England beat Denmark 2-1 on Wednesday night in an historic victory as skipper Harry Kane scored the winner in extra time.

Twitter erupted with people calling for the England boss to get given a gong to celebrate getting so far.

And the PM was grilled over whether he agreed this morning.

He replied: “I obviously wouldn’t want to anticipate anything that the honours people may decide.

“But clearly I think Gareth Southgate has done an absolutely outstanding job.

“What seems so amazing to me is how he varies it, he mixes it up, and plays a different series of options depending on the match in question.

“So best of luck for Sunday.”

Brits are also demanding a bank holiday on Monday if England make it all the way. But Boris refused to get into it, and would only say: “I think that would be tempting fate, let’s see what happens!”
