London Ambulance Service released images of the damage, adding:

We're delighted with the result, but this has put a big dampener on the celebrations for us: while our officer attended a call nearby, this car was damaged in Borough High Street during the celebrations after the game, it's now off the road to be repaired.

Millwall Supporters Club set up a Justgiving page to raise money for repairs and have already passed their £5,000 target.

At the Millwall Supporters Club we think it is very important to help our local community, so we want to help to raise funds to help with the repair of an emergency response vehicle that was damaged after the England v Sweden game in the World Cup 2018 Quarter Final. We are very grateful for any donations and support you can offer.

If the insurance company pays for the repairs, all monies raised will be donated to the Local Ambulance Service whose vehicle has sustained this damage.
