A Positive World Cup Exit

Last night saw England crash out of the World Cup, beaten 2-1 by Croatia in extra time. The first semi-final we reached in 28 years and our first shot at reaching a World Cup final since 1966, England had gone from assuming we would have an early exit… to well and truly getting our hopes…
