Gareth Southgate says that the disappointment of England's World Cup semi-final defeat "will always be there - until we go on and win something".

In a BBC interview with Dame Jessica Ennis-Hill, manager Southgate said that the Three Lions "weren't quite ready to win" in Russia.

"We had been on a brilliant journey together," he said.

"Maybe we weren't quite ready to win collectively at that moment but there is a platform for us to build on."

The interview will be aired on Tuesday during Sports Personality 2018: A Great Sporting Year (22:45 GMT, BBC One and iPlayer).
