England beer

England scored early in its semifinal matchup against Croatia in the 2018 World Cup.
Across the country, fans sent their beers flying in the air in celebration of the goal, costing untold pounds in refills.
Should England hold on to win, the Three Lions will face France in the final on Sunday.

England got off to a hot start in its World Cup semifinal match against Croatia on Wednesday.

After winning a few yards outside the box just five minutes into the match, Kieran Trippier sent home a beautiful free kick to give England an early 1-0 lead as the Three Lions fight for the chance to play France in the final.

Across England, fans erupted with joy, and in doing so, sent gallons upon gallons (err, litres upon litres) of beer into the air in celebration.

Because the goal came so early in the match, it’s likely that the beers flung into the skies were a bit more full than fans initially anticipated when they imagined their celebration. Clouds of fermented mist were instantly created across the country.

Hold onto your beers… or don’t. 🤷‍♂️
