Fans thank England for 'making nation dream'

Nutmegging Modric snubbed by Welbeck Dele Alli reflects on path to Moscow

"Cro no": A slightly weird pun adorns the Star's back page alongside an image of Southgate consoling Pickford after England's "extra-time agony".

"What's shocked me most about this is how England fans are so outnumbered", said Matt Hardwick, 42, who said he had paid 1,700 pounds ($2,247.23) for his ticket to the game.

"It's a young team, the majority of the players will play in the next World Cup with more experience at club level", the Portuguese boss told RT.

"We were like lions out there tonight and we will be the same in the final", he said.

A man who worked for the England football team was given an individual handwritten letter by Gareth Southgate before the World Cup.

Researchers have mined more than 12 million words of global media coverage - including newspaper articles and blogs - over the last month to discover the words associated with each team.

Arsenal announce the capture of French youngster
He has been handed the number 11 shirt for the 2018/19 campaign and will join up with the squad in early August. The 19-year-old has joined the Gunners just a day after Uruguay global Lucas Torreira signed for £25m.

England will play Belgium in the third-place match on Saturday, so there's still a chance that Southgate and the team won't walk away totally empty-handed.

F1 driver Hamilton wrote on Twitter that the team had done England proud, showing "real grit and determination".

Kyle Walker reacts at the final whistle: the England players were "absolutely gutted", he said. "For them to still be singing when we're seeing friends and families, chanting our names and singing the manager's name, is completely different".

"It was a tough game, a 50-50 game, I'm sure we'll look back at stuff we could have done better but we worked as hard as we could".

"We salute you": It's pretty much a love letter from the Mail's sport section to Southgate and his team.

This time around, we could see the stars play, or we could see some more reserves to get some guys some minutes, and that makes picking here hard. "It's unlucky we couldn't bring it home for them, but hopefully there's time in the future". Thanks for all your support'. The governing body did not provide further details.
