Watch BBC studio go wild and Rio Ferdinand jump with joy with Gary Lineker after Sterling goal vs Germany at Euro 2020

BBC pundits Gary Lineker, Alan Shearer and Rio Ferdinand went absolutely bonkers after Raheem Sterling put England ahead in their Euro 2020 last 16 tie with Germany.

The Manchester City winger fired Gareth Southgate's side into the lead in the 75th minute, sending fans up and down the country and those in attendance at Wembley into a state of delirium.

And Lineker, Shearer and Ferdinand couldn't contain their delight after the 26-year-old bagged the opening goal of the game.

The trio leapt from their perches as soon as the ball hit the back of the net and began jumping around for joy.

Former Manchester United and England defender Ferdinand was the most jubilant of the lot, leaping up and down like a man possessed.

Footage of the trio's celebrations warmed the hearts of Three Lions fans, one of whom said: This has absolutely made my day…am guilty as charged of enjoying your reaction a little too much!

Another said: "Ferdinand celebrated like a sims character in his corner I was dying."

And another said: "All the fortnite dances."


One remarked: "Your passion is everything!"

Former Germany and Tottenham hitman Jurgen Klinsmann cut a disappointed figure as the BBC's English contingent of pundits went wild.

And his motionlessness didn't go unnoticed, with one viewer saying: "Poor Klinsmann haha."

Another said: "Look at Klingsman. Face like a slaped a**."

And another said: "See how poor Jurgen Klinsmann standing there amongst English commentators."

England skipper Harry Kane sparked chaotic scenes up and down the country by heading his side 2-0 up in the 86th minute.

After the final whistle, Klinsmann said: "You have to recognise the moment. This is England's moment.

"You've got to realise if you go through the quarter-final you play a semi-final here, and you maybe have a sell-out crowd in the final.

"It's not going to be an easy road to the final, but it's doable.

"Now they have showed the belief, Harry Kane broke through and the energy is high.

"You've got to take advantage of that and win this all."

Despite being over the moon with the historic result, man of the moment Sterling insists the team aren't getting ahead of themselves.

He said: "It sounds good, we knew we needed to put a big performance in against a good side and we did that today.

"Doing it for your country will always be special and it is a special moment for me.

"I celebrated and for half a second I thought 'let it not be offside'. Really happy it went in and got the win.

"We knew the intensity we can play at and not a lot of teams can deal with it. The two players in midfield, Declan Rice and Kalvin Phillips, ate up the grass and were animals in there.

"We take it game by game, recover and focus for the next one."
