He added: "This is something we will never forget, it's historical. Now I want to go and see what's going on in Russian Federation", said one fan, Michael Roberts, 27, as he waited for his flight. But many more brought out the fun of being a soccer fan with a slew of hilarious memes and jokes poking fun at England.
Football was all set to come home. "We deserved to be in that final after such an awesome effort", Croatia midfielder Ivan Rakitic said.
England supporters gathered in Hyde Park to watch the World Cup semifinal threw an impressive amount of beer into the air while celebrating their team's goal against Croatia.
Croatia ended England's fairytale run at the World Cup with a 2-1 win at Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow on Wednesday (Thursday NZT).
With such a modest population, they are the smallest country to get to a World Cup final since Uruguay back in 1950, and in the modern game it is a staggering achievement.
Croatia came from behind to win 2-1 in the semi-final clash in Moscow, with Mario Mandzukic claiming the victor in the 109th minute after Ivan Perisic had earlier cancelled out Kieran Trippier's free-kick opener. Mario Mandzukic scored a poacher's goal in the 109th minute, latching onto Perišić's flick to put Croatia ahead and into their first ever World Cup final. "I reckon there's a lot we could've done better".
France's own supremely talented young squad will now aim to make amends for defeat on home soil to Portugal two years ago in Sunday's showpiece.
Very early on, oddsmakers had the French as the favorites in Sunday's World Cup final.
The Sun reacted to the loss with "You did us proud".
"We've shown pride and passion". Ivan Perisic became more determined, Luca Modric dictated the tempo in midfield, and while Raheem Sterling was getting the better of Dejan Lovren, the Croatian defence had enough presence to prevent the England front-line from getting many shots away.
Phillip Schofield praised the team for what they had achieved and for uniting people.
"We know their set-pieces are risky, they have scored seven times from them, but we have no reason to be nervous, we are relieved of any pressure and are here to enjoy ourselves", he said.
