The extra-time loss to Croatia in midweek means the Three Lions are preparing for Saturday's third-place play-off against Belgium in St Petersburg instead of the showpiece final against France the following day.

Despite the disappointment of losing Wednesday's semi-final in extra time, Southgate is determined England will leave Russian Federation on a high with victory against Belgium.

7 - goals in the tournament's highest-scoring games, Belgium's 5-2 win over Tunisia and England's 6-1 rout of Panama in Group G and France's 4-3 win over Argentina in the last 16. We will push them to play our game.

A spokeswoman for the Prime Minister said: "We would certainly like to host a reception for the England football team who did so well in Russian Federation and that is something that we are going to talk to the FA about".

Both Croatia and England had their local fans behind them with each side dressed head to toe in their team's colours. "It's the winning that counts", he said.

You have to cope with expectation if you want to play for England.

"Regardless of Sunday's result, which I believe will be a victory, we are winners".

"We always respect our opponents and expect them to respect us back", Dalic told reporters in Moscow on Thursday. "I think if we make the final maybe it's different". We will have some extra motivation because of that, for sure.

"It won't be exactly the same starting XI, but we want ideally to make as few changes as possible".

"The reality is that none of us know if that's as good as it gets", Southgate answered.

"They didn't want to hide anything from us, and that is why that sanction was chosen".

"Congratulations to the England team for getting so far in the World Cup", Scudamore said, calling it "a great achievement".

"We could have pushed a bit more in the second half". He never represented his country at worldwide level during a modest career as a defensive midfielder. If we were to hold a tournament in ping pong all of us would be rooting for that single player.

Captain Harry Kane will be among the more interesting selection decisions, given the sharpshooter is gunning for the Golden Boot.

"I think everyone was a little nervous about how the whole tournament was going to go".

"Of course it's going to be a really hard task over the next 24 hours to get everyone mentally back to where we want them for a game like that".
