Please fold your flags neatly away, and store them safely. It’s coming home, it is just being delayed.
Thank you, the English team, for giving us two weeks of sheer unadulterated joy and happiness. Thank you for lifting the spirits and making us sing.
Today, we are heartbroken. Today is for if onlys and what ifs. Tomorrow, the countdown to 2022 begins.
We now have the best team in my footballing memory (which is older than any of the current players by the way). The team led by Gareth Southgate and Harry Kane deserves everything there is to win in football and they will get there.
Semi-finals in 2018, final this year, next year the trophy.
