England were defeated 2-0 by Belgium in the third place play-off match in St. Petersburg earlier on Saturday, matching their best World Cup result of finishing fourth in 1990.

"We are under no illusions as to where we stand as a team," Southgate said.

"We've finished in the final four, but we are not a top four team yet, we know that.

"I couldn't ask any more of any of the players today or right away through the seven weeks we've worked together."
