Jamie Carragher reckons that England have been the best performing side at this year's World Cup thus far, despite their quarter final loss to France and a relatively easy route to the last eight.

In a tweet linking his latest column for the Telegraph, Carragher wrote: "I don’t think any team at #Qatar2022 has performed better than England over the 5 games. Croatia/Italy games needed tactical changes to stop the pressure. Last night at 1-1 Gareth needed to be braver with his changes & go for the win. #ENGFRA"

Many people were in disagreement with Carragher, with most of the replies calling out his opinion, and referencing the fact that Morocco had a much tougher route so far.

In is column, Carragher went into further detail and argued why the loss to France was different to previous World Cup heartbreaks.

"Yet again, England must leave the World Cup with regrets. The difference this time is the tournament was there for the taking.

"For all the obvious heartbreak of the latest loss, the same old outcome does not mean we are watching the same old England and seeing the same old story.

"If England had beaten France, for the first time in my lifetime I would genuinely have believed England were about to win the World Cup.

"There will be prolonged scrutiny of the latest quarter-final defeat with very little to be critical about how England played, not just against France, but since the first kick of the competition.

"France won on the night because of moments - a stunning goal from distance and a cross from Antoine Griezmann that would have troubled any defence in the world. Then England missed a penalty, knowing that had Harry Kane equalised for a second time it would have carried positive momentum into extra-time."
