    More from Gareth Southgate: "Harry Kane has given everything for the team. He has captained the team brilliantly throughout this tournament and I couldn't have asked more of him as a captain or as a man over the past three weeks."
    Quite a low bar set then.

    England

    Lack of quality showed in the end. You can’t just rely on set pieces and expect to overcome the good teams. Very disappointing to say the least.

    Ken Early nailed it by saying this was a once in a lifetime moment of euphoria made more intense because it was so unexpected as England have been useless at tournaments for so long.

    The problem now is that expectancy levels have ramped back up once again and the feeling amongst most England fans will be that they should be winning Euro’s and WC’s going forward.

    Pretty much. Kane is our only really world class player and he wasn’t up to much today.
    Actually thought we played alright in the first half and had we got a second we might just have held on but we don’t have enough quality and France would have taken us apart in the final. They’ll be hot favourites against Croatia too

    so actually he isn't world class either

    modric and mandzukic have been patchy throughout but came up with enough to win it

    our players will always be limited in what they can do or achieve until they grow their ambitions, lose their xenophobia and play abroad - fat chance of that though...

    We desperately lack a playmaker. It’s quite incredible really that England got this far without scoring hardly any goals from open passages of play.

    Kane is an excellent striker but without the service he’s not going to be up to much. Sterling for all his effort was ordinary and Alli was just shit, 2 key positions that we fell woefully short in.
