Goal samples reactions from the land of the Black Stars on Saturday's third place playoff

In the end, the World Cup did not "come home", neither did silver or bronze. 

On Saturday, England ended their campaign in Russia with a defeat to a superior Belgian side in the third place playoff at Saint Petersburg. 

Thomas Meunier and captain Eden Hazard were the heroes of the day as their goals in either half secured a 2-0 victory at Krestovsky Stadium to deny The Three Lions a medal. 

Ghanaians were among the many followers of the game, a classic curtain raiser to Sunday's finale between 1998 champions France and 1998 bronze medalists Croatia. 

Below are some social media reactions on the match:

 

 

I'm happy for Belgium. They deserved it more than England. #WorldCup
