They did it!

England are in the Euro 2020 finals after a tense 120 minutes of football which led to an extra time 2-1 win over Denmark.

It was a nervy first half, with Denmark taking the lead before England equalised with an own goal.

Fans were on the edge of their seats at The Arena fan zone in Sprowston, with the first half goal leading to joyous celebrations and energy levels through the roof.

The second half was somewhat more subdued as England struggled to find the back of the net.
