Raheem Sterling and Harry Kane’s goals led Gareth Southgate’s men to the quarter-finals, where they will face Ukraine on Saturday in Rome.
The historic triumph has led to English fans singing ‘It’s Coming Home’ louder than ever – and Mourinho admits he is on board with the celebrations by playing the song himself.
However, the former Chelsea, Manchester United and Tottenham manager warned England not to let their success go to their heads.
The incoming Roma boss insists Southgate’s men should keep their feet on the ground so that they don’t replicate the same mistakes as France, who were shockingly eliminated by Switzerland.
Mourinho told talkSPORT: “I watched the game, I expected to watch a big game.
“Honestly, the geometry was there, the duels were there, both teams respecting each other a lot, but England in my opinion are very, very solid, very compact.
“And then in the right moment, it couldn’t be a better moment to do it [score] with 10 minutes to go, and then the little bit of luck in that one-on-one with [Thomas] Muller.
“I’m really happy for Southgate, the players and the fans. I’m singing ‘it’s coming home’ to show my happiness. but it’s not yet coming home.
“England need balance in the bad moments and in the good moments. The same way media is critical in the bad moments, we have to be balanced now, there’s still a long way to go.
“In the normal conditions England are going to be in the final, because I don’t see them losing against the teams they could face in the next rounds.
“But we must respect football and the unpredictability. France are not in the quarter-finals because they didn’t respect the game in the final 10 minutes.
“I’m very, very pleased. I just hope it ends well, I hope it comes home. But football is football.
“I always say, in the bad moments I don’t want me and my team to be in hell, but in the good moments I don’t want to be in heaven. So I would say to them calm down, and just focus on the next game.
“But, in my opinion, England are ready for anything and I will be very disappointed if we don’t make the final, because we should, we should, we definitely should.”
