The supporters were in dreamland when Kieran Trippier curled a David Beckham-esque free kick into the top corner in the fifth minute.

The French topped Belgium 1-0 in their semifinal matchup on Tuesday to advance to the final and have a shot at winning their second World Cup final (they took the title in 1998).

The draw at 90 minutes led to a heated extra time period with during which England's Dele Alli and Croatia's Ivan Rakitic almost came to blows.

In the moment that every England fan dreads, Pickford picked the right spot and saved the penalty.

Around 7,000 England fans had managed to get hold of tickets through official channels, with 2,180 doing so via the England Supporters Travel Club tickets and the rest in Federation Internationale de Football Association sales.

The official attendance was given as 78,011.

"The way we've been received here has been fantastic", Southgate said at a pre-match press conference at Luzhniki Stadium.

Parv Moondi, 49, from Norwich, was heading out of the Luzhniki and back to central Moscow. "I've been saying that for 10 years; it's unfair", said Van Gaal ahead of the third-place clash against Brazil, who was about to take over as head coach of Manchester United.
