Maybe we won’t get this opportunity again, says Gareth Southgate

Gary Lineker heads the ball against West Germany in the 1990 World Cup semi-final

Footage showed elated supporters from Brighton to Gibraltar, many wearing England shirts or none at all, dancing and spraying beer into the air to celebrate the historic win.

Former England captain Steven Gerrard has urged them to seize the moment in Saturday's World Cup quarter-final against Sweden.

England have the most inexperienced squad left in the tournament and should, in theory, be hitting their peak at the European Championships in 2020 or the World Cup in Qatar in 2022, but Southgate believes it would be a mistake to adopt that thinking. "These players could carry the football".

"Obviously you know that you're getting very close to the final and you do obviously get a little bit excited, but you've got to keep focused", Shilton told Sky Sports News HQ. When I went to France they said, "Don't run back". "I wish them every bit of luck".

"That's so important for us on Saturday because I always think Sweden like to point out we're paid this and that, and we're the team of entitlement when I don't think that is the case for this group". "People were quite tense at first but when we scored there were beers flying in the air and people who had never met started hugging each other".

Picture shows man desperately signalling for help after train derails in Turkey
At least 10 people have died and more than 70 have been injured in a passenger train derailment in northwestern Turkey. Experts from a Turkish engineering union issued a statement saying a drainage system was incorrectly built.

"It would have been nice to have gotten a goal even in a loss but that didn't happen - England was unfortunately just the better team, and at least it was a nice clean game".

"It's risky if I start to get carried away, but I'm proud of the way we're playing", he said.

Former England global Gary Neville, who was assistant to Roy Hodgson when they were knocked out by Iceland in last-16 at Euro 2016, felt the current pool of players have shown great maturity throughout the tournament in Russian Federation. "We have all of the requisites for that - we have a great team, backroom staff, coach, and I hope we will be able to make that extra step to reach the final".

The party began with beer showers and chants of "Football's Coming Home" - England's unofficial football anthem written for the Euro '96 tournament.
