Gareth Southgate: "It was a game we needed to win, but we are not out of it.

"It might prove to be costly, but I don't think Saturday's performance is the reason why we are where we are by any means, and it won't be a performance that has cost us in the long run.

"The commitment shown, the way that we played, was commendable from everybody. I couldn't have ask any more of the players in the last two matches.

"Of course, it's frustrating for everybody because the games are running out and you need to win.

"But I have got to be realistic about things and Saturday's was a performance I would back my players to the hilt on."
