England will face Italy in Sunday's final at Wembley

London police said they made 20 arrests after fans gathered to celebrate England’s 2-1 win over Denmark in Wednesday’s Euro 2020 semifinal.

Riot police were on hand as fans celebrated the country reaching their first major final since winning the 1966 World Cup.

Traffic came to a standstill at Piccadilly Circus in central London when fans blocked streets and climbed on telephone boxes.

“20 arrests have been made by officers for a number of offences including common assault, public order and assault on police,” Met Police said on Twitter.

England will face Italy in Sunday’s final at Wembley.
