England fans were pictured out across popular Northampton pubs celebrating The Three Lions' Euro 2020 victory against Czech Republic.

The Chronicle and Echo's photographer snapped fans in Thomas A Becket's beer garden underneath gazebos, inside The Picturedrome and outside in Sixfields Tavern's garden cheering, drinking and enjoying themselves.

Gareth Southgate's men beat the Czechs 1-0 at Wembley thanks to a Raheem Sterling goal, which means England have finished top of their group and will play the runners-up of Group F at Wembley on Tuesday, 29 June at 5pm.

England boss Gareth Southgate said after the game: "I thought there were a lot of positives in the performance both individual and collectively.

"It was one of those nights where we said to the players there was a bit more freedom because the consequence of a draw or a loss wasn't fatal, so hopefully a bit less pressure for them to play which is rare in a tournament."

All eyes will be on who finishes second in Group F tomorrow night out of Germany, Portugal, France or Hungary in what is a very wide open group.
