There was a mixture of pride and disappointment last night as England were defeated in their first World Cup semi-final in 28 years. 

Gareth Southgate's men went down 2-1 to Croatia after extra-time of their semi-final in Moscow. 

England's captain Harry Kane says it'll "hurt for a while".

But how are fans in Yorkshire feeling this morning? Stray FM's been speaking to visitors at The Great Yorkshire Show to find out.
