29 things people said to make you feel a bit better about England’s World Cup exit
The nation’s suffered a collective hangover, in every sense, after England were knocked out of the World Cup by Croatia.
These 29 things people are saying on Twitter won’t make it go away but they’ll take your mind off it for a bit. Honest.
If anyone says “why did you get carried away?” today tell them politely to “button it”. The wonderful foolish hope is part of the magic so never be ashamed of that.

We are out of the World Cup, the suns gone in and Trump is coming to town. Shall we all just get on the gin?

I just shouted "stop fucking about" at the telly while watching trained athletes at the peak of their game. I am drinking cans in a vest.

In the future, when we tell children there was a summer when it didn't rain at all and a genial man in a waistcoat nearly took us to the World Cup Final, they will think we are drunk. And we will be drunk because: Brexit. 😢 #ENGCRO

Utterly choked, but this young side gave absolutely everything. It’s a huge step forward and they’ll only get better in the future. They can hold their heads high, they did our country proud. Congratulations to Croatia.

Pretty clear that several of the England players deliberately missing chances as they're worried about the possibility of a World Cup win facilitating a hard Brexit. Pickford, bitterly opposed to even a customs union, keeping them in it.

ITV’s commentators are really skirting around the issue that this is all their fault and they shouldn’t be allowed to show England games any more.

The England team and Trump are flying into different airports right ? Bit concerned about potential welcoming mix-ups.
