How Twitter reacted to England’s win over Germany

| 27.03.2016

The nation’s reaction to coming from 2-0 down to beat the reigning world champions 3-2 in a warmup game to a major tournament probably doesn’t need spelling out.

An impressive, fast-paced and organised performance saw Roy Hodgson’s men really raise expectation levels ahead of the European Championships in France this summer.

However, there were more social media reactions than just the “we’re gonna win the Euros” tweets that inevitably followed the win.

Here, Ladbrokes News bring you the best of them all in one handy place:

As the teams prepared to kick off, England’s new away strip – a mix of red, maroon and blue, came in for some stick

Danny Rose lined up for his debut, becoming another Mauricio Pochettino disciple to progress to full international honours

Dele Alli, was enjoying a good game, a fact that didn’t go unnoticed on Twitter

But Germany extended their lead through Mario Gomez

Harry Kane’s superb finish kick-started the comeback and the Spurs man took to social media to express his delight

Jamie Vardy came off the bench and back heeled the Three Lions level almost immediately

England kept pushing for the win and Alli skied a golden chance towards the end, but with almost the last touch of the game his Spurs teammate Eric Dier thumped a header home from a corner. Alli congratulated him, sort of

At the final whistle, the “we’re gonna win the Euros” hype machine went into overdrive
