Croatia booked their place in the final of World Cup for the first time in their history after beating England 2-1 in the semi-final. 

England had taken the lead in the fifth minute through a stunning free-kick from Kieran Trippier. For most parts of the match, it seemed the Three Lions would be heading for their second-ever final. 

But in the 68th minute, Ivan Perisic equalized for Croatia. From that moment on, it seemed there will only be one winner. After the match headed into extra time, Mario Mandzukic scored the winner after the England defense went to sleep.
