Prince William's heartfelt message to England squad after World Cup dreams end

England

Mario Mandzukic shot past England goalkeeper Jordan Pickford in the 109th minute and Croatia closed out a 2-1 victory to reach their first World Cup final.

We imagine if - sorry when - England get through to the final, BA and other companies will have to up their game even more.

Self-confessed football fan and president of the FA Prince William, 36, shared a rare personal message on Twitter last night after England narrowly missed out on a spot in the 2018 World Cup final.

"Let me explain. They played the worst team in the tournament in Panama".

It was never going to happen, of course, as the ecstasy of taking a tiny nation to the final of the World Cup for the first time needed to be worked through with the people that provided the players with support and inspiration.

England will play their final game of the tournament on Saturday when they face Belgium in the third/fourth place playoff in Saint Petersburg's Krestovsky Stadium.

It's easily the best goal in England's biggest ever win at a 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".

However, fans said the side had "finished further than anyone dreamed".

Both of his goals came from set-plays, and given he is averaging 0.29 xG per 90 minutes, he can be expected to get at least one chance in this game.

"A couple of weeks ago, I would have taken this result", said another England fan.

'Keep doing it and I hope this World Cup brings you unforgettable personal memories. And I think we need to take full credit for that because we've changed that.

The mutual appreciation between squad and fans was slightly marred by news on Thursday that Federation Internationale de Football Association had opened disciplinary proceedings against the FA following a report of possible discriminatory chanting by England supporters during the Croatia match.
