  • England's forward Harry Kane applauds at the end of their 2018 World Cup quarter-final match against Sweden at the Samara Arena in Samara

BRIAN STRAUS: You've brought this up a couple times and obviously I'm sure we'll delve into it in the next few days but this [Croatia] team, this program, this federation is total chaos.

"Did we feel we would be in this position?" Maybe 14 but I think 13. But Croatia came alive in the second half, first scoring on a header in the 68th minute by Ivan Perisic to level the match and take the game to extra time.

'So, the dressing room and all of the staff is [in] a very hard place at the moment.

"It hurts, I don't know what else to say, it hurts", Kane said after the match.

Rangers manager Gerrard - who featured in seven major tournaments for England but never went further than the quarter-finals - said: "I've been so pleased to watch the players perform". Southgate has done well to mask his team's flaws and give them a renewed sense of confidence and identity, but the problems that cost them against Croatia were the same that nearly handed victory to Colombia in the round of 16. They've done everything wrong and I wrote an article at some point in the past month, days don't matter anymore about teams that are successful at World Cups and teams that win World Cups and look to copy them and look at them as blueprints going forward.

"There weren't clear changes that we thought could change it".

The event was backed by the Mayor of London Sadiq Khan, who said: "World Cup fever has gripped London and the rest of the nation and we have all been swept away by the fantastic exploits of Gareth Southgate's team".

Obviously it seems like I've always tried too hard. "I feel bad for Ryan but I guess it was my time". "These things happen. However, a second monstrous putt from Knox put the pressure back on Fox to hole out to get it to a second playoff hole.

'We're still one of only three teams ever to get to a semi-final, and I think for all of the players and staff they have got to be proud of that.

"Coach Zlatko Dalić has done a wonderful job, all the players are united and they're playing well".

Phil Foden, the Manchester City teenager, is highly regarded and a potential star of Euro 2020, but he has to play for his club before he can think of representing his country.

"My biggest question before the tournament was about who was going to be the goalkeeper and whether they would be good enough".

But he lamented England's failure to take full advantage of what appeared an unusually easy route to the final, avoiding most of the heavyweight teams in Russian Federation.

"It's important to keep the belief because the belief is strong in our team".
