After the loss, Lineker took to his personal Twitter account to air out his frustrations, saying the side "utterly choked".

However, while admitting that the young English side did choke, Lineker was full of praise for Gareth Southgate's squad, which included 18 World Cup debutants.

"It's a huge step forward and they'll only get better in the future," he tweeted.

"They can hold their heads high, they did our country proud."
