England's players celebrate Dele Alli putting them 2-0 up against Sweden

Chris Chang leads TVNZ's football buffs in looking at what to expect from the FIFA World Cup final.

Fans across England have hailed Gareth Southgate and his players for a stirring World Cup journey, after their heartbreaking semi-final defeat. The two teams played in the final group stage match with reserves, with Belgium winning 1-0 and earning placement into the tougher side of the knockout bracket as a result.

"We've definitely written ourselves into history, given the conditions and infrastructure back home, we are a miracle", he added.

Belgium and England face off in the third-place match after losing in the semifinals.

Katich said the World Cup had brought an already-close Croatian community even closer together.

Still, with England fielding the second-youngest squad all around at the World Cup this year, there's plenty for Southgate to take pride in. He said the players were "absolutely gutted" but the fans' reaction in the stadium after the game showed what they had achieved.

It is understood that more than 20 supporters were identified by the authorities and they lost their FAN-IDs and were sent home. Addiechi said some of the 1.5 million people issued with fan identification laminates had them stripped, and were deported.

Gareth Southgate: England will play Belgium with 'huge pride'
We're going to celebrate, to rest and then we will prepare for France. "I'm still heartbroken and never felt so gutted". He said: "It feels incredible, especially after everything that was said about us before the game".

Given they arrived in Russian Federation as rank outsiders, however, Southgate was invited to detail the positives from a campaign that appears to have repaired the strained relationship between England and its team.

"This was our problem for 10 years, we had great individuals but no unity and that's why I had to build that unity of goal in the team". "They have a day off and we'll assess them tomorrow". In my preview for the game I said if we are leading or level with 30 minutes to go we should run away with it, but it was the other way round.

Pitana returned to Brazil in 2016 for the Olympic Football Tournament, where he was the man in the middle for the semi-final between Germany and Nigeria.

Another said: "I KNEW REBIC GOT BOOKED TWICE I WANT A REMATCH RIGHT NOW!"
