The city centre erupted and the streets were filled with chants of "England" and "Football's Coming Home".
"Well I just did our research for starters", Pickford said to ITV.
With Harry Kane, whose six goals in the tournament are no real surprise, leading the line and Raheem Sterling, Dele Alli and Jesse Lingard behind him, England have exciting talent in their front line.
United States radio host Roger Bennett surmises on what Southgate was feeling when he saw his England team win.
Fans wearing replica shirts chanted "football's coming home", the refrain which has always been adopted as an unofficial national anthem for the England football team, at various points during the match, most notably after Spurs striker Kane's opener, goalkeeper Jordan Pickford's penalty save, and substitute Eric Dier's decisive spot-kick. I'm not the biggest but I can get around the goal.
Maradona, whose celebration of Argentina's dramatic win over Nigeria that sealed a place in the knockout stages will provide one of the lasting memories of Russian Federation 2018, was particularly scathing of Geiger's decision to award a spot-kick to England when Kane was dragged to ground by Carlos Sanchez.

England's build-up to Euro 2012 was hugely disturbed by Capello's shock resignation over the Football Association's decision to strip John Terry of the captaincy.
That mentality and the preparation was evident in the way England dealt with the challenge of the shootout.
"I'd have liked a week to enjoy this one but haven't got that because Sweden are a team I respect hugely".
Referee Mark Geiger immediately pointed to the spot, and Kane buried his sixth goal of the tournament to give England the lead. England fans were few and far between, lost in a sea of Colombian yellow, a few of their supporters wearing blonde afro wigs in honour of the country's footballing hero Carlos Valderrama. In Southgate's news conference before the Colombia game, the second question posed to him was effectively this: With so many good teams out of the field, don't you have a great chance to reach the final?
