PEOPLE living in Stanthorne Avenue, Crewe, turned the clock back during England's 2-0 World Cup win over Trinidad and Tobago on Thursday.
They tied St George's flags across the road and staged a street party just as thousands of fans did when England won the tournament in 1966.
Kath Harvey, 79, helped organise the event, and said everyone had a great time and really got behind David Beckham and the team.
She added: 'There must have been 30 children in the street and they really enjoyed it. It was marvellous seeing them having so much fun.
'We had a gazebo at the end of the street with a TV in so those not watching it through their windows could see the match.
'There was lots of food and drink and people were hosting barbecues and were doing hot-dogs and hamburgers for everyone.
'A little girl who lives further down named Hannah had a party and her mum and dad were out in the street and we celebrated her birthday.
'Jane Lofthouse, who lives next door, helped organise the event with me and we up until 10pm during the week sewing flags to string but Thursday was well worth it.
'There is a great community spirit in the avenue now. It used to be like that years ago.'

FLY the flag for England and win a family meal for five at Crewe's newest pub.
The Chronicle has joined forces with The Waldron pub in Prince Albert Street, Crewe, to reward the family with the Best Dressed World Cup House.
Over the next few weeks our photographers will be out and about snapping those houses and gardens decked out in flags and patriotic colours for the World Cup. At the end of the contest we will pick the best.
Waldron manager, Simone Williams will join us in judging the entries.
She said: 'It's great to see the flags on houses as your drive round Crewe, Nantwich and Sandbach. People do seem to be making a special effort.
'Our customers are right behind England and enjoying the facilities we have here for them to watch the matches.'
The Waldron opened at Christmas following a £850,000 transformation from the former Crewe Job Centre.
Simone added: 'Since the VIP opening, customers have continued to pour in and it's nice to see ladies popping for a coffee and chat during the day.
'We do place a great emphasis on relaxation with lovely furniture and leather settees to lounge on.
'People are often surprised to see we have a pretty beer garden, which is not only heated but has its own large screen TV, perfect for the World Cup.'
