Raucous England fans are in dreamland waiting for Wednesday’s next Three Lions clash against Denmark, buoyed by the team’s flawless performance last night in the Euro 2020 quarter-final

Raucous England fans are in dreamland waiting for Wednesday’s next Three Lions clash against Denmark, buoyed by the team’s flawless performance last night in the Euro 2020 quarter-final.

The Danes are all that stands between them and the tournament’s final and an incredible boost for a country that has been ravaged by coronavirus and endless lockdowns. 

Beers were sent flying through the air and one fan even stripped off to his St George’s Cross underwear as revellers went wild at big screen events from London to Newcastle watching the Three Lions destroy Ukraine 4-0 and secure a glorious return to the capital in front 60,000 fans for smart bidet Wednesday’s semi-final.  

It was the two Harrys, Kane and Maguire, who dealt the Ukrainians hammer blow goals just after the start of the second half, making it 3-0, before Jordan Henderson put the cherry on the cake and made it 4-0.

It came after the talisman Kane gave England an early lead when he poked the ball home with just four minutes on the clock after a killer though-ball from Raheem Sterling, who gave another classy performance. 

The lucky few thousand England fans who had made it to Italy celebrated into the early hours in Rome. 

‘It has been the most amazing night,’ said James Curran who had travelled from Prague with two friends for the match.

‘I don’t think anyone in the stadium expected this result. Everyone is in dreamland.’ 

Other stunned supporters struggled to get their words out as they tried to comprehend the team’s achievement. 

Supporter Marc Ghossein said: ‘It’s an amazing feeling.

We have been waiting for this for 25 years now.’

His friend Ellie Mhanna added: ‘England are going to win this year’s Euros for sure. They’ve been consistent and they deserve it.’

When the game ended the festivities continued, firstly inside the fan zone before they were kicked out by security.

Fans later took to the streets of London, partying in Pall Mall, Leicester Square and Piccadilly Circus, excited for the prospect to do it all over again on Wednesday.

And the Duke of Cambridge was most pleased with the team’s ‘top performance’ against Ukraine, tweeting out that he ‘can’t wait for Wednesday’s semi final’ against Denmark as he lauded the team’s ‘clean sheet’ during the match in Rome’s Stadio Olimpico. 

He said: ‘Another top team performance and clean sheet from England tonight.

Well played to Ukraine. Can’t wait for Wednesday’s semi final! Onwards W.’

Prince William – who is president of the Football Association – watched England’s match against Germany in Wembley earlier this week with his wife Kate and their football-mad son Prince George.

But the Cambridges – like thousands of England fans – were unable to travel to Italy for the game on Saturday night because all UK arrivals needed to self-isolate for five days after arriving in Italy – which is on England’s amber list.

Booming chants of ‘We are going to Wembley’ were bellowed out by crowds in England, while in Kyiv, distraught Ukrainians looked on at big screens with tears in their eyes as the two Harrys dealt them a brutal one-two punch. 

The lucky few thousand England fans who had made it to Italy celebrated into the early hours in Rome. 

‘It has been the most amazing night,’ said James Curran who had travelled from Prague with two friends for the match.

‘I don’t think anyone in the stadium expected this result. Everyone is in dreamland.’ 

Steven Langmead almost shouted himself hoarse during the match cheering on the Three Lions.

‘I feel really privileged to have been here.

Always had a feeling we would win, but not by four goals. Bring on the semi-final. I’d love to be at Wembley but will settle for watching it on the TV back home in Spain.’  

Jubilant fans in Trafalgar Square jumped up and screamed with delight, throwing their cups of beer into the air and hugging each other in celebration after Harry Kane opened the scoring after just four minutes.

Supporters at a Manchester fan zone went wild as the goals were rattled in. One fan, who was dressed as a knight, hugged the nearest man next to him as they threw their beers into the air.  

Hairdresser Kim Wilson, 26, of Salford: ‘I can’t believe we have scored two goals one after another.

Everyone is so happy – this place went mental. People are jumping over the place.’  

Supporters in Leicester Square in London were in high spirits, singing and chanting that ‘it’s coming home’.

Trevor Harris, 40, from Watford, said: ‘It’s coming home.

You can hear everyone chanting it. England is England and it’s about time we actually started playing.’

