Bukayo Saka's rocket with ten minutes left cancelled out Breel Embolo's opener - as the game went to the dreaded spot kicks.

But it could not have gone any better for England as they won only their third penalty shootout ever, Cole Palmer, Jude Bellingham, Ivan Toney, Saka and Trent Alexander-Arnold were ALL on target.

And Jordan Pickford's save from Manuel Akanji, with a little help from his magic water bottle, was enough to send Gareth Southgate's side into a semi-final with Holland next Wednesday.

As beers flew in the air in pubs and bars across the England, Three Lions stars took the chance to celebrate with their loved ones in the stands of the Dusseldorf Arena.

Hero Saka shared a hug with his partner Tolami Benson.

While captain Harry Kane, who had to be taken off during extra-time after crashing in his own dugout, enjoyed a moment with wife Katie and their daughter.

Kyle Walker, who was switched to the right side of a back three for the clash, was spotted chatting to wife Annie Kilner.

While unused substitute Jarrod Bowen also linked up with his Love Island star girlfriend Dani Dyer, daughter of famous actor Danny Dyer.

Conor Gallagher, another star who didn't get onto the pitch, was also seen having a tender moment with his partner Aine May Kennedy.

And Ollie Watkins chilled with his girlfriend Ellie Anderson.

Saka, 22, coolly fired past Yann Sommer in the shootout, burying the demons of his heartbreaking miss in the final loss to Italy at Euro 2020.

All five of England's takers converted to make it a perfect set of pens, with England winning 5-3 - only their third-ever shootout win.

Asked about exorcising his demons, Saka admitted: "It's something I embrace. It was special, very special, how we fought back. The last time we went to penalties we all know what happened.

"You can fail once but you have a choice whether you put yourself in that position again or not. I'm a guy who is going to put myself in that position. I believed in myself.

"To come back from something like that was really difficult but I used it to make me stronger.

"We know there are two more games until we can change our lives and make some history that's never been made before. We're really focused on that.

"Hopefully in the next game we can win in 90 minutes. But if this is what it takes we will do anything."

England will face the Netherlands for a place in the final on Wednesday at the Signal Iduna Park.
