Boris Johnson joined-in with ecstatic England supporters on Wednesday night as he celebrated the team’s semi-final victory.
Together with his wife Carrie, the prime minister yelled, threw his hands in the air and hugged his new bride as England secured a place in their first major tournament final in 55 years.
Mr Johnson, who is not known for being a big football fan, opted for patriotic instead of formal and wore an England shirt as Harry Kane’s extra time goal saw the Three Lions secure a 2-1 victory over Denmark.
Carrie Johnson smiled and cheered with her husband and the thousands of fans at Wembley, as chants of ‘it’s coming home’ bellowed around the stadium.
Following the final whistle, the prime minister applauded the efforts of the England squad as he urged the Three Lions to “bring it home”.
“Tonight @England played their hearts out. What a fantastic performance from Gareth Southgate’s squad. Now to the final. Let’s bring it home.”
England’s men last reached a major final in 1966, while the women’s side were losing finalists at Euro 1984 and 2009. The final against Italy will take place on Sunday at 8pm.
