Fans all say same thing as ‘gutted’ England hero Harry Maguire posts emotional message to fans after France loss
ENGLAND hero Harry Maguire has posted an emotional message to fans after the devastating World Cup quarter-final loss to France.
The Three Lions missed out on a semi-final date with dark horses Morocco with the 2-1 defeat to the world champions.
Aurelien Tchouameni opened the scoring early on in the first half.
Kane grabbed the equaliser from the penalty spot but Olivier Giroud later restored France’s lead with an expert header.
But with six minutes left on the clock, England were handed the chance to draw level, again from the penalty spot.
This time, Kane made a mess of his effort and sent his shot flying over the crossbar sending England packing.
Maguire, who has been magnificent under Gareth Southgate for the Three Lions, has taken to social media in an emotional message.
The Manchester United ace said: “Last night hurt. Absolutely gutted.
“Special thanks to Gareth and you amazing fans who kept belief in me.
“I love my country and I hope we made you proud.”

And fans are all saying the same thing: We love you.
One responded: “You’re a legend mate, keep your head held high you and the boys made England and so many others proud.”
Another said: “I just love u.”
Maguire’s standout performances in an England shirt in Qatar come after he was booed by Three Lions fans earlier this year before the 3-0 win over Ivory Coast.
The defender hasn’t had the best of luck at club United and has found himself out of Erik ten Hag’s team.
Some fans felt Maguire should have lost his place but Southgate kept his faith in the defender who has NEVER let him down.
And he has more than repaid that faith by being arguably the best defender in the entire tournament.
Maguire was one of the first to leave England’s base in Doha on Sunday alongside Jack Grealish and Phil Foden, with some of the other players departing soon after.
His first game back for United could be on December 21 against Burnley in the EFL Cup.
