Kieran Trippier fired England into a fifth-minute lead but Ivan Perisic forced extra-time, where Mario Mandzukic won the match for Croatia.

Southgate told "At the moment we all feel the pain of the defeat, did we expect to be in this position? I don't think realistically any of us did. But when you've got to this point and you've played in the way we have and played as well as we have in the first half you want to take those opportunities in life. The dressing room is a very difficult place at the moment. But what I will say is I'm remarkably proud of a group of players who have really advanced. I think the reaction of the supporters to them, compared to two years ago, tells them that, first and foremost, that experiences with England can be positive, the country are very proud of them and the way that they've played and there will in time be a lot of positives to take."
