'Gutted' Kane pays tribute to 'amazing' England support

Harry Kane a young England captain in training

When Kane got his best chance in the 30th minute against Croatia, his first shot was saved by goalkeeper Danijel Subasic. The ball rebounded nearly out of play, then sat up for Kane to take another shot from less than two yards at a tight angle. And Croatia would never let England get so close again.

England football team's dream run in the FIFA World Cup 2018 came to an end when they suffered a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Croatia in the semi-final on Wednesday.

Kane, who scored six goals in Russian Federation to equal Gary Lineker's record for England strikes at a single World Cup, struggled as Gareth Southgate's side slipped to a 2-1 extra-time defeat at the Luzhniki Stadium that ended their hopes of ending over 50 years of hurt.

It meant another World Cup semifinal heartbreaker for England, only this time the game was under control before it was lost. That team also exceeded expectations and won the adulation of fans at home with a beloved center forward who played for Tottenham.

Back then, a powerful West Germany team edged England in a penalty shootout after a 1-1 draw, and lifted the trophy days later.

That hasn't been the case this year, and since England's 2-0 win over Sweden on Saturday, the song has surged in popularity. The team needed Kane to use his head in stoppage time to get the victor.

The Duke of Cambridge shared a personal message on Kensington Palace's official Twitter page encouraging Gareth Southgate and his team of Lions to "hold [their] heads high".

Ian Wright Risks Knuckle Sandwich In On-Air Row With Roy Keane
Manchester United legend Roy Keane and Arsenal icon Ian Wright clashed after England's World Cup semifinal defeat to Croatia . Keane suggested that England's "It's Coming Home" banter meant everyone had got a little carried away before playing Croatia.

"We created some good chances, being 1-0 up".

"I'm sure we lacked in some areas, there are things we could've done better".

For Kane, who has scored 20 or more Premier League goals four seasons running, it was not until after the 2014 World Cup that he established himself at the top level.

"We're looking forward to finishing strong and whatever happens we can say we're proud of each other", said Kane.

Both Harry and Katie, who are already proud parents to 18-month-old Ivy, became engaged past year while on holiday in the Bahamas.
