Celebrations went long into the night for Three Lions fans after England ran riot in Rome with a stunning 4-0 win in their Euro 2020 quarter-final clash with Ukraine.

After sending beer flying across pubs and bars during last night’s game, football fans took the party to the streets as they soaked up England’s dominant display.

Hundreds of fans were filmed singing ‘football’s coming home’ in Stevenson Square, Manchester, after last night’s game.

In Brighton fans in cars performed wheel spins to fill the streets with smoke and honked their horns as hundreds of England supporters partied in the city centre.

In London’s Trafalgar Square – where there is an official Euro 2020 fan park – fans dressed in England shirts and wrapped in England flags celebrated the resounding win.

Hundreds also gathered in nearby Leicester Square after the match. But as the beers flowed, the scenes soured, with police moving in and appearing to make arrests.

It comes as England captain Harry Kane scored a brace, adding to goals from Harry Maguire and Jordan Henderson, to secure a 4-0 victory against Ukraine at the Stadio Olympico in Rome last night.  

It means Denmark are all that stands between Gareth Southgate’s side and a historic first European Championship final. The semi-final clash is due to take place on Wednesday night at Wembley.

Maguire then scored with a thumping header from a Luke Shaw cross to make it 2-0 after the break. And England then ran riot in Rome, with Kane scoring his second and Henderson heading home a fourth from a Mason Mount corner. 

The lucky few thousand England fans who had made it to Italy celebrated into the early hours in Rome.

‘It has been the most amazing night,’ said James Curran who had travelled from Prague with two friends for the match. ‘I don’t think anyone in the stadium expected this result. Everyone is in dreamland.’

Other stunned supporters struggled to get their words out as they tried to comprehend the team’s achievement.

Supporter Marc Ghossein said: ‘It’s an amazing feeling. We have been waiting for this for 25 years now.’ His friend Ellie Mhanna added: ‘England are going to win this year’s Euros for sure. They’ve been consistent and they deserve it.’

When the game ended the festivities continued in London, firstly inside the fan zone at Trafalgar Square before they were kicked out by security.

Fans later took to the streets of London, partying in Pall Mall, Leicester Square and Piccadilly Circus, excited for the prospect to do it all over again on Wednesday. 

But it turned sour at Leicester Square, where police clashed with swathes of England fans.

Hundreds of maskless England fans repeated the celebrations from Tuesday and climbed atop the Shaftesbury memorial fountain in Piccadilly Circus, waving the St George flag. 

The Met later advised England fans to stay away from a ‘busy’ Piccadilly Circus. MailOnline has this morning contacted the force for any news of arrests of injuries to officers.

But the Cambridges – like thousands of England fans – were unable to travel to Italy for the game on Saturday night because all UK arrivals needed to self-isolate for five days after arriving in Italy – which is on England’s amber list.

Steven Langmead almost shouted himself hoarse during the match cheering on the Three Lions.

‘I feel really privileged to have been here. Always had a feeling we would win, but not by four goals. Bring on the semi-final. I’d love to be at Wembley but will settle for watching it on the TV back home in Spain.’
