Gareth Southgate urges England stars to seize the moment after World Cup

Federation Internationale de Football Association is investigating reports that England fans chanted "no surrender" during their World Cup semi-final defeat by Croatia. I follow all the players in all leagues.

Little Harry held his head in his hands as he stood in front of the TV in sheer shock, when it was revealed Gareth Southgate's team wouldn't be making it into the final.

Fans stationed behind the goal roared as a young boy wearing the Peresic name ran a scintillating line from nearly halfway to score in a packed away net.

Ultimately we were not good enough to win it, but we can accept that - as a team, they still far exceeded all of our expectations, and I would congratulate them for that.

Kieran Trippier returned to England training on Friday morning after recovering from a groin problem ahead of Saturday's World Cup third-place play-off against Belgium.

'Keep doing it and I hope this World Cup brings you unforgettable personal memories.

"We were planning to leave, but now we have to stay until Monday", said Sinisa Pavlek, a Croatian living in Germany as he emerged from the stadium with a broad smile on his face.

The game turned in overtime on two plays - one on which a defender was alert, the other on which a defender was caught napping.

Being an Everton fan if big Sam had been the manager of @England we would not have got out the group stages! We weathered a lot of storms out there. It's great that they may have had a feeling that playing for England is always misery, regret, recrimination and they have seen that it can be fun, it can be enjoyable.

The best team won on Wednesday, I don't think anyone can really argue with that.

"I'm sure the players will be disappointed not to have reached the final, but there is so much to be hopeful about for the future".

There is no doubt it has helped England's players see what is possible, too, and what they can now achieve with the emergence of talent from their all-conquering junior sides. Following the match he was given an incredible reception by fans, and many heartfelt thank-you's on social media.
