Military personnel and their families have been celebrating England's win against Sweden all around the world.

Gareth Southgate's side got the better of Sweden 2-nil in Samara - while Croatia beat hosts Russia on penalties last night.

Fans watched worldwide, from Yeovilton Air Day to Gibraltar.

In Germany, soldiers and families from 1 Armoured Medical Regiment and the Paderborn Garrison watched the game at the NAAFI bar, the Harden Arms on Dempsey Barracks.

Watch the video for the reactions:

The Tigers Army Parachute Team jumped in England shirts at Southport Airshow. They tweeted:

"Well done England. So very proud of the England squad today."

The Grenadier Guards were also watching from Iraq, where they are currently deployed.

They wrote on their Facebook page: "After a hard day training the Iraqi security forces in Iraq, we finished it watching the England game, everyone on the edge of their seats to see if we really could bring it home, as you can see we got a little bit excited."

They posted their reaction on social media, tweeting:

"We would like to thank BFBS Sport without their service we wouldn’t be able to watch #ENGSWE and be able experience the World Cup from Iraq and Afghanistan they made this video possible"

BFBS TV transmits 14 channels to the British Forces personnel serving overseas.

At RAF Halton, preparations are well underway for the RAF centenary celebrations on Tuesday.

However, that did not stop personnel from showing their support:

Ahead of the game, The Bands of the Guards Division played a special version of 'Three Lions' on the forecourt of Buckingham Palace:

The Band and Corps of Drums of the Royal Logistic Corps also showed their support by performing the song during the Changing of the Guard.

Harry Kane says the team is "buzzing" after booking their place in a World Cup semi-final for the first time in 28 years.

Gareth Southgate believes togetherness and drive has been a winning combination for his eager squad, with even the Euro 2016 humiliation providing a platform.

The Three Lions followed their gritty display against Colombia thanks to headers from Harry Maguire and Dele Alli either side of half-time.

"So much preparation went into it and I thought we were fantastic today," the England captain said on BBC One.

"It was a difficult game, Sweden made it tough - long balls, different to what we have faced so far.

"We were brilliant at set-pieces, crosses into the box and we are buzzing."

However Kane, who leads the race for the 2018 Golden Boot with six goals, is staying grounded despite the growing belief both inside and outside of the squad:

"We know there is still a big game ahead with the semi-final, but we are feeling good and confident.

"We just have to go again, keep doing what we are doing and make the country proud."
