Gary Lineker and Rio Ferdinand celebrated the full-time whistle in extreme fashion as England defeated Germany at Euro 2020.

A 2-0 win was enough for Gareth Southgate's side to confirm their place in the quarter-finals where they will face the winners of Ukraine vs Sweden.

Goals for Raheem Sterling and Harry Kane bannished the demons of 1996 when the current England boss missed a vital penalty with Germany going on to win the shootout and the tournament.

England wins over their rivals don't come around too often and so Lineker and Ferdinad made the most of a famous win by jumping and screaming around the BBC One Wembley studio.

The scenes at the full-time whistle were played to viewers showing Ferdinand belting "YESS" into his microphone with both arms in the air.

He then turned punching his chest to the England fans joining in with the celebrations.

Lineker was similarly jubilant but was seen pausing for breath after about 10 seconds of wild celebrating – clearly sturggling to keep up with the younger pundits in the studio.
