The country fell to a standstill last night as England took on Italy in the final of Euro 2020.
Although Gareth Southgate's Three Lions fell short at the last hurdle, their run to the final - a first since 1966 - captivated audiences nationwide.
East London was no different, with people across the capital throwing their support behind the team in its bid to make history.
This newspaper was on hand to capture the build up to the game, and to witness the huge numbers who kicked every ball in a match ultimately decided by an agonising penalty shootout.
While there is disappointment in defeat, this run to the final has stolen the hearts of the nation and reinvigorated a sense of pride in the national team.
Here are some of the best pictures of east London people enjoying this England team's heroic effort.
