The moment football fans go wild in Piper as England wins penalty shootout

This is the moment jubilant England fans went wild in Piper nightclub after the Three Lions won their first ever World Cup penalty shootout to reach the quarter-finals of the competition.

All eyes were on Eric Dier as he stepped up to the penalty spot and after burying his shot past the Colombian goalkeeper supporters inside the Newland Avenue nightclub reacted with huge gusto.

Drinks were thrown up in the air, cannons blew out confetti and smoke while fans jumped in the air to celebrate the historic win which puts England within touching distance of a first semi-final since 1990.

And fans were keen to carry on celebrating with masses of supporters later seen singing along to The Lightning Seeds smash hit Three Lions.

England went ahead against Colombia through a Harry Kane penalty – a goal which put him two clear of Belgium’s Romelu Lukaku in the race for the Golden Boot.

However, hearts were broken in the 93rd minute when England conceded to a Yerry Mina header.

Extra time could not separate the two sides and after Jordan Henderson missed his spot kick there were fears that England’s penalty jinx would continue for another year.

But despair turned to jubilation minutes later when Mateus Uribe hit the crossbar and Jordan Pickford saved Carlos Bacca’s effort.

That left Tottenham’s Eric Dier with the chance to win the game and he duly obliged by slotting his spot kick in the bottom right corner.
