On Sunday Middlesbrough and Afonso Alves was relegated from the Premier League.
Gareth Southgate’s men needed a big victory and for results to go their way in other matches, but lost away 2-1 to West Ham and now have to play in The Championship next season after 11 years in Premier League.
Afonso Alves missed the match in London through injury along with England winger Stewart Downing.
“The dressing room is a painful place and there is not a lot I can say to the players to lift the spirit. It is very raw at the moment it’s too simplistic to put your finger on one thing. We have to absors the pain tonight, learn the lessons of what has happened and for everyone it will be a difficult night,” Garteh Southgate said after the match.
