"Can one put down hecklers in one’s own head? I suppose that’s a bit the battle of life."

Comedian Stephen Fry summed up the mood of the nation when he tweeted: "Alright, football gods, I’ll wait another 55 years then. But I warn you, unless biotech comes up with something impressive, I’ll fairly certainly be dead … Bah, grr, poo and bother.”

Prince William, who attended the game at Wembley Stadium with his wife Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge and their seven-year-old son Prince George - admitted it was "heartbreaking" to see the team lose 3-2 on penalties but sent a positive message to Gareth Southgate's side after congratulating the winners.
