New Delhi: As Croatia beat England on Wednesday, football fans are eagerly waiting to watch the 2018 World Cup final between Croatia and France to be held at the Luzhniki Stadium in Russia’s Moscow on Sunday at 8.30 pm (IST).
France were the first to reach the tournament finale after overcoming Belgium in Tuesday’s semi-final. Samuel Umtiti’s goal settled the tie, but Kylian Mbappe again starred on the biggest stage to guide Les Bleus to Moscow.
Meanwhile, Croatia reached the 21st World Cup final for the first time after an extra-time goal by Mario Mandzukic gave them a 2-1 win over England in their semi-final on Wednesday.
For England and Belgium, it’s Saturday’s third-place place-off.
While, we are still waiting for the final to take place, here are some of the funniest and heartbreaking tweets after Croatia beat England.

Reasons #England failed to progress to #WorldCupFinal – Jeff’s wife in #Stoke washed his lucky three lions T-shirt, Tracey in #Croydon didn’t sit in her usual ‘match’ seat at the local due to leak in ceiling and Martin in #Lincoln had his haircut!

We're still feeling a bit emotional that England won't be playing in the #WorldCupFinal on Sunday. So we're going to stare at this picture of our beautiful search and rescue dogs for the rest of the afternoon to cheer ourselves up! Looking good @supersid54! pic.twitter.com/FOzwNiFk5G
