England World Cup report card: How the players rated and who will join Kane and Pickford for Euro 2020?

There were some standout performers in Russia but manager Gareth Southgate will have plenty to think about

The public consensus was one of overwhelming satisfaction - England made their country proud in reaching the World Cup semi-finals for the first time since 1990.

Having lost to Belgium in the third-fourth place match, however, they return home with three defeats in the tournament, so there is clearly plenty of work to be done for manager Gareth Southgate and his staff ahead of Euro 2020.

A number of England players have boosted their reputation though - among them goalkeeper Jordan Pickford and defender Harry Maguire, while captain Harry Kane is poised to collect the Golden Boot unless France go goal crazy in tonight's final.

Slide through the images at the top to see how the England squad rated, and whether they are likely to be involved when the next big tournament comes around.
