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.

Laura Grimes, of Cambridge University Press, said: "The huge amount of language data we've collected and analysed gives us fascinating insight into the mood surrounding the World Cup".

England have not been in the semi-finals of the World Cup since 1990 when they lost on penalties to then West Germany.

Former players and staff have also posted a series of positive messages after England's run came to an end.

But England had chances to win it and Southgate was left to rue them at the final whistle.

Little Croatia through to the World Cup Final!

Earlier the spokeswoman said May had been effusive in her praise for Southgate, who has won plaudits for his leadership, grace under pressure and intelligence.


"National treasures": The Mirror's back page is even more positive, insisting that "Southgate's courageous Lions restore faith in the England dream despite agonising Moscow defeat". Many questioned whether Premier League stars paid tens of thousands of pounds a week really cared about the three lions that David Baddiel and Frank Skinner famously sang about.

One of them was Gareth Southgate, the head coach and manager of the English soccer team.

On Thursday morning Walker was in reflective mood.

While Mourinho lamented England's inability to grab a second to kill the game off, he admitted the Perisic leveller gave Croatia "an overdose of confidence" that changed the game. "I don't think realistically we expected to be here".

"You've brought belief and the love of football back".

"You see the supporters stay at the end and that tells you what the players have given, not just tonight but over the period and I can't ask any more of what the players and staff have given". The governing body did not provide further details.
