What a night! England boss Gareth Southgate is embraced by his wife as millions of jubilant fans wake up with sore heads after celebrating their FIRST EVER World Cup penalty shootout – and start preparing for Saturday’s quarter-final

  • Millions across the country partied into the night and many England fans woke up with sore heads today
  • Tickets for Sweden quarter final selling for almost 15 times the lowest price of official tickets

More than 23.8million watched England’s historic win over Colombia last night – 5million more than saw Harry and Meghan marry – as World Cup fever grips the country today. 

Three-quarters of all people watching TV in the UK last night tuned in to ITV for the big game, which is the second most-watched match in history.

England’s players celebrated the big win by taking to social media with Jesse Lingard calling family from the Moscow pitch to say: ‘No mum, I’m not coming home. It’s…’.

Millions of fans at home and around the world celebrated wildly into the night after seeing the team win its first ever World Cup penalty shoot-out and today declared: ‘Bring on Sweden’.

England’s win was all the more extraordinary after they conceded an equaliser with almost the last kick of the game sending the last-16 match into extra time. 

They then went behind in the penalty shoot-out after Jordan Henderson’s miss but an incredible one handed save by goalkeeper Jordan Pickford turned the match.

Then a winning spot kick from Eric Dier sent millions of emotionally exhausted supporters into hysterics. Back home jubilant fans flooded the streets to celebrate, climbing lamp posts, stopping traffic and even setting off fireworks.

Many tweeted today that they were going to work with headaches with one fan saying: ‘Are 75% of the country hungover this morning? #ItsComingHome’.

Harry Kane, Jamie Vardy, Jack Butland, Kyle Walker and Marcus Rashford all took to social media to express their joy and relief after the final whistle in Moscow.  

Jesse Lingard posted a photo of him talking on the phone while on the pitch, accompanied by the amusing caption: ‘No mum, I’m not coming home. It’s…’ – a nod to England’s beloved anthem Three Lions.

Gareth Southgate’s team will now face Sweden in the quarter final on Saturday at 3pm – England’s first for 12 years – with more than 20million people expected to watch.

The national side’s first knockout win in 12 years and only the second shootout win in eight attempts, along with a quarter final draw against Sweden, had many supporters believing ‘football’s coming home’.

Kensington Palace tweeted the team congratulations from the Duke of Cambridge, signing the tweet W.

The apparently personal message from the president of the Football Association said: ‘I couldn’t be prouder of @england – a victory in a penalty shootout! You have well and truly earned your place in the final eight of the £worldcup? ?and you should know the whole country is right behind you for Saturday! Come on England! W.’

Former England striker Gary Lineker tweeted: ‘Football. There is nothing like it. Nothing.’

Fellow former Three Lions star Alan Shearer simply said: ‘Yesssssssss boys yeeesss yes yes £RUSSIA-2018 @England.’

The country watched in disbelief last night as the miracle of Moscow saw England go through to the quarter finals of the World Cup.

After Colombia’s equaliser in the final stages of the game and goalless extra time, the nation’s heart sank as the match went to dreaded penalties.

Just minutes from defeat goalkeeper Jordan Pickford became a national hero after skilfully saving Carlos Bacca’s effort.

As a result the Three Lions booked a place in Saturday’s quarter-final when they will play Sweden in Samara.

The familiar curse of England losing on penalties seemed once again on the cards when Liverpool’s Jordan Henderson saw his spot kick saved.

But failure then followed from Colombia’s Mateus Uribe who crashed his effort on to the crossbar.

Pickford then produced a crucial save when he kept out Bacca’s effort.

In front of a capacity 45,000 Spartak Stadium it was then left to Tottenham Hotspur’s Eric Dier to step up.

He planted his effort past Arsenal’s goalkeeper David Ospina to win the shoot-out 4-3.

Tottenham player Kieran Trippier said after the shoot-out: ‘I thought we played really well in the first half and for their goal, it was a mistake by myself. I was gutted. I keep going on about the spirit of the team, we carried on, we believed and in the shoot-out, we have some great takers. We practised and practised and it paid off.’

Earlier the team had victory snatched from their grasp when the South Americans scored a 93rd minute equaliser to cancel out captain Harry Kane’s second-half penalty.

