Gary Cahill: 'England exit my lowest point'

England defender Gary Cahill says that the Three Lions' dismal World Cup campaign is the lowest point of his career.

Gary Cahill has admitted that England's early World Cup elimination ranks as the lowest point of his career.

Successive 2-1 defeats to Italy and Uruguay mean that the Three Lions will exit the tournament after just two of their Group D encounters.

It is the first time that England have failed to progress from the group stages of a World Cup for 58 years, and the 28-year-old says that it is "very tough" to accept.

"A few weeks ago it was one of the highlights of my career and a couple of weeks down the line it's one of the lowest points," Cahill told reporters.

"It's the worst feeling I've had as a player. There's nothing more I can say. It's very tough to take, football can be cruel sometimes."

England finish off their campaign by facing already-qualified Costa Rica on Tuesday.
