England hero Harry Kane is reflecting on what might have been after the Three Lions were knocked out of the World Cup.

Croatia won a tense semi-final 2-1 after extra time, after going behind early on.

Kane did not add to his tally of six goals, with the team coming up short in Moscow.

Tottenham striker Kane commented after the defeat, discussing how much the defeat hurts.

He also said that he feels the team and country can be proud of their achievements.

Kane's clubmate Kieran Trippier gave England the lead from a free-kick early in the first half and at that point the Three Lions appeared to be heading to the semi-finals.

Failure to score a second goal came back to bite England, with Kane missing one early chance.

Croatia deserve credit for their impressive defence and stirring fightback, but that does not make heartbreak any easier for England to take.
