  • Gareth Southgate lookalike in waistcoat

Former Sussex schoolboy Gareth Southgate suffered World Cup semi-final heartbreak after his England team lost 2-1 after extra-time against Russian Federation. But if you like Belgium to win, the safest play could just be on Belgium -135 to finish in third place regardless of the 90-minute result.

I mean, this is some Tami/Coach Taylor level support right here, so it's no surprise that people were SHOOK.

'Equally, though, I said I was incredibly proud of them for how they have been, and how they have represented their country and how they have played; the mentality they have shown, the respect they have shown for the shirt. They produced a Herculean effort to get over the line against England at the Luzhniki Stadium, but may have to go the distance again to see off this brilliant French side.

'I'm not sure it was flawless by any means, ' said Southgate.

In the eyes of Sam Allardyce, England crashed out of the World Cup thanks in part to some poor finishing by Tottenham striker Harry Kane. "They can see we are capable of progressing". The Tottenham defender bent his shot from 25 yards over the wall with a shot with his best imitation of David Beckham, the last England player to score direct from a free kick at the World Cup.

"It is a major blow for Southgate", Robson said.

In a moment captured by cameras, Southgate - a former player himself who ended up managing the English national team for his first World Cup this year - shared a tender embrace with his wife, Alison, in the empty stands.

"We worked as hard as we could.it hurts, it hurts a lot and it will hurt for a long time".

TV host James Corden tweeted in response to someone who said that England's captain had let the team down: "Nobody let anybody down". "Who would have thought it, at the start of the tournament when everyone was writing us off?" 'All the games we've had against the bigger teams we haven't won.

England remain in the tournament and still have to play the third place play-off - dubbed "the game no-one wants to play" against Belgium at 3pm on Saturday, July 14.
