They had previously defeated Tunisia 5-2 and Panama 3-0. In eighths they beat Japan 3-2, in rooms 2-1 to Brazil and in the semifinals they lost 0-1 against France.
England came to this World Cup with a team in transition , reflecting their training categories that conquered the U-20 and U-17 World Cups in 2017, as well as the European Under 19. Gareth Southgate has taken the World Cup to players like Pickford, Butland, Dier, Sterling, Alli, Rashford, Kane, Stones, Lingard and Loftus-Cheek, who were already with him in sub 21, with stars like Harry Kane. With them he has achieved the best English result since 1990, although his plan is for the longer term.
