Tonight we have been sharing the celebrations from England’s early goal and the misery of the second half as Croatia equalised.

Now we face another agonising 30-minute wait to see if England can score another and secure their place in Sunday’s World Cup final.

We could see England facing another round of penalties if the score line remains unchanged.

Should we get through, it will be the first time since 1966 that we have reached the final.

France are already through to the final having beaten Belgium in the first semi-final last night.

The loser from tonight’s match will play Belgium in the third-place play-off game on Saturday - a game no-one wants to play.
