It seems like there wasn't a soul in the whole of England that didn't go absolutely stark raving mad last night when the Three Lions actually WON on penalties.
In a tense match against Colombia that went into extra time and penalties, England finally beat their rivals, meaning they've now qualified for the World Cup 2018 quarter-finals.
Now, England have a strong and noble history of crashing out of tournaments in penalty shoot outs. They came in 1990, 1998, 2006, and 2018. Up until last night, England lost them all.
Needless to say, when we finally did win one, people completely lost it.
