England has to win two more games to bring the World Cup home, but the enthusiasm some soccer fans displayed after their team advanced to the semi-finals met global expectations.

A Millwall supporters' group has launched a fundraising campaign to help fix an ambulance which was "vandalised" after England's World Cup win over Sweden.

In Nottingham, a group of supporters were spotted dancing on top of a bus shelter, while other clips a auto can be seen with a smashed roof and windscreen.

One onlooker said: "Everybody was happy but this guy got caught up in the moment". "Where we are today, I would say, categorically, quite clearly, we can win it, without a shadow of a doubt", he said.

"This vehicle is now off the road and unable to respond to patients".

"That's good because it wasn't until we got home we realised the enormity of what we had achieved. They really are doing a great job". He can't work and we're now assessing the damage to see how much the repairs will cost.

"We did not know about it and didn't experience it. Everyone wants to enjoy the football but this is not on".

Nottinghamshire Police said a 27-year-old man had been arrested for damaging a taxi and a number of arrests were made for public order offences.

Of course, there were some fans who took things a bit too far.

Nottinghamshire Police has asked fans to consider their actions on Wednesday.

"It's completely unacceptable for a handful of people to ruin the celebrations for others and we won't tolerate this sort of behaviour in Nottingham".

London Ambulance Service said there was "no excuse" for the vandalism which meant the auto was unable to respond to patients after suffering a smashed windscreen and dented bonnet.

C'mon, LADs - we know it's exciting and all, but let's keep it clean, eh?
