Ivan Rakitic says he would gladly sacrifice the rest of his football career to win the World Cup for Croatia.

England manager Gareth Southgate had admitted that his side have overachieved at this summers World Cup.

Gareth Southgate tempered his pride with realism as he reflected on England's World Cup campaign following the 2-0 defeat to Belgium in Saturday's third place play-off.

Now, with the World Cup winding down and England players heading home to their various clubs, ready for the next domestic season, it's natural for fans to start thinking about the future.

The Premier League starts in less than a month, meaning numerous players who impressed at the World Cup may not be 100 per cent fit or in sparkling form when the next worldwide squad is announced at the end of August.

"I'm proud of my team-mates in the way we've dealt with things and I'm proud of the fans too".

The expectation changes as the players improve, so we'll be better prepared to deal with the level of expectation.

Southgate's squad flew back to Birmingham on Sunday afternoon after becoming only the third English team to reach the last four.

"We're probably a little bit short on big-game experience, a bit short on number of national caps and we're a bit young for what a winning national team looks like", he said.

Kylian Mbappé has had a superb World Cup, and was in great form again against Belgium, tormenting them with his pace and trickery. "I was laying in bed drawing strength to play", said Rakitic.

Southgate was giving little away about whether any of the squad's senior players will be calling time on their worldwide careers.

"We haven't hidden in terms of where we see our progress".

"And they should be proud of themselves because they've achieved an equal high in terms of tournament performance that any English team that's has to come overseas for a tournament has achieved". "There are players who have played a lot of minutes and we need to have that in mind", Martinez said.

Modric has covered more yards than any player at the World Cup, registering 63.03 kilometers (39 miles) in six games, according to Federation Internationale de Football Association.

'All I can do is tip my hat and congratulate them.

"He came into the picture at a very hard moment".

"We've got players that are going to mature over the next couple of years".

"It's a really hard challenge for both teams to pick themselves up and go again", Southgate said. "Holidays first, then I'll think about it with my people", Courtois told Belgian daily Het Laatste Nieuws.
