England won the first ever UEFA Nations League third place play-off on penalties following a 0-0 draw after extra time against Switzerland on Sunday.

Both sides failed to score in an uninspiring 120 minutes at Estádio D. Afonso Henriques in Guimarães – the same ground England were defeated by Holland in.

A constant thorn in Gareth Southgate’s side during this tournament, VAR once again struck to controversially rule out substitute Callum Wilson’s strike.

Goalkeeper Jordan Pickford saved the day for England, stopping the Swiss’ sixth after surprisingly stepping forward to score England’s fifth.

These were the best tweets and jokes as England beat Switzerland on penalties after a 0-0 draw in the Nations League third place play-off:

Having Dier and Delph in centre mid could make this England team more defensive than a Man City fan when you joke that no one turned up to their trophy parade… #SUIENG #NationsLeague pic.twitter.com/oY49o08eGF

England fans shouting 'VAR is fucking sh*t' and "f*ck VAR'.

If there's a Currys in Porto, you have to feel for the safety of a few 36 inch televisions. #SUIENG

How far does VAR go back? Can we review the decision to have a 3rd place play-off for the Nations League, find out it was a shite idea and then all go home. #SUIENG
