Take away one set piece goal and Croatia dominated this game! I don't think England had more than 2-3 real shots on goal that were not corner kicks or set pieces. Give Croatia credit, they came out hard and tried to outmuscle England. They got in their face and tried to intimidate them - and it worked!

This game was won in the midfield. Croatia had one, England did not!
Dejan Lovren (6)
Played with a chip on his shoulder in this one and shut down Kane!
May have the worst haircut at the World Cup, but I am starting to like his game!
Ivan Perisic (44)
Beautiful goal! He gave England problems the whole game!
