England captain Harry Kane insists "this is not the end" for the Three Lions as the squad look ahead to the World Cup after losing the Euro 2020 Final.

The long wait for a major trophy continues for Gareth Southgate's side after a heartbreaking penalty shootout defeat to Italy.

The nation was at a standstill for the Three Lions' biggest match in 55 years and Luke Shaw's early stunner at a rocking Wembley had fans dreaming that football would be coming home rather than going to Rome.

But Italy wrested control of Sunday's final and deservedly levelled through Leonardo Bonucci, with the match going to extra-time and on to spot-kicks after it ended 1-1.

England boss Southgate failed with the key effort in the Euro 96 semi-final loss to Germany and Wembley witnessed another gutting shoot-out loss in the country's first ever European Championship final.

"Last night hurts," Kane tweeted. "It’ll hurt for a long time.

"But we’ve come so far and broken down so many barriers that this is not the end. We win together, lose together and will regroup together for the World Cup.

"Thanks for all your support this summer."
