"I was back in my hometown".

F1 driver Hamilton wrote on Twitter that the team had done England proud, showing "real grit and determination".

England have been based in Repino near St. Petersburg for the tournament, but their campaign has taken them to five different host cities.

"I felt very welcomed. I think France are going to win overall, that's my prediction".

Shane Clee, 37, an agricultural goods salesman, said: "I'm a huge footie fan, and a big Shrewsbury Town fan in particular".

"I'm here with my Welsh mates who are pretending to be Englishmen for the night".

There's no reason to believe this growth won't continue as they become yet more familiar playing with each other and on the world stage.

"It's not just my generation, it would be fantastic for the younger generation too if we won".

"What the players did today, the strength, energies levels, was incredible", he said. The atmosphere was great because it's nice to see children getting involved and getting behind the team as well as adults.

The opening 15-minute stretch of the overtime ended with the draw of 1-1 as well, but it was Croatia to up the score to 2-1 in the next 15-minute period of the overtime after forward Mario Mandzukic netted the ball.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan, who helped organise the event, asked for a family-friendly atmosphere after instances of disorder following England's quarter-final victory over Sweden on Saturday. "It's like how rugby is in New Zealand", she said.

"Heroes" There's plenty of sympathy in defeat from The Mirror, which offsets the image of Jamie Vardy and Dele Alli crouched on the turf at the final whistle with the message, "We're proud of you all".
