Although the statistics registered the 58% of the ball possession in favor of Croatia against England's 42%, the first half ended with 1-0 flashing on the scoreboard.

Gareth Southgate's young squad gave their all against Croatia, and they were saluted for their efforts by thousands of England fans in Moscow after the final whistle.

That's proved to be the case, although they have relied on large part on grit and determination to see them through the knockout stages, beating Denmark and Russian Federation on penalties before seeing off England in extra time.

People will always want more and, having been within 22 minutes of playing in their first World Cup final since 1966, England must now prepare for a third-place playoff against Belgium in Saint Petersburg on Saturday, when they really wanted to be playing in Moscow 23 hours later.

Matt Reece, 25, who works in marketing, said England had far outperformed the low expectations of them when the tournament began.

"I just believe we can come back another time, and I hope before I die I see England win the World Cup", Ogunde said.

In the end, neither Croatia nor England was expected to make it this deep into the tournament, but here they are and France is waiting.

"Croatia came on strong and they have some outstanding players and some huge experience".

"We deserved to reach the final".

Southgate can reflect on two years in which he has taken England from the embarrassment of Euro 2016 to their first World Cup semi-final in 28 years.

You couldn't ask for anything more from the group of players. Look at the other teams they'll be up against. "I will get more attention and it won't be easy to go out for meals if I am in certain places but it won't change my view on the world or the things I attempt to do".

And, despite the cruel ending, history was made.

Yes, the conclusion had a familiar ring - but there was enough that was fresh and hopeful for the future that England's World Cup can be judged as a success. Nobody wanted to give in.

"Hold your heads high": The Telegraph focuses on the positives of England's run and Kane's insistence that "this is just the start".
