England are through to the Euros final after beating Denmark 2-1 in the semi-finals last night.
The atmosphere across England was electric last night, but nowhere more so than Wembley Stadium where proud fans cheered on Kane, Sterling and Pickford.
And a little girl in the crowd got more than she bargained for at the end of the game and Mason Mount gave her his football jersey of the game.
In footage captured by another fan in the stands, Mount can be seen pushing his way through the crowd and handing his shirt to the girl – and his face says it all.
The young girl, who was wearing her own England shirt at the time, burst into tears of joy as she held the shirt close to him, hugging her father in celebration.
Mount can be seen in the footage watching the girl’s sweet reaction, smiling to himself.
People have viewed the video online millions of times, with comments from English fans.
One person wrote on the video: “What makes it even better is that Mount looks at the girl and sees what it means to her. He didn’t have to do it at all, but he got to see in that brief moment what a difference it made.”
Another commented: “It’s amazing. He made this day girls and Euros. She will never forget this moment.”
A third shared: “Everything you need to know about Mount and this team. A new generation that has reconnected the England squad with their fans.”
England will now face Italy in the Euro 2020 final after beating Denmark 2-1.
It was a tense game last night, especially for England fans after Mikkel Damsgaard’s free-kick left them behind in the first half.
However, it was Raheem Sterling who made it 1-1 after his attack on goal sent Simon Kjaer into an own goal.
In injury time, Harry Kane sealed England’s fate in the tournament by scoring on the rebound from his missed penalty.
Italy v England will take place at Wembley Stadium this Sunday, kicking off at 8:00 p.m. Coverage begins on ITV at 6.30pm.
