England Players React To World Cup Defeat But It's Just The Beginning
Last night was a weird one, wasn't it? There, on that pitch inside the Luzhniki Stadium, was a bunch of young LADs doing their absolute all for their country.
Who would have thought that we'd be saying 'Where you going to watch the semis?' or, 'Do you fancy a pint for the semi-final?' a few weeks ago? Not many people, that's who.
Everyone got behind the Three Lions, people had their bodies inked, Ross Kemp went bonkers and no one can forget the brave England fan who ran into the boozer full of Colombian fans.
We've had a good laugh along the way, haven't we?
But the question is, can we still have a bank holiday after the final though? Because we're still going to be having a beer regardless. And don't try to deny it.
Which is why the last thing we want is for those that worked the hardest to be down in the dumps about the whole thing.
It hurts a lot. It will hurt for a while. We can be proud and we'll be back. Thanks for all your support. #ThreeLions #ENG #WorldCup pic.twitter.com/mJKOWtAOlK

Yes, you'd be right if you're thinking, 'What does that daft cow know, just let us be miserable' Because I know nothing but I've seen an entire nation come together in support, and that's something to be proud of - right?
They gave us hope and made us believe. That's really what it's all about. And we got some mighty fine hangovers along the way as well - but McDonald's are sorting all that out for us this morning.
Far exceeded expectations. Well done @England and well done @GarethSouthgate you have been brilliant. Given us great entertainment and found a system and given us hope. #threelions #RussiaWorldCup2018

Utterly choked, but this young side gave absolutely everything. It's a huge step forward and they'll only get better in the future. They can hold their heads high, they did our country proud. Congratulations to Croatia.

Let's take some time to thank this glorious bunch of LADs for the efforts they have put in the last few weeks. And the main man himself - Gareth Southgate. His waistcoats will go down as a treasured memory - but this won't be the last we see of them.
