The bitterness of disappointment. It's no disgrace to be eliminated at this stage of the knock-out phase. You may have been the surprise package or the underdog that has already given the opposition a good run for their money and surprised many during the tournament. But in the end, you've pitted yourself against an opponent that is just too much stronger than you - maybe even the host nation itself? Or perhaps your team was also one of the favourites but was just stopped in its track by an unstoppable side that turned out to be the eventual winners of the tournament.
Both these cases applied to the England side, when they were knocked out by eventual winners Brazil in World Cup 2002 and eliminated by host nation Portugal in Euro 2004.
Anyway, you can bow out of the tournament with your heads held up high. Grit, determination and finesse can only get you thus far. Maybe a bit more luck or tactical cunning would have seen you progress further. Take comfort though - many other great sides can't clear this hurdle either......
