The England Wags have been consoling their husbands and boyfriends following the Three Lions' loss to Croatia in the World Cup semi-final tonight.

The England squad's wives and girlfriends draped their arms round the players following the 2-1 defeat at the Moscow stadium. 

Players fell to their knees in tears at the final whistle while millions of people watching at home were also left weeping after coming so close to getting to the final.

Fern Hawkins, the long-time girlfriend of defender Harry Maguire, has been preparing for the Three Lions' clash with Croatia by exploring Moscow and dining out with family and friends.

In a series of videos posted to her Instagram, the chartered physiotherapist can be seen riding on a plush train carriage towards Russia's capital and 'taking full advantage' of the refreshments including cheese and wine. 

Other clips show Fern, 21, wandering around Moscow's Red Square and soaking up the atmosphere at the four-star Hartwell Hotel, Presnensky.

The Sheffield beauty has clearly formed a close bond with Harry's 18-year-old sister Daisy, with the pair affectionately calling each other 'sister from another mister'.

And they may become official sisters-in-law soon, after reports that Harry popped the question to Fern last month. 

Fern has been spotted wearing what appeared to be a sizeable rock on her ring finger during during the tournament.

And one jewellery expert believes that Fern's diamond dazzler could be worth almost £40,000.

Aaron Hakimian, senior product manager at celebrity jewellers Le Vian, told MailOnline: 'A ring of this quality would cost in the region of £30,000 to £38,000.'

However, the sizeable sum will be small change for Maguire, who earns £80,000 a week after being snapped up by Leicester City from Hull last year.

The couple have been together since 2011 and regularly post loved-up selfies on social media, with the 25-year-old Foxes defender calling Fern 'my special one'. 

The FA declined to comment when approached by MailOnline. 

Fern has been a regular fixture during England's matches, cheering on Maguire in England's victories over Panama and Tunisia, and giving him a consolatory kiss after following their 0-1 defeat against Belgium.
