Gareth Southgate says England must follow Germany's example

Gareth Southgate says England must follow Germany's example

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. Well done England and well done Gareth Southgate, they've been brilliant.

Loud cheers rang out after each goal, fans waved the red, white and blue national flag, and after the final whistle Croatian TV showed wild celebrations breaking out in towns and cities. Panama didn't come close to winning a match at this year's tournament, but fans celebrated like they were lifting the trophy after scoring the first World Cup goal in the country's history. That tweet, by player Marcus Rashford to his coach Gareth Southgate, summed up what a lot of English fans are feeling this morning following their team's World Cup semifinal loss to Croatia. "The only disappointment was that we were 1-0 up, and we should have been more".

Southgate certainly believes the World Cup campaign has created a foundation.

The mental resilience necessary to come through such tests was the result of the emphasis on playing as a team, Dalic said, and indicated a wider trend at a World Cup where the likes of Neymar, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi all went home early.

"Hopefully I will get the nod against Belgium", said the 24-year-old. But once you're here and played as well as we did, you want to take those opportunities in life.




Kieran Tripper gave England the lead in the fourth minute before Ivan Perišić equalised on 68 minutes, which took the game into extra-time.

Despite failing to make the most of arguably their best chance of reaching the final since 1966, British media hailed the team as heroes with Mirror Sport declaring them "National Treasures", while the Daily Mail saluted their efforts.

"I was lying in bed finding the strength to play and it was worth it". Croatia began to get on top, and the Three Lions were punished when Perisic's equaliser sent the match into extra time.

Powell fully expected England to get knocked out at the quarter-final stage, but instead they're just two wins away from achieving the feat. Although that would not be a sacrifice hahahaha, but since I cannot do it, I would offer my house to see Croatia world champion!
