England beat czech republic to top group d as fans party in the street

Jubilant Three Lions fans roared in packed pubs and partied in the street as England made it through to the last 16 of the Euros.

Beer rained down as cheering supporters threw drinks in the air to celebrate the team's 1-0 win against Czech Republic in their final group game.

Raheem Sterling's 12th minute goal saw England top their group and easily cruise through to the final stages.

Supporters raved inside pubs and on the streets as excitement swelled across the country.

Jess Preece, 18, of Manchester said: “I’m over the moon at the result. A few more goals would have been good but it’s fantastic to get through.”

The apprentice engineer and referee added: “Things are looking good, come on England!”

The rollercoaster game was full of near-misses and a disallowed goal that left fans on the edge of their seats.

There was an audible gasp across the country as Sterling hit the woodwork just minutes into the game, while Harry Kane was denied by a great save.

Wembley erupted again in the 86th minute as Jordan Henderson seemingly slotted his first-ever England goal in but it was quickly ruled offside.

But Sterling's goal was enough to see England come top of their table - meaning they now face the run of death through the tournament.

It is also only the second time England has conceded no goals in all their group games since 1966.

But it was a different story for Scotland who are now out of the tournament after losing 3-1 to Croatia.

The team has never qualified for the next stage of the Euros meaning a win would have made history.

Gareth Southgate will now lead his men out under Wembley's famous arch against the second-placed team from Group F on Tuesday.

But fans fear this will put an end to our chances of progressing further in the tournament as we will now have to take on France, Germany or Portugal.

Tom Harkness, a heating engineer from Hounslow, West London said: "We've scrapped out way out the group and done well to win it.

"But now it's going to be like playing a World Cup Final in the next round.

"France, Germany and Portugal all look stronger than us - but with home advantage we'll still be hard to beat.

"And we might still get Hungary."
