'Bring on Brazil'
England's 3-0 win over Denmark dominates the front and back pages of Sunday's British newspapers.

'Bring on Brazil' is the headline screaming out from the front page of the Sunday Mirror as the papers look ahead to England's potential quarter-final against Ronaldo and company.

There is euphoria about England's 3-0 second round win over Denmark and most papers suggest England can now reach the final on 30 June.

The News of the World thinks England can go all the way and their front page headline is 'One Dane Three to go'.

England coach Sven-Goran Eriksson and captain Beckham are quoted as saying "the best is yet to come" from the team.

Triumphalism

Midfielder Kieron Dyer suggests that in central defender Rio Ferdinand, England possess the best player in the world.

The mood of triumphalism is not confined to the tabloids.

Many of the broadsheets also predict that England will go on to achieve greater things.

Paul Wilson says that England can now "dare to dream" in The Observer.

"If England can hold their nerve, and they appear to have a manager and captain who can, they can go all the way to the final," he writes.

There are a plethora of puns at the expense of defeated Denmark.

Referring to Thomas Sorenson's mistake that gifted England their opening goal, the Mail on Sunday's headline is 'Danish butter fingers hand it on a plate to Sven's men'.

The paper also says the 'Boys Dane Good' as they knocked in three goals to end Denmark's World Cup before half-time.

The game was, according to the Sunday Mirror, 'Three-asy' for England.

The Sunday Express says England won 'Dane set and match' and that the country is now in 'Heaven'.

The Sunday People gives lavish praise to Beckham under the headline 'Gol-dane-balls'.

But there is a rare note of caution, with Brazilian striker Ronaldo insisting he and his side are edging "nearer to their best".
