Keith Webb's dreams of guiding England to glory in the cerebral palsy world championships are over.

The Three Lions were thumped 5-0 by holders Russia during this afternoon's quarters at St George's Park. Webb's attentions now turn to Friday's 'third round' match with Argentina – who lost to Brazil 4-0 in their last-eight clash.

The winners will secure a place at next year's Rio Paralympics. The losing side will still be handed one more chance to reach Brazil.