His strike made him the tournament’s leading scorer with six goals – not counting a seventh effort he bagged during the penalty shoot-out.

      Substitute Eric Dier was the man who slotted home the decisive penalty which helped ease 28 years of pain from the penalty spot for the ‘Three Lions.’ 

      The Tottenham midfielder would have been acutely aware that England has been eliminated from six major tournaments – three World Cups and three European Championships – on penalty kicks.

      The ‘Three Lions’ have been beaten in five previous penalty shoot-outs. The losing famously began in Euro 96 – held in England – when the current coach Gareth Southgate was the man who missed the vital spot kick.

      But this time Southgate had a wry smile after bringing in specialist sports pyschologists to the current training camp to help the players deal with the pressures of penalties.

      Southgate may even have thought ‘ here we go again’ after Jordan Henderson missed England’s third kick last night.

      But Colombia’s Uribe hit the crossbar and Bacca’s penalty was saved by keeper Jordan Pickford last night in a game that ended just before midnight.

      It was then left to Eric Dier to convert the vital fourth penalty and win a shoot-out for the first time for almost thirty years.

      The England players sealed victory despite boos, cat-calls and jeers from Colombia’s huge 10,000 strong support last night.

      And their wives , girlfriends and families went through agony as their men played for a quarter-final place.

      Harry Kane’s fiancee celebrated his first penalty goal with an Instagram post saying ‘balls of steel’.

      Kate Goodland, 25, shared a photo of Kane on her TV screen after he scored our opening goal, with an England flag emoji.

      Her Instagram story was posted as she cheered the Three Lions from the UK while preparing to welcome the couple’s second child.

      In the cauldron of noise in the stadium, Jack Butland’s fiancee Annabel Peyton was alongside Jamie Vardy’s wife Rebekah, 36, Harry Maguire’s girlfriend Fern Hawkins, Kieran Trippier’s wife Charlotte and Jordan Pickford’s fiancee Megan Davison.

      The group posed for their own ‘team’ line up at their hotel before the match.

      Later Trippier paid tribute to the 15-strong group of family and friends who have cheered him all the way in Russia.

      They include his father Chris, brothers Chris, Curtis and Kelvin – known by his mum’s name of Lomax during his playing career – and friends Oliver Hawley and Ryan McDonald.

      The Harry Maguire family following in the stadium last night included his parents Zoe and Alan, brothers Laurence and Joe – also professional footballers- and sister Daisy.

      Now the group ravel travel to Samara to see them in action against Sweden on Saturday .

      Once there they will no doubt go through all the emotion again.

      Manager Gareth Southgate described the dramatic victory as ‘fantastic’ and added: ‘I think we deserved it, as well. We played so well in the 90 minutes. We’ve shown incredible resilience to come back from huge disappointment at the final whistle.

      ‘It’s a huge credit all players and every member of staff.

      ‘Shootouts are tough but we talked long and hard about owning the process. We kept calm. Again, great credit to all our staff and all the players who’s taken it on board. We got our rewards tonight … We looked at individual technique and how we needed to be as a team.

      ‘This was special but I want us to go on now. Sweden is another team we have a poor record against. We’ve underestimated them for years. They’re brilliant at what they do.’

      Six Colombian players were booked during the match and asked about provocation England suffered the coach added:

      ‘We didn’t rise to it, which was brilliant. There were a couple of occasions when we did. But overall it was exceptional.’  

      Jordan Pickford made history once more last night as he helped the Three Lions to their first-ever World Cup penalty shootout win – as his childhood sweetheart cheered him on from the stands.

      Pickford’s heroics, including an incredible save of Carlos Bacca’s effort, capped a thrilling 4-3 win over Colombia that set up a quarter final match with Sweden on Saturda.

      One fan certain to be there is Megan Davison, Pickford’s girlfriend, who had roared him to success in Moscow last night, alongside the other WAGs.

      He was 16 and she 14 when they met as pupils at St Robert of Newminster Catholic School in Washington, Tyne and Wear.

      University of Sunderland graduate Megan has been with Jordan ever since and they now live together in Cheshire’s ‘Golden Triangle’ between Wilmslow, Alderley Edge and Prestbury.

      Pickford, who built his reputation playing for Sunderland, now earns £90,000 a week at Everton, and is the most expensive British keeper in history.

