Raheem Sterling and Harry Kane were the heroes again on Wednesday night as England came back from a goal down to beat the Danes and make it to the final.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson led the tributes to the England team and tweeted: "Let’s bring it home."
But there was plenty of room on social media for the "haters" - who claimed Sterling cheated and dived for the penalty or highlighted the fact that someone apparently shone a laser pen at Denmark keeper Kasper Schmeichel when Kane was taking his spot kick.
Tonight @England played their hearts out. What a fantastic performance from Gareth Southgate’s squad.— Boris Johnson (@BorisJohnson) July 7, 2021
Now to the final. Let’s bring it home 🏴
Former Chelsea, Manchester United and Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho was among those who claimed “it was never a penalty.”

England being in the final of a major football tournament for the first time in 55 years is clearly painful for many Welsh, Scottish and Irish fans and it appears that many other Europeans will be backing Italy in the wake of Brexit.

“Especially at this level, the semi-final of a Euro. I don’t understand the decision.”
