Didier Drogba has been watching England close up during his time in Russia, and he says the nation should be proud of their efforts.

"Of course it is [disappointing] because you're one step away from playing the final," Drogba said.

"At the same time I think the country needs to be proud of this young generation and what they achieved.

"I was very surprised and happy with the atmosphere around the team and the media supporting the team. All the country were behind them, giving them a chance, not really believing in it but when they got closer you could see everyone was behind them.

"I was disappointed for them but at the same time I was happy that players like Loftus-Cheek, Marcus Rashford and all these young boys managed to perform at the highest level of competition in the world."

He was also impressed with the English fans and the efforts they put in to support their team. 

"I think you have to give credit and respect to the English fans because they brought amazing entertainment," the Ivorian continued.

"I was at the game against Croatia and they were singing all game.

"I'm used to it but I think for some people here it was their first experience of it and trust me, the English fans are one of the best in the world.

"It's really sad that they have to go but this is football."
