England fell 2-3 to Croatia at home in Wembley, failing to secure the point needed for qualify for the European Championships next year.
A 10-man Russia advanced to the competition, eeking out 1-nil victory over Andorra.
England fell behind quickly, allowing 2 goals in the first half. A penalty conversion by Frank Lampard and a volley by Peter Crouch off a pass from David Beckham drew the Three Lions level, but only 12 minutes later Croatia claimed the lead for good.
