Tottenham and England star Dele Alli thanks fans.

London Ambulance Service published images of the damage to the vehicle.

Police are aware of the damage to the auto, a London Ambulance Service spokesman confirmed.

Chants of "Football's Coming Home" as well as quite a large quantity of beer, filled the air as celebrations at England's 2-0 win carried long into the night. He branded such behaviour a "total disgrace".

Yesterday's match was held on the same weekend as the London Pride Parade, Wireless Festival and the British Summertime festival in Hyde Park.

In Nottingham, a number of arrests were made for public order offences after a civilian auto was smashed and a group of men stood on a bus shelter, among other behaviour.

Fans had descended at Clapham Junction and were clapping and cheering when the man made a decision to climb on top of the bus.

But the London Ambulance Service reacted with disappointment to the celebrations, saying fans should be "better than this".

The vehicle was left with a completely smashed windscreen and heavy denting to the bonnet, roof and bumper.

If England manage to beat Croatia on Wednesday in the semi-finals, it's likely that Baddiel, Skinner and The Lightning Seeds won't be going anywhere just yet. Czechoslovakia and Yugoslavia advanced to the semi-finals in 1962 without a player aged 26 or over scoring for them.

Tears of joy flowed down the face of Croatia's coach Zlatko Dalic after Ivan Rakitic slotted home the final penalty and emotions ran strong throughout the historical night as Croatia achieved its biggest success on the global stage in the last 20 years.
