A Credit To Their Country – 15 Tweets Summing Up The Pride Of A Nation As We Bow Out Of The Euros
Heartbreaking. But man, we did ourselves proud.
The dream is over – but what a fortnight we've had.
Moments we'll remember forever, and a team that made us absolutely beam with pride as a nation – we fought the good fight, and our team can come home with their heads held high.
Just look at what Twitter's been saying...
