England's Southgate cites Germany blueprint as model for success

France are the bookmakers' favorites to win the clash at Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium after they showed impressive defensive discipline under their 1998 World Cup-winning coach, who was himself renowned as a no-nonsense midfielder.

England arrived at this World Cup with the least experienced squad in terms of caps, but Southgate said the agony of losing was just as strong despite surpassing limited expectations. "You're disappointed because you lose the semi-final, and it's very hard to see the opportunity of playing another game as a positive", he said.

Both Croatia and England had their local fans behind them with each side dressed head to toe in their team's colours.

Gareth Southgate's England team were hailed as heroes by British media, who acclaimed their achievement rather than dwelled on disappointment after their heartbreaking World Cup exit on Wednesday. "It's always there every time we wear the shirt of our national team, we want to play with pride, we want to play well and win". "There is an energy and connection back".

Southgate and his players have been hailed back home after reaching the last four for the first time since 1990, and for bringing together a nation bitterly divided over Brexit.

The FA must be delighted with this World Cup performance by the Three Lions as a third or fourth place finish sees them scoop a whopping $24m which is a $2m increase on the 2014 prize money. "We had six matches playing with this system before we came into the tournament. Many of these players have come of age and I couldn't be prouder of them".
