"For Croatia it's probably the last World Cup for Luka Modric and for Portugal Cristiano [Ronaldo] is 33 and will be 37 at the next World Cup. In England you don't have this situation".

That agonising 2-1 extra-time defeat to wily Croatia was compounded on Saturday as Belgium's "Golden Generation" won the third-place play-off 2-0 in St Petersburg.

Southgate is determined to paint a positive picture of England's tournament, despite the agony of missing out on their first final since 1966.

"The most important thing has been the togetherness of the players and fans", said the 27-year-old dubbed "the Bury Beckham" for the consistent excellence of his set-piece delivery.

Manchester City's Fabian Delph was also pictured on the team bus, looking out at the excited fans as he lapped up the final moments in Repino.

"You don't have to be a giant to play football, I'm happy with where I am".

Another cabinet displays the original kits from teams during the nation's tumultuous history, from its period as part of the Austro-Hungarian empire, through World War II, to Yugoslavia and now modern-day independent Croatia.

"Against Ukraine we got the result, we breezed past Greece in the playoff and a great deal of that is due to our coach". Some of the players couldn't go again. They all wanted to but we knew we needed to refresh the team to have any chance in the game.

"But there were some incredible individual performances for us".

"Without their character, without their fortitude, they wouldn't have reached this final", the coach said through a translator.

"So, in the end we are very proud of what we've done".

"We really appreciate the work Gareth has done and the team he has put together on and off the pitch", Glenn said.

Glenn told BBC Radio 5 live's Sportsweek programme: "We got to the semi-final".

But absent will be Croatia striker Nikola Kalinic, sent home in ignominy in the first week of the World Cup after refusing to come on as a substitute in the team's opening game against Nigeria. I couldn't ask for any more from the players.

The England team have returned home after finishing fourth at the World Cup.

Gareth Southgate's side, who exceeded expectations by reaching the semi-finals in Russian Federation, arrived back at Birmingham on a flight from St Petersburg on Sunday afternoon. We overcame a lot of hurdles in the tournament and it can only benefit the players.

"I think it would be wrong to judge any player on today's game if their energy levels were short". He's led the culture that we're trying to create.

"We are going to keep getting stronger". And they're a pretty proud bunch!

Kovak said the museum, opened two years ago by the Croatian Football Association, aims to celebrate the country's football landmarks, including the low points. There's a lot of talk about relationship between our two countries, but. mixing with the people of Russian Federation. we've had a wonderful experience, and I think that all our supporters have had as well.
