A large group of England fans believe Croatia should be banned from the World Cup. Mario Mandzukic’s extra-time goal broke English hearts to send Gareth Southgate’s side packing in the semi-finals.The Three Lions were just 45 minutes away from their first final since 1966 when Kieran Trippier’s free-kick put England ahead. And supporters are clinging onto false hope by trying to suggest Croatia should be booted out of the competition and here’s why.TV cameras appeared to show Ante Rebic receiving two yellow cards without being given his marching orders. The Croatia forward was certainly booked in the 48th minute but supporters questioned why he was still on the pitch when the ref brandished another in extra-time.But it was in fact Mandzukic who was booked, with television footage failing to show the incident clearly. Former ref Graham Poll made the famous error at the 2006 World Cup when he booked Josip Simunic three times.Another controversial incident was the decision to allow Domagoj Vida to play. Just days before a video emerged of the defender shouting “Glory to Ukraine”. There were calls for him to be banned from Fifa but he was cleared and produced a commanding display in defence.And finally fans were left furious with the official for failing to send off Dejan Lovren. The Liverpool man failed to receive a caution despite a number of rash tackles while viewers also thought Ivan Perisic should have been banned for his high boot for the equaliser.Photo Credit: Getty
