Both England and Belgium escaped Group G to reach the World Cup semifinal, but after both teams failed to reach the final, they'll meet again in the third place match. "It looked like as the game advanced, we improved physically and that was impressive".

England will play Belgium in the third-place match on Saturday, so there's still a chance that Southgate and the team won't walk away totally empty-handed.

The Village in Station Hill was packed full of optimistic fans as Gareth Southgate's men played their first semi-final since 1990 against Croatia.

"He is 32 or 33 and has given me hope this is not my last tournament and I am looking forward to going to the Euros and, hopefully, going to another World Cup as this experience has been incredible".

"But then there's a saying: Of all the unimportant things in the world, football is the most important".

Thanks to England's run to the semi-finals in Russian Federation, there will have been plenty more added to the charitable pot.
