England fell short at Euro 2020, however, Gareth Southgate's men still have a lot to be proud of, and for the first time in over a month, the English players were allowed to celebrate: properly.

Jordan Pickford palmed away Jorginho's penalty to hand England a lifeline and up stepped Arsenal's 19-year-old sensation Bukayo Saka.

Saka, who hadn't foot wrong all tournament, saw his penalty saved - but second place, the Three Lions' best ever result at a Euros, called for celebrations.

Families were reunited with players, who had been kept apart because of a Covid bubble, and captain Harry Maguire even led a conga as England looked back on an incredible month.

England's captain, Maguire was front and centre - still donning his full Three Lions kit - as he led a conga around the Wembley suit.

He was reunited with his fiancee, Fern Hawkins, and other WAGs, including Megan Davison, Rebecca Attwood, and Anouska Santos, were in attendance.

And the WAGs kept track of the evening on their Instagram stories, revealing personalised tables for each player.

After being a regular fixture at England fixtures throughout the tournament, couples were finally able to reunite as songs such as Oasis' 'Don't Look Back in Anger' and Neil Diamond's 'Sweet Caroline' blasted in the background.

Wayne Rooney also made an appearance during the evening.

The current Derby County manager, and Manchester United legend, last appeared at an international tournament when England were embarrassed by Iceland at Euro 2016.

The party proved to be one last night together for the England squad, who all went their separate ways on Monday morning, and back to club duty with the new campaign looming.

Southgate received a jubilant sendoff when he checked out of The Grove hotel this morning on his way back to Harrogate in North Yorkshire.

England had a lot to celebrate in the Wembley suit on Sunday evening; they became the sixth team in history to not concede a goal during the group stages.

And by the time they conceded their first goal, a stunning free-kick from Denmark's Mikkel Damsgaard, the Three Lions had vanquished Germany in a classic.

Southgate's men reached their first final since the 1966 World Cup, and they took the game to the penalties.

It all ended in heartbreak, but it's a step in the right direction heading into the 2022 World Cup.

As the England fans said goodbye to each other in a Wembley Suit on Sunday evening, Marcus Rashford spoke of an 'unbreakable bond'.

The England side will now reunite at the start of September for their World Cup Qualifiers against Hungary, Andorra, and Poland.
