England reached the semi-finals…and Twitter loved it.

A first World Cup win for England over Argentina in nearly 40 years thanks to a 3-2 scoreline took Danny Kerry’s side into the Hockey Men’s World Cup semi-finals. There was plenty of reaction from hockey twitter. Here are a few tweets for your enjoyment!

Sam Quek knows a thing or two about winning medals on the world stage, but is she helping to influence England’s World Cup campaign?!

“Don’t say it.”
“Don’t say it.”
“Don’t say it.”
“Don’t say it.”

“It’s coming home.”


Wherever some people are in the world, it won’t stop them supporting their team. Super commitment, Zoe!


Victory tastes really sweet sometimes!


Any excuse to bring out a clip of goalkeeper George Pinner doing a cartwheel!


And of course, there’s a lot of love out there for the legendary Barry Middleton!


Although if you go too over the top with your Barry love, his wife might tell you to dial it down a bit! ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ™ƒ
