Mark Sampson refuses to be drawn on his England future”

"Big moments changed the game but it's one that we're very disappointed with".

"We believe we can become the best team in the world, we continue to grow and we are in a better place now than we were in two years ago after the World Cup, so if we can do that there is no reason why we can't be the best team in the world", she said.

Full-back Lucy Bronze agreed that they must move on: "We have to keep working hard".

"What we have developed in the last 12 months is strong work ethic and determination to do whatever it takes to be the best they can be, improve every day and use whatever they can find to be a better player and person to help this team win".

To compound England's misery, two of the Dutch goals were scored by England-based players - Arsenal's Vivianne Miedema and Danielle van de Donk - and the hosts' late third was an own goal by Millie Bright.

The match was screened live by Channel 4 and the viewing figures eclipse the previous best mark for a women's match of 3.3 million for England's quarter-final victory over France last Sunday.

"Now we need time to reflect on everything before thinking about moving forward".

And now the 34-year-old needs time to take in what happened in Enschede before he commits to the next World Cup cycle - which begins in earnest next month.

Though Taylor went on to score five goals in the tournament before England' departure, she was unable to come up with the goods on Thursday.

England's semi-final loss to Holland at Euro 2017 was watched by a British record television audience for women's football. It's disappointing but things didn't fall our way tonight.

Reflecting on the impact of the defeat on his squad, he added: "I've got 24 devastated women in the changing room".

Organisers UEFA accredited 132 media for England's semi-final at the sold-out 30,000-capacity FC Twente Stadion, including 89 in the press seats.

"They've shed a load of tears, along with the staff, but I'm incredibly proud of the team".

"But for a manager, as well as the players, these tournaments are emotional rollercoasters and we had some fantastic highs and tough lows".