Keira Starr, 19, added: ‘I thought we’d lose, but now I actually think we’ll be in the final.’

However it did turn sour as police officers formed human barricades and tried to disperse the fans.

It led to some clashes with several people detained, although the Met Police has not released any information. 

More than 30 million England supporters are cheering on the national side in their UEFA Euro 2020 quarter final against Ukraine, with travel restrictions preventing tens of thousands of fans descending on Rome. 

Fans at a Manchester fan park went berserk after the England captain scored, with pints being flung into the air and one fan dressed as Gareth Southgate in a waistcoast went wild.

Dad-of-two Rick Hodgson, 32, said: ‘Wow…I can’t believe we have scored so early. 

‘I went mad – this is getting better and better.

‘Gareth is really making us believe and dream we can go all the way.’ 

After the match, England manager Gareth Southgate Gareth called on his ‘ruthless’ heroes to finish the job. 

‘It’s fabulous.

I suppose it’s still sinking in that it’s another semi-final – three in three years,’ he said.

‘We want to go two steps further. I know what will be happening at home. We are now playing with a lot belief and the players can see what’s possible.

‘We still have a long way to go and we are not satisfied.

Tonight is a really enjoyable night for everybody but I’ve got to say I was already thinking about the next challenge before the end of the game.

‘That’s the one for us – we’ve never been to a European Championship final, it’s another opportunity to make history.

‘It’s lovely to see everyone on a Saturday night, beer in hand.

They should enjoy it. It’s been a long year for everyone. I’m chuffed the two performances have brought so much happiness to people.

‘We were ruthless and decisive tonight. It’s fabulous for our country – a semi-final at Wembley. Everyone can really look forward to that – it’s brilliant.’

Having reached the semis of the previous World Cup, victory on Wednesday would book England’s first major tournament final since 1966 – and captain Kane added: ‘It’s where we wanted to be. We set out a vision before the World Cup of what we want to achieve.

We are knocking it off step by step. The World Cup was great but we fell short, we had a good run in the Nations League. We’re in another semi-final.

‘Now it’s about getting over the line, the next step that we have got to do on Wednesday.

‘We have more experience [than 2018]. We’ve been playing for our clubs in big games – Champions League finals, Premier League title races. We’re looking confident. Hopefully we can continue that.

The job is not done yet.

There’s a lot more football to play.’

Following the match, goal-scorer Maguire told the BBC: ‘We have great belief in the dressing room. We got an early goal and they gave us a few problems but second goal settled us and we controlled game from then on,’ he told the BBC.

‘We now have to rest before another big one coming up.

We are not settling for a semi-final – we want to go further.’ 

Former England defender Rio Ferdinand was leading the praise, telling his pundit colleagues: ‘I’ve never seen an England team so composed. That’s the biggest compliment I can pay them.

All the players playing a part – the manager is utilising the squad. They are now hard to play against. They grind you down and ask you questions.’

Both Three Lions supporters who remained in the UK and those who made the journey to Rome have vowed to cheer the national side to victory in tonight’s crunch clash.

Thousands of fans have been piling into the 70,000 capacity Stadio Olimpico as England bid to make their first Euro semi final for more than a quarter of a century. 

Chants of ‘Football’s Coming Home’ have echoed around the approaches to the stadium as captain Harry Kane led his team out in warmups, as England fans outnumbered those from Ukraine 4-1 on the streets of Rome.

As our fans both at home and abroad prepare for tonight’s Euro 2020 quarter final match with Ukraine one message is clear: ‘Trust in Southgate’.

The designated fan zone in London’s Trafalgar Square has started to fill up ahead of England’s match in the Italian capital, and fans were relaxed as the match between Czech Republic and smart bidet Denmark played in the background on two large screens.

And the players’ wives, girlfriends and family members have all posted their messages of support on social media ahead of the titanic match in Rome this evening. 

Expat supporters from Dubai, Switzerland, Spain, Prague and France were among the first arrivals in the historic Italian city today.

More than 300 flew from the UAE – paying £700 for a return ticket – with a further 200 expected to arrive before the evening kick off.

And even German fans in Rome said they will be cheering on England after they were swayed by the passionate support they saw at Wembley when their team was defeated.
