Having been largely absent during England's run to last night's World Cup semi-final, a host of additional English fans travelled to Russian Federation ahead of their country's game against Croatia last night.

"You can't win the big trophies, you can't dominate football matches, you can't put yourself in a position where you are not giving the ball away unless you've got good players in midfield who can keep the ball".

"Maybe (that was) a effect of being ahead and being the least experienced team in the tournament with the chance to get to a World Cup final", he added.

Gary Lineker waved goodbye to Germany when they were knocked out the World Cup and now Scots are doing the same to England.

England captain Harry Kane will likely come home from the Fifa World Cup with the Golden Boot as the tournament's top scorer and a burnished reputation as a feared forward.

England fans were left devastated tonight after being beaten by Croatia.

And because BA were clearly really going for it, customers were also given boarding passes with customer name "Football" and destination "Home", which we'd imagine might fetch a bob or two on eBay should England come out triumphant.

But even though England are out, they've still had an wonderful tournament.

Meanwhile the England men's U20's team achieved World Cup glory after beating Venezuela 1-0 a year ago. The fans were fantastic, " Kane said.

"Whether that had an effect on us not wanting to take as many chances as we had, subconsciously, I don't know".

Despite the potentially imminent tattoo remarkably Powell is still supporting England. "I don't think realistically we expected to be here".

"This will hurt for a while but we can hold our heads up, it's been a fantastic journey but we've got to learn from it and take what we can". Asked how far he thought the still young England team could progress in the next World Cup, he said: "This far, if not the final".
