The five English teams in the Champions League are off to the knockout rounds, a feat that no other nation has accomplished in the tournament’s history.
Liverpool was the only team yet to book a place in the Round of 16 heading into the final group stage match, but Jurgen Klopp’s men scored three times in the opening half-hour en route to a decisive 7-0 victory Wednesday.
Of the English teams to qualify, only Chelsea failed to finish first in its group.
It marks the first time since the 2013-14 season that all English clubs have advanced beyond the group stage.
There has not been a Champions League winner from England since Chelsea beat Bayern Munich in 2012.
