Baddiel, Skinner and the Lightning Seeds have scored the winning goal in shooting to the top of the Top 40, reaching the number one spot for this week's chart ahead of the semi final on Wednesday.

England have a future star in Harry Maguire, and benefitted from a Jordan Pickford masterclass, but it is too early for the "Football's coming home!" chants, warns RT's Peter Schmeichel.

However, several instances of unruly behaviour from boozy supporters were reported.

While some social media users criticised the fans' actions, others passed it off as harmless banter.

While numerous perpetrators were later identified by police via social media.

"I am proud to make ex-players proud and I am sure it is bringing back memories for them".

The London Ambulance Service was left furious after a minority of supporters jumped on top of the vehicle, denting its bonnet and smashing its windscreen. You are a total disgrace.

"We're delighted with the result, but this has put a big dampener on the celebrations for us: while our officer attended a call nearby, this auto was damaged in Borough High Street during the celebrations after the game, it's now off the road to be repaired", they wrote. "As for our National Football Team. that does make me proud to be English!" he wrote.

However some fans appeared to lose the run of themselves, swamping a branch of the Swedish furniture store.

Fans in Manchester, Nottingham, and Birmingham were also seen climbing on to bus shelters and even roofs of buses and celebrating their football team's win.

"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 to the semi-finals". Heavyweights Belgium and France will meet in St. Petersburg the previous day.
