But after the lengthy game came to an end he took to his Twitter page to share his disappointment.
Piers simply wrote: “It didn’t come home”, alongside an angry swearing, and crying emoji.
He later added on Instagram: “I admire every player who steps up & shows the balls to take a penalty in a game that important.
“Especially when they’re just 19, 21 & 23. Proud of you @bukayosaka87 @sanchooo10 @marcusrashford – you missed, and we lost, but you’ve all got guts.”Adele remembered her roots as she posed in an England shirt[/caption]
Stacey Solomon also took to social media to share her reaction, posting a black and white photo of her hand on the back of her son’s head while she comforted him.
She wrote: “Just wanted to say… Thank you to the England team for giving our family so many exciting memories.
“It’s been so exciting to watch and although we are gutted for you all, you’ve been amazing.”
Adele even posted a rare social media photo to mark the occasion, showing off her recent seven stone weight loss while posing in an England shirt.
She wrote: “You did us so proud! You brought our game home and brought us all together ”
Elsewhere, Kate Garraway’s son Billy appeared to break down in tears, with the GMB favourite sharing a photo of him burying his head into a cushion on the sofa.
She wrote: “God it’s heartbreaking isn’t it – but thank you #englandteam for getting us close enough to feel a united moment of joy – and for giving a whole new generation a chance to believe.”
Dermot O’Leary shared a photo of Bukayo Saka being hugged by England manager Gareth Southgate and wrote: “Keep that beautiful head up, Saka. You did your club and country proud.”This pic of Gareth Southgate with Saka has been doing the rounds[/caption]

Pulling a sad face as she watched live at the stadium, Amber assured the team that they’d done us proud.
She wrote: “You did us proud, all of you, and we love you.”
And over in the actual Love Island villa, Islanders were treated to a viewing of the final in a shock U-turn from producers.
When Italy were confirmed as the winners, they all shouted in despair, with the boys putting their heads in their hands.
