MANCHESTER, United Kingdom - Joe Root said he was"bitterly disappointed" after England slipped to defeat in the fourth Test against Australia on Sunday despite a defiant effort to keep their Ashes dream alive.

"I thought the way we fought today, the character we showed, every single one of them can be proud of that today. "I think it's been a good Test wicket, an important toss to win, and we were not quite at our best in the first innings. We fought hard and bravely throughout the game, but we're in the position we are now."
