Despite the result, there was one famous supporter who managed to raise the spirits of the watching crowd as she took a trip to South Africa.
After seeing her boyfriend Frank Lampard have a perfectly legitimate goal chalked off by the referee, TV presenter Christine Bleakley posed for photos at the Free State Stadium in Bloemfontein on Sunday.
The One Show host, who has just signed a multi-million pound deal with ITV, was among several WAGS who flew out to South Africa to support their men.
Christine was put through a rollercoaster of emotions as England were knocked out of the World Cup after losing 4-1 to Germany.
The pretty brunette, who had said she would not be travelling to South Africa, was joined in the stands by John Terry's wife Toni Poole. Carly Zucker, wife of Joe Cole, is also thought to have made the journey.
