Alli has not quite hit full gear in the World Cup campaign, but has been vital to the England side nonetheless and did score a header in the quarter finals against Sweden.

England could not hold on to a fifth-minute lead following a Kieran Trippier free-kick, and instead of playing France in the final in Moscow will now come up against Belgium in St Petersburg in the match for third place.

"We've proved to ourselves that is possible and we've proved to our country that is possible".

Croatia looked vulnerable from set-pieces against Russian Federation, conceding the equaliser in extra-time via a set-play, so this is an area England can exploit. We can be proud and we'll be back.

Jubilant Croatian fans honked their auto 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.

Southgate said: "At the moment we all feel the pain of the defeat".

"Did we expect to be in this position?" But when you've got to this point and played as well as we have. you want to take these opportunities in life.

"The honest thing is it's not a game any team wants to play in", manager Gareth Southgate said.

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. I think over the next few days it will be the time to reflect on that.

In 1990, three years before Kane was born, England also fell short at the semifinal stage - on penalties against West Germany. "We started slowly today but we showed our character and again came from a goal behind just like we did in the previous knockout rounds". "There was a period of the game in the second half where we didn't have that controlled possession, and the game became too end to end with us not building in the way we have been. We will be back stronger". He's captained the team brilliantly throughout this tournament.

"Then they asked me if I was OK".
