Top five conclusions: Costa Rica 0-0 England
1. Best head-to-head record against Costa Rica in the group: that’s something you can hold on to and tell the grandkids about.
2. Finishing with Frank Lampard and Steven Gerrard was a nice touch. Like a piece of ironic commentary of England’s recent history by Roy Hodgson.
3. Let’s hope Louis Van Gaal can develop Chris Smalling and Phil Jones. They need to turn into proper players in their proper positions next season.
4. Jack Wilshere needs to hit the gym. Raheem Sterling has shown him you can be slight, play for England but avoid getting bowled over every time an opponent comes within a couple of metres of you.
5. Two losses and a draw that stank out this most enjoyable of World Cups. That’s England, signing off.
