England Euphoria: Best Tweets From Fans Cheering The Boys On In Russia
The biggest sporting match this country has partaken in arrives on Wednesday as England look to reach their first World Cup final since winning the famous cup back in 1966.
It’s a predicament even the most ardent of England supporters couldn’t envisage heading into the tournament last month. A team with a lack of experience and a manager who was drafted in months before the tournament to replace a disgraced coach shouldn’t be doing this well.
It’s as if an immovable force is accompanying England along this journey and while the draw has opened up favourably for them, the Three Lions are certainly doing the country proud.
England have been arguably the most stable defensive side in the tournament alongside the likes of Uruguay, and they’ve made the most of their most dangerous weapons – mainly set-pieces.
Back home, there is certainly a wave of optimism that this could be the year England ends a generation of hurt and the ‘#ItsComingHome’ hashtag has gone viral on social media.
Below, we take a look at some the best tweets in support of England as they embarked on this enthraling journey.
