  • England celebrates at the final whistle following victory during the 2018 FIFA World Cup match between Sweden and England

"Many of these players have come of age and I couldn't be prouder of them".

Politicians also added their praise, with Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn tweeting: "A heartbreaking way to go out but won't forget what a great tournament it's been for England".

Jubilant Croatian fans honked their vehicle horns and let off fireworks while England fans sobbed and looked to the future with confidence after Mario Mandzukic's extra-time victor took Croatia to its first World Cup final.

"I was in Nice to watch us lose too Iceland, I was in Kiev to lose against Italy".

Some may see this as a negative, but England's set-piece prowess is only a good thing, as they look a threat at every corner and free-kick that they get.

A $100 bet on England would net you a $200 profit if they were to win in regulation, but keep in mind that England just played an extra 30 minutes and has a day's less rest.

That is exactly what has happened. What more could we ask for?

Arsenal boss Emery not planning to seek Wenger advice
Emery also downplayed reports that he's interested in reuniting with midfielder Steven N'Zonzi, who played under him at Sevilla. Guendouzi, a France U20 worldwide , said that Arsenal is his dream club, one that he wanted to play for since childhood.

But he has done a magnificent job.

The Three Lions' failure to reach their first World Cup final in 52 years was greeted with desolation in the stadium in Moscow.

When I talk about what has changed for England, so much of it comes down to Gareth and his meticulous planning.

Having pounced on Ivan Perisic's header through, the Juventus striker expertly drilled the ball past Jordan Pickford in the England goal before wheeling away in celebration. Several Croatian players appeared concerned for his safety and once his well-being had been established, defender Domagoj Vida planted a kiss on his forehead before running back onto the pitch.

"But we do it for ourselves as well".

"Three weeks ago, there wasn't even a connection with the England football team".

Then he will start thinking about how he is going to take this team forward, into the 2020 European Championship, and how he can continue their improvement.

Alan Shearer was speaking to BBC Sport's Chris Bevan in Moscow.
