Heartbreak on the horizon: Mandzukic fires in Croatia's second

BeSoccer by BeSoccer @besoccer_com - 0 2,755

Croatia take the lead in the second half of extra time courtesy of a Mandzukic goal.

It looked likely to happen, but nobody wanted it to.

After consistent pressure from Croatia, England were unable to keep them out any longer.

England failed to clear the ball down the left hand side.

Goalscorer Perisic  beat Trippier to the ball and headed the ball forward inside the box.

Mandzukic met the dropping ball, slotting a fierce, low shot across Pickford and into the bottom right.

England's World Cup final hopes are on the verge of being over.
