Come on England! Celebrities euphoric after World Cup quarter-final win

Come on England! Celebrities euphoric after World Cup quarter-final win

"It's a scrappier game against Sweden, they don't let you play, we had to withstand physical pressure but resilience was crucial to see it through".

None of the trio were required as England comfortably beat Sweden 2-0 in Samara on Saturday to move into the semi-finals of the World Cup for the first time since 1990. The victory left revelers in Montreal's Burgundy Lion feeling pretty good - though the liquid refreshments may have helped.

Aoife Heffron, Spokesperson for BoyleSports said: "England are in the World Cup semi-finals in what will be the Three Lions third ever appearance".

"It was good timing, I didn't sleep much last night, my wife did a great job back home and both her and the baby are doing very well", added the Sweden skipper, who also spoke about Saturday's game and his side's team spirit. Paulo Momesso, owner of Momesso's Restaurant in NDG's Little Italy said it's been tough to watch after Italy didn't qualify for the first time since 1958.

He was 13 when England last won the World Cup and he said he believes this team could achieve the same.

"We're enjoying it, the fans are enjoying it, I'm sure we'll see some videos later of the fans enjoying it".

"When I was watching him during the season, I was so keen that he stayed fit because this was a stage that I was certain he could show he could play at".

"They have got a hell of a chance and I don't think us as a nation will get a better chance of going all the way to the final, so I hope they grasp it". If England somehow wins the entire World Cup he needs to have a World Cup Trophy emblazoned around the roster. We want to keep seeing those videos.

England fans lose all control. "That is something I need to think about tactically but like I say, he did a fantastic job for the team".

Thousands crammed onto the shoreline at Brighton Beach in southern England erupted in joy as Harry Maguire headed home England's first goal.

"We were brilliant at set-pieces, crosses into the box and we are buzzing". We're not really thinking about being world champions yet.

"The Colombians were pretty brutal in their way of playing football and deliberately tried to provoke us and it worked".

"They're going to feel bad".
