Jesse Lingard and Trent Alexander-Arnold chant ‘It’s Coming Home’ on pitch as they celebrate England’s penalty shootout victory against Colombia in last-16 of World Cup
There were scenes of jubilation as England finally ended their 22-year penalty shootout hoodoo by beating Colombia to progress to the World Cup quarter-finals.
And among those leading the celebrations following the final whistle were Jesse Lingard and Trent Alexander-Arnold at the Spartak Stadium in Moscow.
Lingard soaked in the triumphant scenes and took to Instagram to post various videos onto his story of England celebrating inside the stadium.

In one of the videos, Manchester United forward Lingard can be heard asking his Liverpool rival ‘what are you saying Trent’ before the youngster joyfully replies ‘It’s Coming Home’.
But the overjoyed England duo didn’t stop there, as they both shouted down the camera ‘It’s Coming Home’ once again.
Maybe they are starting to believe and just like Lingard and Alexander-Arnold, the England supporters inside the stadium were also in full voice.
While walking round the pitch, Lingard posted further videos of the England fans singing their hearts out, captioning one of the posts: ‘Love each and everyone’, alongside a heart emoji.

Lingard was clearly making the most of the occasion and posted a photo of him talking on the phone while on the pitch, accompanied by the amusing caption: ‘No mum, I’m not coming home. It’s…’
England sealed their spot in the last eight of the World Cup after holding their nerve to win 4-3 on penalties against Colombia.
The Three Lions went ahead in the second half thanks to a Harry Kane penalty but they were agonisingly pegged back in injury-time through a Yerry Mina header.
And after the stalemate in extra-time, England finally came out on top with Eric Dier scoring the winning penalty following a brilliant save from Jordan Pickford to deny Carlos Bacca.
England will now play Sweden in the quarter-finals on Saturday afternoon.
