It was awesome to be a part of it, and seeing them all so happy has been one of the stand-out moments of my time in Russian Federation.

Additionally, Avon and Somerset police said that during disorder in Weston-super-Mare at the end of the match, a 23-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of assaulting a police officer and punching a police horse three times.

"God willing, we will be world champions".

I have worked on every major tournament as a BBC pundit since the 2006 World Cup and this one has been my favourite by a long way.

That game is best known for Turkey forward Hakan Sukur scoring the fastest World Cup goal in history, needing only 11 seconds to make it 1-0.. And we won a knockout game.

In a moment captured by cameras, Southgate - a former player himself who ended up managing the English national team for his first World Cup this year - shared a tender embrace with his wife, Alison, in the empty stands.

"Everything I have done in my life and in my professional career I owe to my faith, and I am grateful to my Lord", Dalic said.

Southgate said playing regularly in big matches was a key stage of development for his players and that the way they dropped away in the second half was perhaps a result of their inexperience.
