The chief executive of the Football Association, Mark Bullingham, has expressed his pride at England's performances at the 2022 World Cup in an extremely supportive statement.

The Three Lions were eliminated by holders France on Saturday night, as goals from Aurelien Tchouameni and Olivier Giroud condemned Gareth Southgate's side to a quarter-final exit for a record seventh time.

England's players will perhaps look back at what might have been, with their performance here far superior to the one put in against Croatia when losing in the semi-final of the 2018 World Cup.
