  • England manager Gareth Southgate conducts the fans after his side's win over Sweden

England defender Kyle Walker could not hide the pain of the crushing 2-1 defeat by Croatia after extra time denied them a place in the World Cup final but he could take solace from restoring pride in the national team and proving critics wrong.

England are now ranked joint 12th in the official Federation Internationale de Football Association rankings alongside Denmark but their run in Russia should see that position improve. But I think we are better. I can see what we have achieved.

"We have a captain whose first thought all tournament has been how far can the team go?"

Southgate said: "We have high motivation to perform and finish with a medal at a World Cup, which only one England team have done". "We want to finish the tournament well", he added.

"It will be a match they will be ready for and I don't think extra time or penalties has been or will be a handicap for them", said Matuidi.

"They coped brilliantly with all of that".

Despite England's exit, Southgate remains proud of the impact that his players have made. We've raised expectation because we've also raised belief.

All fans were happy their country playing a sport they say put them on the map. "There's an energy and connection that's back". "That's important in the short, mid and long term as well".

"We saw in the last game that they finished the stronger of the two teams".

"There is a lot of motivation for us and Belgium have already beaten us, so we would like to address that as well". We have overcome so many challenges that have haunted England in the past... "If you're there, then the chances of success are high".

The possibility of a public celebration in the team's honour had been raised in response to their unexpected run to the final four, the nation's best performance in 28 years.

"It was not my decision [to rule out a parade] but I agree with the decision", he said.

"Maybe we could bring those who are having difficulties communicating with each other to start dialogue", the Federation Internationale de Football Association president said at his only World Cup news conference. (Ashley) Young, too, so we will have to make changes and so what's right. The country has united behind football.

However, Southgate has a contract until 2020, which could be extended until beyond the 2022 World Cup, giving England stability.

"They are a team who defend well and attack well after recovering the ball".

"I'm not scared of anything", he said.
