Twitter reacts to Croatia stunningly reaching World Cup finals
Croatia has done it.
The European nation reached the finals of the World Cup with a 2-1 win over England in extra time in Russia on Wednesday. They have reached the finals for the first time in the nation’s history, and they did so by becoming the first country ever to win three straight games in extra time.
England was favored to win the game, and much of the reactions centered on them losing.
Welp it's not coming home…RIP England

Frustrating because England were so well-positioned at halftime and then everything Southgate did from that point on just didn't make an ounce of sense. Playing conservatively, yanking Sterling off, not reinforcing the midfield
