France not expecting tired Croatia in World Cup final

14 July 2018

England still have the third-place play-off against Belgium to negotiate on Saturday, but Southgate has already begun planning for the future.

"In terms of mentality, it's obviously been a really hard couple of days for us", the England manager said.

"It's the game of our lives to play in a World Cup final, a dream I've had since I was a kid". The reason for us being here was to achieve that big goal.

"They see a team that leaves everything on the pitch, which they have, and played with style".

"But I've got to say the players are incredible".

"I don't think it's a factor", he said at news conference at the French training base on the outskirts of Moscow.

"The youth and enthusiasm of the team propelled them back into the minds of their public", said Southgate.

"We were motivated irrespective of that".

When I made a decision to play Croatia I followed my dreams. "I wish him all the luck in the world". They have real humility. "I don't think realistically any of us did", he said.

In response to whether he's scared England peaked at this World Cup, Southgate joked he's not even scared of "the big bad wolf". There's nothing better, when people are writing you off and saying you're not fit to wear the shirt, slagging people off, it's kind of saying: "Well there you go - have that back at you", he said.

England were left in the lurch after a gut-wrenching 1-2 defeat at the hands of Croatia after extra-time.
