  1. Goodbye

    Right, that's it from me. Thanks for your England teams in 2022 and favourite moments of the World Cup. I hope I've helped with the withdrawal symptoms of the World Cup being over.

    You can console yourselves with the fact that the Premier League season starts on Friday, 10 August and, in the meantime, there will be plenty of transfer gossip and signings to get you through.

    To finish, i'll leave you with this...

  2. What about Varane for Ballon d'Or?

    If a player had been a massive part of his side's won the Champions League and World Cup, there's no doubt he'd be one of the favourites for the Ballon d'Or - unless he was a defender.

    France centre-back Raphael Varane has helped Real Madrid to Champions League glory and France to success at the World Cup but there hasn't been much noise of him winning the coveted world player-of-the-year award.

    Indeed, the last defender to win it was ex-Italy captain Fabio Cannavaro back in 2006.

  5. Your next stop will be Gareth Southgate station

    A London Underground station has been temporarily named after England's football manager.

    Southgate Tube station was rebranded Gareth Southgate station from Monday morning for 48 hours, after the squad finished fourth in the World Cup.

    It was England's best result since 1990 when they also lost in the semi-final.

    "We're delighted to be able to show our appreciation to Gareth and the team by renaming the station in his honour," Transport for London said.

  6. Southgate wants more chances for players

    Premier League managers need to be "brave enough" to give young England players a chance in their first teams, says Three Lions boss Gareth Southgate.

    England flew back into Birmingham on Sunday having finished fourth in the World Cup in Russia.

    The squad selected by Southgate was England's third-youngest in the tournament's 88-year history.

    "We now have players who I think can stand on their own two feet in the Premier League," said Southgate.

    Si's Insights: My favourite moment? The second half of Belgium v Japan. Class and a tactical switch told but not before a massive scare where Japan fearlessly took on their more illustrious opponents at their own game.

  9. Post update

    Chris Waddle

    Ex-England winger on BBC Radio 5 live

    France have not been the best to watch but they know how to win football matches. They have managed the tournament very well.

    You have to say Didier Deschamps' gameplans have been great without being entertaining. He has won the World Cup and that's what he came here to do.

  10. 'Is he being put in the right positions?'

    Rio Ferdinand

    Former England defender on BBC One

    He has had a tough season in terms of the media and people from within the game calling him out in a Manchester United shirt.

    It's down to Jose now to unlock this Pogba we saw at the World Cup because he was responsible, he stood up to a lot of hard tests in midfield and was a talisman for this team.

    For some reason the jigsaw puzzle hasn't been put together properly in a Manchester United shirt.

    The way the team plays, I think 'are they getting the ball into him in the right areas?' He's not receiving the ball quickly enough.

    Is he being put in the right positions? These are the questions a manager has to work out.

  11. Mourinho's Pogba problem

    Paul Pogba's form for France at the World Cup has been a massive part of his country winning the tournament.

    His goals, passing and tracking back to help his defence have all been key but in contrast to his struggles at Manchester United.

    The 25-year-old joined United for a then world record £89m in August 2016 but fell out of favour at times during the 2017-18 campaign.

    He was left out of the starting line-up by manager Jose Mourinho for both legs of United's Champions League last-16 defeat by Sevilla.

    But can Mourinho now get the best out of the 25-year-old? We shall wait and see.

  14. CR7 Day at Juve

    Just to digress for a moment, here's the latest on Cristiano Ronaldo day at Juventus as they show off their new signing to the world. He'll be chatting later at a news conference but is going through a medical at the moment with a rather snazzy vest.

    (Aren't you supposed to do the medical before the signing?)

  17. Future Ballon d'Orer?

    Rio Ferdinand

    Former England defender on BBC One

    Kylian Mbappe is the guy who will be standing up on that Ballon d'Or podium in years to come. Easy.

    I hope my old club (Manchester United) are chasing him. He has that connection with Paul Pogba too.

    There is already maturity beyond his years.

  18. A new star is born

    Phil McNulty

    BBC Sport chief football writer in Moscow

    France striker Kylian Mbappe's thrilling mixture of electric pace, brilliant finishing and youthful exuberance means he can stand alongside Brazil's Neymar as a future poster boy for football.

    And, for one so young, he has a remarkably mature temperament. Mbappe was smiling broadly as he sang the French national anthem 'La Marseillaise' before kick-off - and to twist a line from that rousing song, he has everything to be the master of his destiny.

    Mbappe is at the beginning of a remarkable career and with his stellar performances here against Argentina, scoring twice in France's 4-3 win, and in the World Cup final, he simply confirmed the game's newest global star was born.

  19. Magical Mbappe

    One of the highlights of the World Cup has been France striker Kylian Mbappe. He's only 19 but what a player.

    He looks like he can take over from Lionel Messi, 31, and Cristiano Ronaldo, 33, as one of the best players in the game when their powers start to fade.

    Mbappe scored his side's fourth goal as France beat Croatia 4-2 in the World Cup final in Moscow, and won the tournament's best young player award.
