England fans celebrate win over Sweden by storming IKEA and climbing buses

Before England bounced Sweden, a hatful of ESPN FC correspondents weigh in on whether "it's coming home" in the latest episode of Project Russia.

England fans in London were so overwhelmed by their team's World Cup quarterfinal win over Sweden on Saturday that they took their excitement to a local IKEA store.

Videos on social media showed some fans running into an IKEA in Stratford, east London, jumping on the furniture and just being a general nuisance.

IKEA even issued a statement, but the Swedish company didn't sound that upset.

"We are aware of a small group of fans celebrating the match result in one of our stores," the statement said. "Being both British and Swedish, we were on the edge of our seats during the game and we would like to say 'Grattis!' [congratulations in Swedish] to the England team for getting through to the semi-finals."

The celebrations cut across England as rowdy fans took to the streets, with videos showing fans in Manchester, Birmingham and Nottingham all focusing their attention on buses and bus stops.

One notable incident occurred in Clapham, south London, when a man decided to leave his spot atop a double-decker bus, though his landing didn't go as planned.

You still have two games to go, England fans. Maybe pace yourselves? Or why not ... enjoy it while it lasts.
