It came at the culmination of a frantic, hard-fought encounter - Harry Kane's 57th-minute penalty putting England ahead before Yerry Mina restored parity in stoppage time.

But where previous generations have floundered, Southgate's men flourished.

"SPOT LUCK" - A flying Pickford is again the defining image of England's shootout win alongside the caption: "Pickford and Dier the heroes as England win on penalties at last". "That's something that will live with me forever".

Jos Buttler posted a clip on Instagram, which shows players jumping around in a huddle after the final kick, with a few of donning the national team's jerseys.

'Two things: the England I love always hated these shenanigans.

We reported before the game that England's first five were Harry Kane, Kieran Trippier, Jordan Henderson, Jamie Vardy and Dele Alli. Bring on Sweden on Saturday in Samara.

When this was put to Trippier, who coolly dispatched England's crucial fourth penalty in the shoot-out, the Tottenham wing-back laughed and shook his head before offering a pointed response.

Gareth Southgate is rapidly becoming a national icon thanks to his performance at this World Cup.

"They've not been under that much pressure, I think their opposition has backed off quite a bit, so they've been given the opportunity to move it nice and slow".

"I might be young but I've got good mental strength and experience and I used that today".

And just in case you're wondering whether it was the 1996 original or Three Lions 98 we're all listening to, Spotify confirmed that they combined the streams of both versions of the anthem.

"Although for 10 minutes maybe we were knocked, we then were back in control of the game, trying to push for the win but not leaving ourselves exposed".

Yes, on paper, this looks like a very winnable tie, but as we know, matches at this stage aren't won on paper and England fans just have to look to the Three Lions' record against Sweden for evidence of that.
