English Captain, Harry Kane shared a heartfelt message to fans after the Three Lions were knocked out of the World Cup by rivals France.

The squad beat Senegal 3-0 to reach the quarter-finals but were defeated 2-1 after losing to the French.

France scored its first goal in the 17th minute when Aurélien Tchouaméni with an assist from Antoine Griezmann secured the team's first successful strike.

England brought the game back when Harry Kane scored a penalty in the second half.

However, Harry Kane missed a second penalty near the end of the match, securing the French a victory.

This means England is no longer in the tournament and that France will go on to play Morroco next week.

Morroco reached the semi-finals in a major World Cup upset after the North African team beat Portugal 1-0.

Whoever wins between the two will play either Croatia or Argentina in the long-anticipated final in Qatar.

France won the last World Cup when it took place in Russia in 2018 and is now one step closer to this year's final.

England midfielder, Jordan Henderson praised the team's captain despite Kane missing the second penalty, telling ITV: "We know how many penalties Harry has scored, how many goals he has contributed for us to get us here. He scored the first one.

England manager, Southgate commented on the result when asked if the team deserved more, saying: “I think the performance did but in the end goals are decisive.
