England's World Cup campaign may be all but over, but they still have much to play for in their final match against Costa Rica on Tuesday, insists Jordan Henderson.

Successive 2-1 defeats to Italy and Uruguay in Brazil meant the Three Lions suffered a premature elimination from the competition, despite displaying signs of promise in both matches.

England will wrap up their tournament in their final Group D game against surprise package Costa Rica - and Henderson is adamant it's a contest they won't be treating lightly.

"We'll be approaching the game the same way we have the other two," said the Liverpool midfielder. "That's what we'll look to do - we'll not prepare any different because we're out of the competition.

"We've got to go out and finish on a high - or as high as possible - and get a win. I don't want to be going home having lost all three games.

"We'll be going out to win and to show people just how much we do really care and give everybody back home some enjoyment in the final game."

Henderson concedes there is an air of disappointment lingering within the England camp as they prepare to return home earlier than they'd have hoped to.

However, the 24-year-old feels they can take some solace in certain aspects of their performances against Italy and Uruguay.

"Everybody's obviously disappointed and down because we're going home far too early," added Henderson.

"So it's not a great mood, but at the same time it's a time where everybody needs to stick together, stay strong and focus on that.

"It's been really disappointing and I'm sure there'll be days, whether it's in a week or in a month, or even in a few months, when you'll wake up and it'll come back into your head and you'll be really disappointed again.

"But at the same time, what doesn't kill you makes you stronger and you've just got to keep going and learn from the experience as best you can.

"It's hard to sum it up - I'm sure everybody at home is feeling really down. For us here, being a part of it and being a part of the actual team that can go on and show what we're about, we feel as though we've let a lot of people down.

"But I think we've shown people how well we can play in a big tournament with young players coming through the system and getting the chance to play on the world stage. I thought a lot of them have done really well.

"Hopefully we can gel together, stay strong together, and in the future have many more happy memories."
