It wasn't until the 75th minute that Raheem Sterling ended the 0-0 deadlock with the first goal of the game, swiftly followed 10 minutes later by another corker from Harry Kane to secure the lead.

After the final whistle was blown, the crowds at Wembley went wild - erupting into an emotional rendition of the 'it's coming home' refrain from 'Three Lions'.

In a post-match interview with BBC Sport, England captain Harry Kane said: "To hear Wembley like this was just a moment none of us will ever forget."

Along with the 43,000 fans at Wembley, many people were watching the action unfold on screens up and down the country.

While some opted for the comfort of their own home, others found bigger screens at bars and large venues - including Boxpark in Croydon, where they went WILD.

In footage posted on social media, fans could be seen jumping from their seats and cheering as huge smoke cannons went off on a stage set up by the venue.

Many people embraced as they leapt around, while others excitedly threw their drinks into the air.

England's next Euro 2020 match will take place in Rome at 8pm on 3 July, when they will go against either Sweden or Ukraine.

England boss Gareth Southgate said he'll now have to be the 'party-pooper' as the team prepare for the trip to Italy.

"It's a brilliant afternoon," he told BBC Sport.

"We talked about bringing enjoyment to the nation really and afternoons like this are what that's about.

"The players were absolutely immense, right the way through the team and the fans were as well. Only 40,000, but it's as good an atmosphere as I can remember at Wembley.

"We played extremely well. I think we deserved the win, but I've had to say to them [the players] straight away, 'Look, I'm the party-pooper because if we don't capitalise on that on Saturday now, then it doesn't count for anything.'"
