Claire Bagshaw, an England fan, was the first to say: Tonight was history.
The Three Lions never doubted Claire and her family, who had gathered at Event City with more than 1,000 people to see Denmark, England.
“I think they can do it, 100%,” he said.
“It’s a day-end date and we may never see it again.”
But it was not an easy time and after conceding England’s first goal, you could end the tension with a knife.
Fortunately for us, Denmark captain Simon Kajair gave England a one-goal lead. We came back running.
The fans held their nerves and when Hurricane scored the second goal, it was time to start dreaming.
Fan Matt Tomlinson said, “He’s got 1966 Wibs.
“I just don’t want to add it.”
When the final whistle blew after extra time, securing England’s place in the final, the fan zone erupted.
Shirts and beers flew, and fans ripped off their metal pens to keep them out of society.
Although security personnel were quick to get everyone back to where they should be, some emotions could not be erased.
Jamie Grunder, 28, of Tildesley, said: “I’ve probably never seen this before in my life.
“It means so much to me. I’m a Liverpool fan and I live in the United Territory, and I can play football with my teammates at once. It means the world to me.
“My little boy is 10 years old and I told him, you may not see England do this again.
“It’s been incredible.”
For some, it was more than just football.
Kate Franklin, 30, took her mother and father, Derek and Jill, to watch the game at Event City.
Kate, from Elderly Age, said: “This is really the first time my dad has come out right in 16 months.
“It’s been a very emotional time for us,” he said.
“It simply came to our notice then. The atmosphere was incredible.
“My boyfriend is Italian so the final will be very stressful at home.”
Dad Derek, 62, added: “It’s been amazing to see. I really feel like he’s coming home.
