People packed the streets to celebrate England’s victory against Sweden on Saturday.

You may be sick of hearing the football anthem Three Lions by now, but the people of Norwich who crowded Rampant Horse Street and Red Lion Street this weekend were loving every moment of it.

Revellers were seen tightly packed into the city centre jumping up and down to the song as it blasted from a pirate ship docked in the street as part of The Lord Mayor’s Celebrations.

England’s World Cup success somewhat dominated the celebrations this year, which officially had a circus theme but became wrapped up in the football spirit on Saturday night. The Lord Mayor himself requested Three Lions be played before he opened the evening fireworks display.

How do you think Norwich will celebrate if England win their game against Croatia on Wednesday? Let us know in the comments.
