Leeds United's Pontus Jansson reacts on Twitter after England's World Cup victory

England vs Sweden tactics

The last time England had won the World Cup was back in 1966 and the dream has led to increased usage of songs like 'It's coming home'.

Not since Italia '90 and that penalty shoot-out heartbreak at the hands of West Germany have England been one win away from football's grandest stage.

Yet the performances of Gareth Southgate's squad - the second youngest at the tournament - are being celebrated wildly back home.

The celebrations cut across England as rowdy fans took to the streets, with videos showing fans in Manchester, Birmingham and Nottingham all focusing their attention on buses and bus stops.

"I know the fans here are enjoying it", Kane said.

There was another against Sweden, with Maguire heading in a driven corner from Ashley Young in the 30th minute.

England will face Russian Federation or Croatia in the semifinals.

The second goal scored by Dele Alli sealed it for England, it was another header, this time from the Tottenham Hotspur attacking midfielder.

But Russia's geographical vastness and other logistical issues ensured the two national sides played in a quarter-empty stadium - though the official figure, at the end, pegged it at just a tenth short of capacity (44,918). They are still great guys for us, they are heroes.

There was John Stones, now a leader in defence, there was Jordan Henderson, controlling midfield and there was Raheem Sterling who may have missed a golden chance but who stretched the Swedes when all they wanted to do was stay compact and grind this out to a closer finish.

What Trump's pick of Kavanaugh for Supreme Court means for tech
Monday, and it is unclear how much of the last-minute maneuvering is geared to keeping the president's choice a secret. The "Sherpa", or person guiding the nominee through that process, has not yet been confirmed.


Defeats to Mexico and South Korea bookended a remarkable 1-1 draw against Sweden, but it wasn't enough to get them through to the knockout rounds. One of the lowest points for English soccer came two years ago - days after that European Union referendum in Britain - when a team coached by Roy Hodgson was humiliated by Iceland.

"When you go through a battle like that and come through as winners it gives you so much energy and so much belief to do it again".

Croatia, England's next opponents, have constantly varied formation and shifted around their team but Southgate is unlikely to react.

The World Cup 2018 semifinals will match France vs.

Sweden needed a change in approach and immediately after the restart, they nearly found an equaliser when a cross was delivered for Marcus Berg at the back post, but the forward's header was superbly kept out by the left hand of Pickford. Sterling got hold of the loose ball but his shot was deflected over.
