Best Scottish Twitter reactions to England’s exit from the World Cup”

Meanwhile, Croatia, who dashed England's hopes of a World Cup final spot, are the "dark horse", the research found, while "dominate" and "impress" were also frequently used in connection with the team.

That the nation will be backing them to gain revenge for the World Cup semi-final loss to France in 1998 is without question, as is the fact that there will once again be an army of fans decked out in red and white checks at the Luzhniki Stadium.

"It's a young team, the majority of the players will play in the next World Cup with more experience at club level", the Portuguese boss told RT.

Some of them are genuine works of arts, while others are just downright weird.

England captain Harry Kane will likely come home from the Fifa World Cup with the Golden Boot as the tournament's top scorer and a burnished reputation as a feared forward.

"You did us proud": The Star pays tribute to England's "brave lions", even though they came up short on a "night of raw emotion".

Southgate said: "At the moment we all feel the pain of the defeat".

The front pages are in stark contrast to how England's performance was portrayed in 2014, when the team were knocked out in the group stages - the first time since 1958.

However, fans said the side had "finished further than anyone dreamed". Thank you, England": "A simple message of gratitude from the Express, accompanied by a picture of Southgate and his players showing their appreciation to the travelling supporters.

Despite not making the final, England have one more game to play at the World Cup when they face-off against Belgium on Sunday morning (AEST) in the third place play-off.

"When they come up against a decent team, I think it's inevitable that they were going to struggle tonight", he added.

"This will hurt for a while but we can hold our heads up, it's been a fantastic journey but we've got to learn from it and take what we can".