      ‘Instagram addict’ Megan, now 22, often posts pictures of herself enjoying champagne and cocktails on beaches around the world.

      Pickford and his team mates were jubilant after the win, rushing over to their loved ones after the tense shoot out.

      Fans thought it was all over when England’s Jordan Henderson missed his shot, but an error from Mateus Uribe and superb save by Jordan Pickford sealed the win.

      Alastair and Gillian Robertson, who moved to Moscow from Sevenoaks, in Kent, for work 18 months ago, spoke of their delight at seeing the hoodoo lifted.

      Mr Robertson, 44, said: ‘If England can win a penalties for the first time in I don’t know how many years – 50 years of hurt, we win on penalties then we can go all the way.

      ‘And the next round Sweden, all respect to Sweden it’s going to be a great game but I think our boys will step up.’

      Barney Corkhill, 26, who is originally from Bath but lives in Peckham, south-east London, agreed.

      He said: ‘At full time I was telling people around me, ‘Yes we are going to win on penalties’ – I didn’t believe it.

      ‘I actually predicted we would get knocked out to Colombia in the last 16 so I was already worried.

      ‘It’s coming home, isn’t it?

      ‘This round is looking very nice for us – Sweden is the best chance and then hopefully Russia get through and we play them in the semi-final.

      ‘Russia-England semi-final would be brilliant out here. I think people would be worried about coming out because of the trouble, but from what I’ve seen, there won’t be any trouble.

      ‘And then we beat Brazil in the final and it’s home – it is easy.’

      Brendan Collins, 30, described the match as an ’emotional rollercoaster’.

      ‘We won and to win on penalties was probably a massive boost to the ego,’ Mr Collins, who is originally from Manchester but has lived in Stavropol for 18 months and Russia on and off for five years, said.

      ‘When it went to penalties, we had a lot of people around us like, ‘hmmm’.

      ‘But it’s broken the curse now, it’s coming home.

      ‘I think given the penalties have broken the curse, we’re going all the way – 2-1 in the final against France.’

      Jay Kumar, 55, from Northolt, west London, and his friend Johnny Rai, 59, from Hayes, west London, had to settle for watching the game in a bar packed with Colombia fans near the Spartak Stadium.

      Inside the arena, the lowest number of England fans since the Tunisia game – officially numbering 2,225 – were drowned out by their rivals until after the game, when the players went over to take selfies and share the special moment with them.

      England are now joint second favourites alongside France to win the tournament at just 4/1, according bookmakers Ladbrokes.

      Brazil remain favourites at 11/4, while Harry Kane is odds-on at 1/4 to bring home the coveted Golden Boot.

      Jessica Bridge, of Ladbrokes, said: ‘We might as well hand over the keys to the company now.’

      Partying from Manchester to Moscow! England fans erupt in rapture as their team FINALLY wins a World Cup penalty shootout

      By Shekhar Bhatia in Moscow and Bridie Pearson-Jones for MailOnline

      England football supporters were put through a spectrum of emotion as they roared their team to the narrowest of World Cup last-16 victories from more than 1,500 miles away.

      The passion on the pitch in the Russian capital was replicated at fan zones across England, as substitute Eric Dier’s decisive spot-kick in the penalty shoot-out sent the Three Lions through – and fans into raptures.

      Earlier, skipper Harry Kane’s second-half penalty against a dogged Colombia side saw the team come within seconds of setting up a quarter-final tie with Sweden on Saturday afternoon.

      But a stoppage-time equaliser from Colombia’s Yerry Mina put paid to England’s hopes for a steady passage to the next round, and the mood back home became much more subdued. 

      In Russia, fans who watched the game live were ‘overjoyed’ with the result.

      Charmain Christie, 23, of Ripon, Yorkshire said outside the ground: ‘I thought we had blown it when they scored to equalise.

      ‘I thought it’s never on our fortune and it was going to be a sad night again. But the team were excellent and didn’t give up. The penalties were amazing. So exciting and we did it finally. 

      ‘I’m definitely going to Samara for the quarter final with my dad Ced who’s with me. We just couldn’t go home now.   England is going all the way to the final!’  

      Maxine Thomson of Harlow, Essex told MailOnline: ‘It’s no heartbreak and more like a heart attack. It was so nerve jangling.

