Dalic's men saw off England in extra-time at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow, when they bounced back from Kieran Trippier's fifth-minute opener to eventually triumph 2-1.

England remain in the tournament and still have to play the third place play-off - dubbed "the game no-one wants to play" against Belgium at 3pm on Saturday, July 14. "They've shown remarkable character", Southgate said.

"When you get to this stage of the competition, the margins are fine. they've taken two of their (chances) and we weren't able to respond".

Meanwhile the England men's U20's team achieved World Cup glory after beating Venezuela 1-0 a year ago.

Referencing the 52 years that England have gone since winning the World Cup, The Guardian sport section leads with the image of the moment Mario Mandzukic fired the winning goal beyond Jordan Pickford.

"We have to keep the same standard", Walker said.

Fans across England have hailed Gareth Southgate and his players for a stirring World Cup journey, after their heartbreaking semi-final defeat.

"I just believe we can come back another time, and I hope before I die I see England win the World Cup", added Ogunde. But I'm remarkably proud of a group of players who have really advanced. I don't realistically think any of us did.

"We've proved to ourselves that is possible and we've proved to our country that is possible".

England captain Kane told ITV Sport: "It's tough. They all looked at me when I was talking - "Not me, I can continue", Dalic concluded.

"We salute you": It's pretty much a love letter from the Mail's sport section to Southgate and his team. "There was a period of the game in the second half where we didn't have that controlled possession, and the game became too end to end with us not building in the way we have been. Everybody has come. It's the best feeling in a long time".

These are among the most popular words used to describe teams in this summer's tournament, according to research by Cambridge University Press.
