  • Harry Kane a young England captain in training

And England captain Kane, who missed a glorious chance to make it 2-0 in the first half, revealed the pain at England's heartbreak.

When Kane got his best chance in the 30th minute against Croatia, his first shot was saved by goalkeeper Danijel Subasic. The ball rebounded nearly out of the play, then sat up for Kane to take another shot from less than two metres. And Croatia would never let England get so close again.

Gary Neville believes England's Harry Kane was playing with an injury throughout the World Cup knockout stages after the striker misfired in the semi-final defeat to Croatia. "Obviously it's been a long time since England have done well in a major tournament", Kane said after the 2-0 quarter-final win over Sweden. It seems like that may be the case as England are out of the World Cup after being beaten by Croatia. That team also exceeded expectations and won the adulation of fans at home with a beloved center forward who played for Tottenham.

The Duke of Cambridge shared a personal message on Kensington Palace's official Twitter page encouraging Gareth Southgate and his team of Lions to "hold [their] heads high".

"You've got all these other teams that are struggling at the minute, and with teams sitting so deep, to go 5 - 0 up against any team at worldwide level is pretty good going". There's a lot we could have done better. "We restored some pride back into the shirt, which was an important thing for us to do".

He is now at the top of the Golden Boot standings for most goals scored at the tournament with two more than Belgium striker Romelu Lukaku. Their pursuit will continue in the third-place game on Saturday in St. Petersburg.

"We're looking forward to finishing strong and whatever happens we can say we're proud of each other", said Kane.
