VICTORIOUS England fans threw beer and waved flags in Tenerife as they celebrated England’s World Cup victory over Wales.

The Three Lions surged into the last 16, cheered on by a large contingent of fans who have shunned host nation Qatar to soak up the sun in the Canary Islands during the tournament instead.

England flags were everywhere and the booze flowed freely as Gareth Southgate‘s men gathered momentum in their campaign for World Cup glory.

Some of that booze, though, didn’t make it to thirsty lips as pints were hurled into the air in the ecstatic celebrations for each of the team’s three goals.

Marcus Rashford put in a spectacular performance to come away with a brace, including England’s hundredth World Cup goal.

Phil Foden slotted one just a minute after Rashford’s first before the Manchester United star put the gloss on the win with another.

Back in Tenerife, fans went wild in the island’s bars, which were turned into a sea of white shirts.

Tense passages of play saw everyone silent in their seats, but just moments later they were up again, revelling in taking a step closer to an elusive tournament triumph.

St George’s crosses waved and hugs were exchanged as the final whistle confirmed England’s qualification for the knockout stages.

After the game, clubs were packed with supporters eager to bask in their footballing heroes’ success.

It comes after a fiery build to the grudge match, which saw yobs brawling in the island’s streets after last week’s games.

Punches were thrown and chairs brandished during the clash in Playa de las Américas in the south of the Spanish resort.

Footage shows both sets of fans fighting outside the CC Veronicas shopping centre.

Dozens of people – some wearing the white of the Three Lions and others wearing the red shirts and bucket hats of Wales – appear to be involved in the rumble.

Spanish daily El Dia reports several people were injured in the brawl outside the bars.
