He said: “We’ve got a chance to go and write ourselves a place in history. It’s a massive game, the lads are buzzing, they all know what an opportunity this is. We came into this tournament with the ambition to get to the knockout stages.

“We’ve now got an unbelievable chance to do that. We just have to work hard, stay humble and get the job done. This game is so important, I can’t even imagine what the scenes would be like if we did this now. Look, we know the job in hand. We came here to hit a target.

“Wen when we got together in Spain for the pre-tournament camp, we talked about putting ourselves in the history books. We had a great camp in Spain, didn’t get off to a great start at Hampden – but the performance we got from every single man at Wembley was unbelievable.”
