The look on Prince William’s face said it all.
England football fans went on a rollercoaster ride of emotions on Thursday morning (AEST) but were finally able to celebrate when the referee blew full-time in their Euro 2020 semi-final.
The Three Lions beat Denmark 2-1, the winner coming from captain Harry Kane, who scored on the rebound after his penalty in extra time was saved by Kasper Schmeichel.
There was plenty of debate over whether the spot-kick was warranted but all British football lovers care about is they now have a chance to win their first international trophy since the 1966 World Cup, when they play Italy in the decider on Monday morning.
The Duke of Cambridge looked mighty chuffed as he watched the action from the stands at Wembley.

It meant Britain’s royal family had the last laugh over Prince Frederik and Australia’s own Princess Mary, who married into the Danish royal family.

England fans were stunned into silence when 21-year-old Mikkel Damsgaard scored after half-an-hour with a free-kick described by commentators as “extraordinary”.
Damsgaard got the ball over the wall and down again in time as it sailed into the top-left corner, evading Jordan Pickford’s desperate dive.
Being an England supporter has been a seriously tough gig for the past 55 years, and there were plenty of worried faces wondering if their team would exit a tournament before the most important game yet again.
