"The only time we went out was after the first game against Uruguay when we drew 0-0, which wasn't a good start".

"Luck was against us", Cherchesov said.

Southgate lowered expectations before the tournament, highlighting his team's youth and inexperience, with the result that the public was ready to be forgiving and began to view the side nearly as underdogs.

"They've been through a lot", Southgate added. The penalty shootout win was the first ever for England at the World Cup. They took photographs of themselves with the crowd and unfurled a banner saying "we play for you".
