- Belgium were beaten by France in their semi-final on Tuesday, the only game in which they failed to score in Russian Federation, where their 14 goals still make them the top-scoring side.

Despite a best-ever tournament return, though, the Belgians are likely to be long haunted by a nagging sense they might have done so much better.

Fans were daring to dream of a possible place in the final when Kieran Trippier curled in a sumptuous free-kick after just five minutes in Wednesday's semi-final against Croatia.

Ashworth has insisted the aim is for the side to replicate this summer's progress to the final-four when England hosts the semi-finals and final of Euro 2020.

Umititi though chose to laud Paul's leadership skills instead and recognised how he's developed within the World Cup games itself.

The game at Saint Petersburg Stadium, St. Petersburg, starts at 5 p.m. local time, or 10 a.m. We want to win on Sunday."ESPNFC".

Mario Mandzukic has been pivotal to getting the Croats to the World Cup final.

Reflecting on England's performance, Southgate added: "That's the privilege of being involved with England. we have a chance to be involved with people's lives and bringing happiness to millions and we've lifted some of the gloom in this country".

"Sometimes I think you have to look at the bigger picture and make decisions that might be criticised", said Southgate at the time.

"The experiences the players have had and the enjoyment is important in an England shirt".

England flew back into Birmingham on Sunday having finished fourth in the World Cup in Russian Federation. We're not in club football, where we. can go and buy new players, we have to coach and develop and improve as a group. "We've got players that are going to mature over the next couple of years. Today was always going to be a really hard game", he added. So it's nice that we've got the enthusiasm and the encouragement from the tournament, the belief from some of the experiences we've been through, and that allows us now to go back and to identify exactly what we need to do.

It means England fans will have to wait until the Three Lions' next fixtures in September to properly thank the players for their efforts. Two teams, one cup. He sets the tone and I can't speak highly enough of him.

"I must say the support we've had from home and the feeling of support is enormous".
