FOOTBALL fans packed the streets of Reading last night to celebrate England's historic win against Germany last night.

Gareth Southgate's Three Lions beat Germany in a knockout tie for the first time since 1966 on Tuesday night, raising the hopes of a nation that football could finally be coming home.

Goals from Raheem Sterling and Harry Kane were enough to avoid another major competition exit to Die Mannschaft, when the squad heeded their manager’s advice to make their own history.

Here are some of the best pictures from a rainy Reading as England fans celebrated a memorable night.
