In pictures: England fans' joy as Three Lions top Euros group... but Scotland are sent home

There were mixed scenes on Tuesday night after England topped their Euro 2020 group – while Scotland saw their hopes of progressing crushed.

Raheem Sterling’s early header saw England celebrate a 1-0 victory against the Czech Republic, but Scotland’s hopes of winning through to the knockout stages of a major tournament for the first time ended with a 3-1 defeat by Croatia at Hampden Park.

Having kicked off Group D by beating World Cup semi-final foes Croatia and then been booed following the goalless draw with rivals Scotland, Gareth Southgate’s already-qualified side put in a controlled display on Tuesday.

England fans celebrated into the night as hopes of winning a major tournament were kept alive by the win.

“It’s coming home” echoed around Wembley – but England now face either France, Germany or Portugal in the so-called group of death.

Scotland, playing in their first major tournament since the 1998 France World Cup, needed a victory in their final Group D fixture to reach the last 16 but despite a big effort fell short again.

The Scots had not lost to Croatia in their previous five meetings and were hoping to make their own football history but it was not to be – leaving thousands of fans disappointed.

Attention will now be turning to England's last 16 clash with Germany and where Three Lions fans can watch the must-see action.

Boxpark - the London food and entertainment venue which has welcomed fans throughout the Euros - released tickets for the knockouts on Thursday, and will have quarter final tickets on sale on Weds 30 June.
