Gareth Southgate says England shed is 'a hard place'

Harry Maguire is going out with Fern Hawkins

Football fans in Reading had a traumatic evening as they went through all the emotions as England crashed out of the World Cup.

Rising high at the back post to meet another precise free kick from Kieran Trippier, Kane misconnected and the ball bounced wide of the goal.

Had Kane added to his six goals in Russian Federation with either of his back-to-back chances in the first half against Croatia on Wednesday, when England was dominating and led 1-0, he could yet be lifting the trophy on Sunday.

The Croats, who play France on Sunday, fought back to beat England 2-1 after extra time, securing a first World Cup final appearance. We have two days to prepare. We will want to give a performance of huge pride. "You've made us smile, made us proud, made us believe, every one of you a hero".

"Did we expect to be in this position?" But I wonder if we are going to get the game we wanted during the group stage of England's stars against Belgium's stars. "But once you're here and played as well as we did, you want to take those opportunities in life".

China's Foreign Ministry later confirmed her departure , saying she left the country "by her own free will" for medical treatment. She took a Finnair flight from Beijing to Berlin at 11:00 local time (03:00 GMT) on Tuesday, a friend, Ye Du, told news agencies.

"The dressing-room is a really hard place at the moment".

"They just kept coming towards me and they fell on me!" There will in time be positives to take, it's very hard now to put that into context, it's a bit too soon, really, because I think you have to suffer the result a little bit. There are a lot of things that have been hugely positive for us.

The England boss was also asked if the team's leading scorer Harry Kane had exhausted as the tournament progressed and was perhaps missing his cutting edge in the semifinals.

"We had hoped [for this] and we believed in our team, but the feeling when we finally entered the finals can not be compared to anything", said Croatia fan Ivan Kecerin.

"I'd need to look back again at it".

"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. "I can't ask more of him as a captain or as a man over the last three weeks".
