England’s World Cup dreams have been shattered by the foot of Croatia’s Mario Mandzukic, who scored an extra-time winner to prohibit England from advancing to its first World Cup Final in 52 years.

After advancing to the semis for the first time since 1990, the people of England could almost taste the Cup, evident in them displaying some of the most raucous communal celebrations of any sport in recent memory.

The hysteria across the pond was tangible, me fans let the success get to their head–or thigh, arm, ass, or neck.

I was preparing to shit on every one of these people who prematurely etched a championship tattoo on their bodies for eternity, but the man below, named Jamie Richardson, offered another way to look at it. He told Daily Star:

“It’s better to have believed and lost than to have never believed at all.

“I have no regrets. I’ve woken up extremely proud to be English today.

“All them boys will be coming home heroes. They’ve done the entire country extremely proud.

“Gareth Southgate has been carrying this weight around with him since 1996 and now he can come home knowing he gave us something to believe in.”

Here are some other gems.

Keep your head up England, at least you made the World Cup. WOMP WOMP.
