Several of the semi-final team can expect regular club matches but the issue facing others is summed up by Chelsea’s Nathaniel Chalobah, who in the past four seasons has played almost as many times for England as for his clubs
The morning after the night before, it was left to Nathaniel Chalobah to sum up just how it feels to lose to Germany in a penalty shootout in the semi-finals of a major international tournament.
“7 years playing together through the England ranks with @NathanRedmond22. True winner in my eyes,” wrote the Chelsea midfielder on Twitter. “Couldn’t have got where we did if it weren’t for you bro so keep your head up. We win as a team & lose as a team. So proud of the squad. Bigger and better things to come.”
