He said: "None of us know if this is as good as it gets".
'We've made a difference to people's happiness the last few weeks'.
Southgate admits it has been tough to come to terms with Wednesday's semi-final heartbreak at the hands of Croatia but he insists motivation will not be a problem this weekend.
"Emotionally it has been a hard few days but the players are incredible". If we were to hold a tournament in ping pong all of us would be rooting for that single player.
AFTER THEIR extra-time defeat by Croatia, Premier League executive chairman Richard Scudamore has paid tribute to the England team for having reached their first FIFAWorld Cup semi-finals in 28 years.

The English team were dumped out of the ongoing World Cup in Russian Federation by Croatia. "And Belgium have beaten us once already so we'd like to address that".
Southgate added the perception surrounding England's national team has changed.
"We owe it as much to ourselves as to our nation to finish well".
"We've set a standard in how we work, a standard in the way that we play and we want to aspire to that level every time we come out and every time we train. There's an energy and connection that's back".

"There was just a period in the second half and it looked like we had the lead and don't want to give it away rather than we keep playing and we just lost a bit of composure in that period and Croatia's experience really told".

The widespread optimism is a far cry from the reaction England received following their Euro 2016 exit, when the team and then-coach Roy Hodgson were criticised heavily for their underwhelming performance in the competition.
"It was not my decision [to rule out a parade] but I agree with the decision", he said. "For them to still be singing when we're seeing friends and families, chanting our names and singing the manager's name, is completely different", he said.
