No one wants to lose a World Cup final. You are so close to victory, tantalisingly close to lifting the famous trophy and putting a star on your jersey forever.

However, regardless of the result, you have made it to the pinnacle of international football, and you will always have those memories.

Just as England and Belgium found out during the week, it’s much worse to lose in the semi-finals. No one remembers you.

To test that theory and before Gareth Southgate’s Three Lions take on Belgium for the honour of finishing third, we ask you to wrack your brain and pick out every team to lose a semi-final since 1994 when Brazil went on to lift the trophy in the Rose Bowl in Los Angeles.

How good is your memory, you have minutes to name all 14 teams. We’ve already given you two.
