Despite a valiant effort, the team will come home without the Jules Rimet trophy after losing the semi final 2-1 to Croatia.

Only two years ago, Maguire was following England as a spectator at Euro 2016, and numerous friends who were with him then have been back in the stands to follow him this time around.

Mia Šetula, a Croatian student at Bournemouth University, admitted she will be cheering for England's opponents tonight. Their team is well balanced because they have players with speed, tireless fighters in the middle of the park - the likes of N'Golo Kante who doesn't get enough recognition, as he's the pillar of that team.

Southgate is keen to remind people that England's squad was the least experienced in Russian Federation.

Bitter disappointment was mixed with pride for England fans who witnessed the Three Lions' lose their first World Cup semi-final in decades.

"England we're proud of you, that's all I've got to say". "Everyone was nervous, but when they got a second goal, everyone took so much confidence, everyone was up in the air, the club was full, there was a great atmostphere".

"We had a little less composure with the ball in the second half, and maybe that was a outcome of being ahead with the least experienced team in the finals, with an opportunity to get to a World Cup final".

"We worked as hard as we could.it hurts, it hurts a lot and it will hurt for a long time".

"This is a hugely different journey from two years ago, but to become a winning team, there are hurdles we have to overcome".

"Heroes" There's plenty of sympathy in defeat from The Mirror, which offsets the image of Jamie Vardy and Dele Alli crouched on the turf at the final whistle with the message, "We're proud of you all". "We will try to make sure that we put everything on our side".

"Now we have a new benchmark, a new level of expectation, a new scenario".
