England fans are being criticised for storming an Ikea store in Stratford following England's 2-0 victory against Sweden.

Harry Maguire scored the first goal and Dele Alli scored the second, taking the team to the semi-finals against Croatia.

A small group of fans took their celebrations into an Ikea store in Stratford.

Twitter user @KingMo786 uploaded a video of a crowd of England fans descending on the Ikea store. They are seen jumping on beds and pillows as they sing 'it's coming home'.

People are calling for the police to get involved.

However, a statement from the official Ikea Twitter account in response to the above appears to be jovial towards the fans:

We are aware of a small group of fans celebrating the match result in one of our stores. Being both British and Swedish, we were on the edge of our seats during the game and we would like to say ‘grattis’.

(that’s congratulations in Swedish) to the England team for getting through the semi-finals. In celebration, we’ve put one of our nation’s favourite dishes, fish and chips, on offer for just £1. 

Some are saying it's not that serious, they were 'only jumping on some beds'.

However, other England fans don't like how the group handled winning. One said she is 'ashamed' of the video.

In contrast, here's Japan fans cleaning up the Rostov-on-Don stadium after their team lost against Russia:
