Jamie Carragher: 'The buzz when they come back - those lads, manager and staff will realise what they've done for the country'
• Harry Kane's miss, with England a goal ahead against Croatia on Wednesday night, proved the "defining moment" for Carragher.
• Carragher credited Southgate with restoring a connection between fans and players not felt since Euro '96 in a manner reminiscent of a club team.
"We now know that we've got players who can play at this level, we've got a manager we can really believe when he speaks.
"We can get behind his decisions, how he wants the team to play - it all bodes well for the future. It's just whether this opportunity will arise again where you have a great run.
"But the buzz when they come back - those lads, manager and staff will realise what they've done for the country because when you're away sometimes it can be difficult to understand the feeling about what's going on at home."
