England fan celebrates after the match.

An England fan suspected of vandalising an ambulance following the Three Lion's win over Sweden on Saturday has been identified, according to police.

Police have said that a 27-year-old man has been arrested for what happened, and added that they are also still searching for another alleged offender.

The Three Lions went into this summer's World Cup with no expectation on their shoulders whatsoever, with the penalty shootout Villain of Euro 96 picking a young and inexperienced squad to take to Russian Federation.

England manager Gareth Southgate says winning the World Cup would make his players even bigger heroes than the 1966 generation because of the impact of social media and the globalisation of football.

However, a spokesperson for the Met Police told HuffPost UK that there had not been am abnormally high number of calls in the capital.

The match was held on the same weekend as the London Pride Parade, Wireless Festival and British Summertime Hyde Park, which brought swathes of tourists to the capital.

The emergency services hit out at the "disgraceful" minority of England fans who marked their team's passage to the World Cup semi-finals with disorder.

The charity's website said: 'Show your support for Gareth Southgate and the boys ahead of Wednesday's semi-final showdown - and help give blood cancer the boot!

He then shocked supporters when he ended up jumping onto the bus stop, shattering the glass roof and knocking over a bystander. Czechoslovakia and Yugoslavia advanced to the semi-finals in 1962 without a player aged 26 or over scoring for them.
