VIDEO: Fans go wild in city pub as England win on penalties


A mobile phone camera captured scenes of riotous joy as England broke their penalty kicks hoodoo and qualified for the quarter-finals of the World Cup in Russia.

This footage was taken in Oaten Hill’s Cross Keys pub as England’s Eric Dier slotted past Colombia keeper David Ospina to secure a 4-3 win on penalties after a 1-1 draw.

Agricultural worker Andy Harvey was in the Keys last night and uploaded the footage to Facebook.

After the game, he said: “Please England don’t put me or more importantly my heart through that again.”

England’s next game is the quarter-final against unfancied Sweden at 3pm on Saturday. The winners of that game will play either hosts Russia or Croatia in the semi-finals.
