Why the English team is the sweetest team of the World Cup


England's World Cup heroes were applauded off the pitch at the end of their historic 6-1 victory over Panama - and ran straight into the arms of their loved ones.

Two goal hero John Stones, 24, wanted to share the moment with his partner Millie Savage, the childhood sweetheart who he has been dating since he was just 12, and his family.

Jamie Vardy, 31, who made his World Cup finals debut as a sub for hat-trick hero Harry Kane, saw his wife Rebekah for a hug amid scenes of jubilation on the England team bench.

Manager Gareth Southgate had joked that he would not be able to leap into the air as he did in our last-gasp victory over Tunisia when Kane hit the winner.

But the Wags celebrated in the stands as England hit goal after goal in biggest World Cup win ever.

Ashley Young's wife Nicky, Kyle Walker's partner Annie Kilner and Jack Butland's fiancee Annabel Peyton all leapt from their seats as the first goal went in from John Stones.

And his defensive partner Harry Maguire, 25, who gave another outstanding performance, posed alongside his parents, brothers and sister at the side of the pitch at the final whistle.

#TeamMaguire is made up of his parents Zoe and Alan, brothers Laurence and Joe, also professional footballers, his sister Daisy, girlfriend Fern Hawkins and soccer agent Kenny Shepherd.

They were all wearing replica 'Maguire No 6' shirts for our opening win, and carried the team colours again. "The team spirit is a big thing for Gareth," said an FA source. "And he will make sure they get to see their families."

The team is set to have another day off on Monday before training again for the Group G decider against favourites Belgium.
