England are out of the World Cup after losing 2-1 to Croatia in the semi-finals.

"Maybe (that was) a outcome of being ahead and being the least experienced team in the tournament with the chance to get to a World Cup final", he added.

The England boss was also asked if the team's leading scorer Harry Kane had exhausted as the tournament progressed and was perhaps missing his cutting edge in the semifinals.

Even before his goal, Mandzukic had spent some minutes on the turf after a collision with England goalkeeper Jordan Pickford and an agonising attack of cramp left him once again prone on the pitch in the wake of his decisive strike.

But a second-half goal from Ivan Perisic and an extra-time victor from Mario Mandzukic ended England's dream of reaching the final and winning a second World Cup for their country.

Southgate said: "At the moment we all feel the pain of the defeat". He said the players were "absolutely gutted" but the fans' reaction in the stadium after the game showed what they had achieved.

He will spend Thursday and Friday in England, visiting Windsor and Chequers, before heading to Scotland for the weekend. That prompted almost half a million people to sign a petition calling for Trump to be banned from the UK.

The Juventus striker finally limped off utterly exhausted six minutes from time but promised unstinting effort on Sunday to bring the World Cup back to the nation of some four million people.

In 1990, three years before Kane was born, England also fell short at the semifinal stage with a team that exceeded expectations and won the adulation of fans at home with a beloved centre forward.

Back then, a powerful West Germany team edged England in a penalty shootout after a 1-1 draw, and lifted the trophy days later. And I think we need to take full credit for that because we've changed that. Thank you, England": "A simple message of gratitude from the Express, accompanied by a picture of Southgate and his players showing their appreciation to the travelling supporters.

In Moscow, Croatia fans said they were taken aback by their side's win.
