Captain Kane has come out in support of Southgate staying on.

However, the 52-year-old will now go away and make a decision.

Kane said: "I think it has been a really positive tournament.

"Of course, it has ended now in the quarter-final and it felt like we could have done more.

"If you look at the performances and the way the team has been, it has been exciting to watch. I think we have a really bright future.

"We love having Gareth as a manager. We want him to stay for sure but that's his decision. I am sure he will go away and think about that.

"We've got a great team, great young players, players coming into their prime and we've got a Euros not too far away. As much as this hurts, we have to move on and look forward to that.

"He hasn't spoken about it; I haven't spoken to him about it. Like I said, now we are hurting and rightly so.

"He will go away and think about that. That's his decision. He will talk to his family and friends and make that decision. From the players' point of view, we are really happy with the manager."
