Kieran Trippier Tears Rolled Down When He Realises World Cup Dream Is Over
Kieran Trippier got emotional when he realised that England’s World Cup dream was over. The spurs right-back was one of England’s best players throughout the tournament and put the Three Lions ahead in the nation’s first World Cup semi-final for 28 years with a stunning free-kick five minutes in against Croatia.
As the England dominated the game for an hour, they should have been two or three goals to the good. However, Zlatko Dalić’s side equalised in the 68th minute through Ivan Perisic and bossed the game from then on, before Juventus striker Mario Mandzukic popped up with the winner in the second half of extra time to send Croatia into their first ever World Cup final.
