The BBC punditry panel couldn’t control their emotions after Raheem Sterling gave England the lead against Germany.
For English football fans, every major tournament single-game victory is a triumph.
England have suffered too much heartbreak in these kind of competitions for fans ever to be capable of getting ahead of themselves and having ambitions to go all the way.
‘Football’s coming home’ is sung in irony, if with a great deal of hope that one day it actually will.
However, when Raheem Sterling found the back of Manuel Neuer’s net at Wembley yesterday afternoon, a few will have started to believe.
Sterling’s goal set England on their way to a historic triumph over international rivals Germany, and unsurprisingly, the England legends in the BBC punditry panel couldn’t keep it together.
Have a look at the absolute scenes in the studio after the goal. You have to feel sorry for Jurgen Klinsmann…
