England have been labelled chokers by former World Cup star Gary Lineker after their heartbreaking semi final loss to Croatia at the FIFA World Cup.

The Three Lions took the lead early through a stunning free kick by Kieran Trippier but conceded the game-winning goal with just five minutes remaining in extra time to lose 2-1.

After the loss, Lineker took to his personal Twitter account to air out his frustrations, saying the side "utterly choked".

Neymar’s antics have been one of the more polarising stories of the World Cup , with the Paris Saint Germain star having gained notoriety for his ‘flopping’ during games. Speaking on the Today Show, Foster explained how the 25-year-old’s reputation cost him and his country in their loss to Belgium.


However, while admitting that the young English side did choke, Lineker was full of praise for Gareth Southgate's squad, which included 18 World Cup debutants.

"It's a huge step forward and they'll only get better in the future," he tweeted.

"They can hold their heads high, they did our country proud."

Lineker appeared in two World Cups for England, in 1986 and 1990, scoring 10 goals in just 12 appearances and his 48 international goals ranks just one behind both Wayne Rooney and Sir Bobby Charlton's English all-time goal-scoring record.
