Mandzukic beat his man to it and slammed it under Jordan Pickford.
Just like that, Croatia was headed to its first World Cup final, staggering off as 2-1 victors against a young and game England team that rode destiny as far as it would take it but fell on step short of its goal.
On Saturday, England will face Belgium on the 3rd and 4th place of the 2018 FIFA World Cup whiles on Sunday, Croatia faces France to battle on who wins the ultimate.
