England can return home proud — Drogba

Former Chelsea and Ivorian striker Didier Drogba says England should be very proud of the way they played during the World Cup.

Many in the England squad are disappointed they did not make the final, having led for much of regular time against Croatia.

They eventually succumbed to a 2-1 defeat, thanks to goals from Ivan Perisic and Mario Mandzukic.

"Of course it is [disappointing] because you're one step away from playing the final," Drogba said during his punditry for the World Cup.

"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."
