Yesterday, football fans all across the nation couldn’t believe their eyes when their dreams became a reality. The Three Lions reached their first final at a major tournament since the 1966 World Cup.

England secured a spot in the Euro 2020 final with the dramatic 2-1 win at Wembley.

Speaking during BBC Newsnight, Stephen Bush, political editor for the New Statesman, said this historic achievement will have a lasting effect on the nation.

“This will live in the memory as when England felt optimistic about itself,” he said.

Mr Bush said that Covid restrictions easing and people being able to celebrate together adds to this.
