Gareth Southgate’s men came from behind to beat Holland 2-1 in their Euro 2024 semi-final on Wednesday evening as Aston Villa man Watkins clinched victory with a superb 90th-minute strike.

And England keeper Pickford, 30, lost it when the ball hit the back of the net as he turned to face the Three Lions supporters and join in the jubilant scenes.

Pickford slid on his knees and then spread out on the turf in a moment of ecstasy.

He then got back to his feet before he screamed and punched the air in delight.

And fans on social media were absolutely loving his reaction.

One said: “Literally a fan who becomes an England player. Love the lad.”

Another added: “He truly is one of us.”

A third replied: “Honestly might be my favourite. Mad as a box of frogs that lad.”

While a fourth responded: “Fella goes down as the best ever for this country.”

Pickford was the hero for England in their quarter-final against Switzerland as he saved Manuel Akanji’s penalty in a 5-3 shoot-out victory.

And in the semi-final, with England drawing 1-1 with Netherlands, he produced a smart stop to deny Virgil van Dijk.

Pickford now has 67 caps since making his international debut under Southgate back in 2017.

He is the first ever England keeper to reach the finals of two major tournaments.
