Days Gone By: A look back at England in the Euros quarter finals

The Three Lions are continuing their march to Euro 2020 glory this weekend – here's a look back at one of the last times England reached the quarter-finals.
England last reached the final eight in 2012, having achieved the same feat in 2004. But if there is one thing in common with those performances, it's penalties disappointment.
Hoping for glory after finishing second in Group B, England fans in Ipswich were buzzing with anticipation for their 2004 match against eventual finalists Portugal.
Pubs across the town were filled with fans – with Michael Owen putting the Three Lions a goal in front in the third minute, before Portugal pulled one back in the last 10 minutes of the 90.
Sven-Göran Eriksson's men fell behind in extra time thanks to a Rui Costa goal, before Frank Lampard smashed it home from close range to level it five minutes later.
Star man David Beckham missed his first penalty in the shootout before Rui Costa missed Portugal's third. Aston Villa's Darius Vassell missed his before Ricardo's spot-kick secured Portugal's place in the semis.
