Croatia's monumental journey to the FIFA World Cup 2018 finals

  • Croatia manager Zlatko Dalic

He used the example of the feel-good aspect of Germany's performance at the 2006 finals, where the hosts - with a young team like the current England crop - won over a nation despite losing to Italy in the semi-finals.

As a result, the relationship between England's players and supporters has softened.

Stephen Fry was among those to take to Twitter after the match, and his message reflected the thoughts of many.

Asked if Southgate was in line for a knighthood, the PM's spokeswoman said: "In terms of honours, and things like that, there is an independent robust process for how that system works, so I can't speculate about that".

The draw at 90 minutes led to a heated extra time period with during which England's Dele Alli and Croatia's Ivan Rakitic almost came to blows.

"We, as a team, have made incredible progress and probably got to a stage where at the start of the tournament we would have considered a success".

England will now play against Belgium in the third-place match.

"When you get to this stage of the competition, the margins are fine. they've taken two of their (chances) and we weren't able to respond".

"If we want to play for England we have to deal with expectation", Southgate added. I can see what we have achieved, albeit when you are so close you look back at what we might have done. Perhaps we had played as well as we could have done. "We'll finish as one of the top four teams in the world but we're not ranked one of the top four". "Most of the people I know have gone back home. It would be nice to see it now", one England fan said.

"I think every Belgian fan deserves that winning feeling at the end of this tournament".

Wembley will host several matches - including the semi-finals and final - as Euro 2020 takes place across various European cities, and Southgate said: "We nearly have a home tournament, it's going to be brilliant". Mario Mandzukic scored a poacher's goal in the 109th minute, latching onto Perišić's flick to put Croatia ahead and into their first ever World Cup final.

Mr Jex has been in Russian Federation for a week, visiting the sites and scenes of the country when not occupied by the World Cup.
