Croatia coach Bilic: England performance should be no surprise

Croatia boss Slaven Bilic insists England's stunning performance last night was no surprise to him.

Bilic said: "I have seen the incident three or four times on television and it does not look like elbowing to me. Joe Cole had blood on his face and I think this influenced the referee's decision to send Kovac off.

"But it is apparent from replays that what happened was not deliberate."