        ‘I had the feeling we would win without extra time when we scored. When they equalised I knew it would go to penalties. 

        ‘I had high hopes we would win on penalties. But I wasn’t sure because of our record and Colombia is such a good team. But now we are through we just to have win It. ‘ 

        Technician Dave Long 54, from Southampton was on crutches as he left the ground having Ruptured his Achilles in an accident.

        Property developer Terry Comitte of Romford, Essex, said: ‘I thought I was gonna have a heart attack during the penalties. 

        ‘My legs went and I thought your definitely going to lose after they scored in the 91st minute and then he went to penalties.But we can go on from here today and win the World Cup. 

        ‘I was only disappointed with the small number of England fans. I bet they will all want to turn up on Saturday after the quarter-final against Sweden now.’ 

        Aaron Griggs also of Romford said: ‘England do that to you and they like making you live on your nerves. 

        ‘But we put a lot of ghosts to bed tonight and proved that we can score penalties and we can deal with the pressure. ‘I cant wait for the quarter-final now… this could be our time.’

        ‘There were two great footballing countries in this stadium tonight and it’s a shame that both can’t go through. But good luck to England.’ 

        On home soil million of Brits watched the game as it was broadcast on ITV. 

        Joe O’Neill, 27, of Hastings, who was cheering on his home nation – winners of the 1966 World Cup – from a huge screen on Brighton beach, said: ‘I thought it was all over just before Colombia scored. I was so upset, I felt quite deflated.

        ‘When the screen cut out I thought this was a classic English thing to happen. But then when we won the penalties that was the best moment in the history of English football.

        He was one of more than 2,200 people to have piled onto Brighton beach to watch the match on the Luna Beach Cinema big screen.

        Fans wearing replica shirts chanted ‘football’s coming home’, the refrain which has long been adopted as an unofficial national anthem for the England football team, at various points during the match, most notably after Spurs striker Kane’s opener and Dier’s cool decider.

        There were cheers and celebrations from a small number of Three Lions fans inside Lost Rivers in Elephant and Castle in south London where, just like in Moscow’s Spartak Stadium, the majority of those watching were supporting Colombia.   

        Maxine Thomson of Harlow, Essex, said it felt like ‘a heart attack. It was so nerve jangling, but she added ‘ I am ecstatic. I thought we’d need the penalties. But it is an amazing feeling to think we won on penalties!’

        Football fans who had packed onto a specially built grandstand in the beer garden of the Railway Tavern pub in Dereham, Norfolk, erupted with cheers as Dier scored England’s winning penalty against Colombia.

        People hurled plastic cups of beer in the air as hundreds jumped around and chanted ‘It’s coming home’.

        Mark Rock, 25, who lives in Ashill, near Dereham, said: ‘It was good, brilliant, fully deserved, we go through on penalties, finally!’

        Asked how far he thinks England will go, he said: ‘All the way, it’s coming home!’

        England fans were less outnumbered in Times Square, Newcastle, where the 2,000-odd crowd was overwhelmingly and unapologetically partisan. Beer sprayed high into the blue Tyneside sky as Kane scored England’s spot-kick.

        And supporters were even spotted celebrating in New York City, where footage emerged from Twitter user @OneGFB of fans reacting to the latest win.

        But joy turned to anxiety and gave way to despair as Colombia equalised in injury time. Fans fell to the floor on Brighton beach, and there were similar scenes in Newcastle.

        Elsewhere, the masses of Colombia fans in Elephant and Castle’s Lost Rivers screamed as they drew level. Beer was sent cascading over those watching, and fans stood on pool tables and stools to share their delight.

        Among the crowd, a baby wearing a miniature Colombia shirt was held up next to a replica World Cup trophy. But it was not to be for Colombia, as England partied.

        Now, Southgate’s side will face Sweden on Saturday.

        The teams will battle for a place in the semis at Samara Arena, which has a capacity of 44,918, as temperatures are set to climb as high as 86F (30C) during the game. The game marks the first time that Sweden have made it to a World Cup quarter final since 1994.

              Sweden and England  will meet in the quarter-finals of the 2018 World Cup after being victorious in their round of 16 clashes.

              Andreas Granqvist and Co defeated Switzerland 1-0 in their round of 16 clash after Emil Forsberg scored in the second-half to secure their quarter-final spot.
