Fans gathered in Trafalgar Square during the semi-final and were sent into raptures after England equalised against Denmark.
When Raheem Sterling’s shot flew into the net at Wembley, those in the fan zone roared loudly, jumped onto the tables, and threw their beers in the air.
They began chanting “Come on England” and “It’s coming home.”One fan, Carl Afinwayo, 23, from Croydon, south London, told the PA news agency: “Oh my word, it’s insane, we needed that – we needed to equalise. “Sterling has had a great tournament as well, he should be knighted!”
