Euro 2020: 21 gorgeous images from Wembley to elevate your spirits

Even after England’s defeat and heartbreak at Wembley, there were still those moments of sheer pride and joy.

And as Andrew Rawnsley of the Observer wrote early Sunday, this English team has brought us all so much more than just football:

“If England win tonight, Gareth Southgate and his players will be national heroes. If they lose, they still have much to admire and consider for the country. Even a shameless thief like Boris Johnson cannot take that away from them. “
