England take on Croatia in the World Cup semi-final on Wednesday

England were beaten 2-1 in Moscow after extra-time as they attempted to reach a first World Cup final since 1966.

Granted, he's played more minutes than anyone else because of going to extra time in three consecutive knockout games but 39.1 miles is still utterly incredible.

Southgate has one last assignment before signing off in Russian Federation, negotiating Saturday's third-place play-off against a Belgium side who were 1-0 winners when the sides met in Kaliningrad during the group phase.

The European Championship in two years' time will be staged in 12 different cities across the continent, but the climax will come at Wembley - which won the rights to stage the semi- finals and final, as well as group games and a last-16 tie.

"It goes to show we're deserved finalists, we want to show the world we play as one and we'll leave everything on the pitch".

England manager Gareth Southgate addressed his players and staff at their base in Repino yesterday following their crushing World Cup semi-final defeat to Croatia. I hope we will make the world happy.

Antonio Conte sacked by Chelsea with Maurizio Sarri set to replace him
This one is probably more of a dream than a reality for Chelsea fans, but Sarri may be able to force a move through. Conte, who is now into the final year of his contract , also spent much of the weekend at Chelsea's base.

Their best finish came in 1986 when they finished fourth out of 24 teams in Mexico, losing the third-place match to France.

"We will see how he is".

"We owe it as much to ourselves as to our nation to finish well". "They did an bad lot better than I ever done, or we ever done". We will have some extra motivation because of that, for sure.

Even so, he said he would try to lift his team. "(Our aim is to) build with a system now through the development teams where we've had a lot of success at junior level".

England skipper Harry Kane is atop the charts with six goals to his name but Belgium striker Romelu Lukaku is just two goals behind him in the race for the Golden Boot.

"The reality is that none of us know if that's as good as it gets", Southgate answered.

Gowdy was repeatedly interrupted through the rest of his questions, while he and Strzok got into a heated exchange. The unsubstantiated accusations drew forceful objections from Democrats, including from Rhode Island Rep.

"The downside was it took them another eight years to win (the World Cup)".

"I can't ask for more from the players". Deflated England and Belgium will nonetheless want to end their FIFA World Cup campaign somewhat on a high on Saturday.

"But if we had a parade that would have been one part of the country and we represent the whole country as well".

"Of course it's going to be a really hard task over the next 24 hours to get everyone mentally back to where we want them for a game like that".

"And I think we need to take full credit for that because we've changed that".
