’s England were left heartbroken after falling to a 2-1 defeat to reigning champions France at the 2022 quarter-finals.

Aurelien Tchouameni’s stunning strike gave France the lead with England struggling to get a foot in the game with the referee making numerous questionable calls against the Three Lions.

Southgate’s side started the second-half the better team and finally got a decision their way when Harry Kane scored from the spot after Bukayo Saka was fouled.

However, Olivier Giroud managed to put Les Bleus ahead late on after outmuscling Harry Maguire to head home from a good cross, but England were handed another chance to level from the spot with just a few minutes remaining.

But the captain blazed his penalty over the bar, with the 2018 champions going on to seal their place in the semi-final against Morocco.
