As Roy Hodgson’s men bounced back from going in 0-1 down at half-time of Euro 2016’s ‘Battle of Britain’, these were the best jokes from England 2-1 Wales.

A rocket of a free kick from Gareth Bale sent the travelling Welsh fans delirious, before second-half goals from substitutes Jamie Vardy and Daniel Sturridge – the latter in stoppage time – sent England to the top of Group B.

Workers across the country had to make their excuses in order to watch the 2pm kicking, costing the economy an estimated £200m in the process – but English fans will say it was worth it.

With both sides now able to qualify with a win in their final group stage games, these were the best jokes from England 2-1 Wales:

I was thinking of something witty to tweet about Harry Kane's free kick.

Wouldn't it be best to call #ENGWAL off now while it's 1-1? That way everyone wins and we can stay friends

That's how football works, yeah?

England celebrated that like they won the Euro Cup or something. Unbelievable. They have a small mentality.
