21 Stunning Photos From Wembley To Lift Your Spirits

Even in England’s defeat and heartbreak at Wembley there were still these moments of sheer pride and joy. 

And as the Observer’s Andrew Rawnsley wrote early on Sunday, this England team have brought us all so much more than football: 

“If England win tonight, Gareth Southgate and his players will be national heroes. If they lose, they will still have given the country much to admire and think about. That can’t be hijacked from them, even by a thief as shameless as Boris Johnson.”
