The duke said: "A new generation is enjoying the magic of this World Cup run".

Those two moments of excellence helped Croatia reach its first World Cup final following a 2-1 win over England on Wednesday, setting up a title match against France.

Had Kane added to his six goals in Russian Federation with either of his back-to-back chances in the first half against Croatia on Wednesday, when England was dominating and led 1-0, he could yet be lifting the trophy on Sunday. "We haven't said our last word, there is still one more game to go".

At that stage the victory was still up in the air, and Schofield tweeted: "What will we do @thismorning".

"It was a long time ago, so not too many of us can remember that far back", said midfielder Jordan Henderson, born in 1990.

"This shows character. This is what makes me proud and glad".

Asked what is was all about, a slightly bemused Southgate said: "That's exactly what I asked our fitness coach a well, 'What is that all about?'. I'm so emotional right now".

Pockets within the Hyde Park crowd continued to clap and chant but the disappointment was obvious with some people with hands on their heads, tears in their eyes and too upset to talk.

"Fair enough they are a young team but they needed to turn up tonight".

"I don't think we've done bad at all. And they're just thinking, "we'll get behind these lads". "It's more than I ever expected, to be honest, so it's pretty good".

John Stones hit the headlines for his two goals in England's 6-1 trouncing of Panama in the group stages of the 2018 World Cup, but the Manchester City defender has the chance to show off his defensive attributes again this evening when the Three Lions face Croatia, with the victor earning the right to face France in Sunday's final.
