The quarter-final win over Sweden on Saturday saw some fans getting a bit carried away, with the now ubiquitous anthem "it's coming home" featuring heavily.

England defeated Sweden 2-0 on Saturday and will face Croatia, who eliminated Russian Federation on penalties later in the day, in Moscow on June 11 in an attempt to reach their first final since tasting glory in 1966.

An Ikea spokeswoman said: "We are aware of a small group of fans celebrating the match result in one of our stores".

He might only be the third man ever to guide England to the last four of a World Cup but due to his sartorial elegance he will also go down as the man who revived the waistcoat from the wastelands of fashion.


"We are better than this England..."

However, a spokesperson for the Met Police told HuffPost UK that there had not been am abnormally high number of calls in the capital.

Police are aware of the damage to the auto, a London Ambulance Service spokesman confirmed.

Yesterday's match was held on the same weekend as the London Pride Parade, Wireless Festival and the British Summertime festival in Hyde Park. You are a total disgrace.


London Ambulance Service published images of the damage to the vehicle.

England's forward Harry Kane (L) vies for the ball with Sweden's defender Victor Lindelof during the Russian Federation 2018 World Cup quarter-final football match between Sweden and England at the Samara Arena in Samara on July 7, 2018.

Several people were photographed on top of the ambulance.

The poor cabbie was left "traumatised" as crowds started chanting 'Where's your taxi gone?', as the bloke climbed up onto the grey saloon auto in Nottingham, East Midlands, and plunged through the shattered roof.


Tottenham midfielder Alli nodded in only England's third goal from open play of this World Cup so far just before the hour mark, having struggled with injury earlier in the tournament.
