"I think we've really got a huge amount out of this group of players and they deserve massive credit".

The 35-year-old singer said: "We still changed the history of the past 28 years I'm proud of how far we came and proud of Gareth Southgate".

But for the joint second youngest squad at the tournament, and a country who no longer belong at the top table of global football, reaching a World Cup semi final was most definitely an over achievement.

FIFA has warned England's Football Association (FA) for "political chants" made by fans during Wednesday's World Cup semifinal defeat to Croatia. There's no question about that. Gary is a good guy and has a good relationship with us managers at the top teams.

Southgate added: "I thought Stones was absolutely outstanding and [goalkeeper Jordan] Pickford has had a wonderful tournament". I can see what we have achieved, albeit when you are so close you look back at what we might have done.
