"They're coming home. With heads held high": The Times' back page leads on the image of a grimacing Kieran Trippier being helped off the field during extra time, stating that this England side will return "as heroes who have united the country and made the most sceptical of fans fall in love with the team again". Several thousand Croats also made the journey to see their country's first semi-final appearance since 1998, with 10 charter flights from Zagreb landing in Moscow on Wednesday.

"We had hoped [for this] and we believed in our team, but the feeling when we finally entered the finals can not be compared to anything", said Croatia fan Ivan Kecerin. It will hurt for a while. It will be a really hard task to assess everybody over the next 24 hours and get them mentally back to where we want them to be for a game like that, but that will be the challenge.

Defender Kyle Walker tweeted that he had "never felt so gutted" but said he wanted people to remain positive.

England's youngest player at the tournament, Trent Alexander-Arnold declared his appreciation for being part of the experience.

Additionally, at some time in the near future, the Canadian pipeline problem will be fixed and the supply disruption over. The selling pressure intensified as trade tensions between the USA and China raised concerns about demand.

"Absolutely devastated that our journey is over!" But I wonder if we are going to get the game we wanted during the group stage of England's stars against Belgium's stars.

Centre-back Harry Maguire added: "Devastated. But they gave us pride - and brought the whole nation together": The Mail uses its front page to focus on the impact England's success at the World Cup has had beyond the world of football. Thank you to every one of you who have been there each step of the way! The support at each game has been incredible.

As expected, tonight's match proved to be an entertaining one for the neutrals and a stressful experience for English supporters, who have always been claiming that this is the year it finally comes home again.

England coach Gareth Southgate said his team need to "suffer" their loss to Croatia in the World Cup semi-finals and understand the opportunity they passed up before pondering the positives from their remarkable campaign.
