“Football is coming home” led to attacks on home furnishings during a night of revelry celebrating England’s World Cup win against Sweden.
A group of men were pictured at an IKEA in Stratford, London, jumping on beds at the Scandinavian-founded megachain, shortly after their country’s team won 2-0 in Samara, Russia.
IKEA said it was aware of the incident, but did not give information about damages and replied that it is both Swedish and British.
It offered a deal on fish and chips at its cafes in celebration of the win.

“Football is coming home,” was a common, drunken refrain from those at IKEA and English fans across their island as they spread out to celebrate that win on Saturday, a chant based off of the invention of soccer in England and a 1996 song.
However the feel-good vibes around coach Gareth Southgate’s squad, in England’s first World Cup semi-finals since 1990, have also had a darker side.
Fans in Nottingham smashed up a bus stop and a car in the city’s center, though local police told Nottingham Live that no arrests had been made.
In central London, an ambulance for the city’s health service was damaged as fans climbed on top of it and cheered.
“Obviously we are chuffed with the result thi afternoon but there is absolutely NO excuse to vandalize emergency service vehicles by jumping on them,” London’s Joint Response Unit said on Twitter.
“This vehicle is now off the road and unable to respond to patients. We are better than this England.”
English football fans are well known for their raucous behavior, though incidents in Russia itself have been limited.
Many “Three Lions” supporters decided to stay home because of international tensions and previous violence with Russian fans at the 2016 European Championships in France and bought 32,000 tickets to the matches as of early June.
England and Russia could have met in a semi-final match this week, though Croatia beat the host nation on penalty kicks Saturday night.
