Jamie Redknapp delivered a criticism of Tottenham ace Dele Alli for his England display in the World Cup.

Some may see this as a negative, but England's set-piece prowess is only a good thing, as they look a threat at every corner and free-kick that they get.

"Perisic and Mandzukic heroes - Miraculous Croatia shocks England and makes it to the World Cup final for first time in history!" said the Tportal website.

They were so close, yet, so far.

However, given Croatia's impressive scoring record, it's no surprise England failed to cling on to their advantage.

"We are enjoying the journey", he said.

"We are going to play England in the League of Nations (in October) and we don´t have a proper stadium to play that game".

England crashed out of the World Cup after a 2-1 defeat to Croatia after extra time. What more could we ask for?

Along the way to the final, Croatia have beaten Argentina, Nigeria and Iceland, but have needed extra-time and penalties to see off both Denmark and Russian Federation.

But given how these squads have played, they are more than deserving of the opportunity at hand. Fernandinho scored the 11th own goal of the 2018 World Cup , which is a tournament record.

Luka Modric has been inspirational throughout their run, yet there were numerous outstanding performances at the Luzhniki Stadium as Croatia recovered from a shaky opening half hour.

So to those who had Croatia winning, congrats.

He said: 'I was born for Italia 90 but I was only just seven and cannot remember watching the game but I can imagine that I would of sat and watched it with my Dad that's for sure.

The World Cup in Russian Federation has thrown up some stunning twists, turns and shocks, so it's perhaps fitting that its final game will feature the smallest nation to appear in the last stage of the tournament since 1950.

"No way will they have such an easy route next time".

Given they arrived in Russian Federation as rank outsiders, however, Southgate was invited to detail the positives from a campaign that appears to have repaired the strained relationship between England and its team.

Southgate said he was unsure if that was the case, but that there was no questioning what the Tottenham striker had brought to the team both on and off the pitch in Russian Federation.
