  • England vs Sweden tactics

England achieved something David Beckham's generation never managed: It reached the semifinals of the World Cup.

If anything, England's hero on the day was to be found at the other end of the pitch as keeper Jordan Pickford produced three superb saves to shut out the workmanlike Swedes.

Goals from Harry Maguire and Dele Alli earn England a 2-0 victory over Sweden in Saturday's World Cup quarter-final in Samara.

Headed goals from Harry Maguire and Dele Alli in Samara, and a handful of key saves from goalkeeper Jordan Pickford, sent England through to a last-four showdown with either hosts Russian Federation or Croatia on July 11.

"So much preparation for this game, a quick recovery from the last round [a penalty shootout defeat of Colombia]", Kane said to BBC Sport. "In celebration, we've put one of the nation's favourite dishes, fish and chips, on offer for just £1".

"England are a strong team, especially at set-pieces", Andersson said at a post-match conference. Long balls and different to what we have faced so far. "Onwards" they declare as Maguire leads the celebrations after "England march into the semis" for the first time in 28 years.

England promptly cranked up the pressure and pulled further ahead on 59 minutes when a completely unmarked Alli sent a thumping header past Olsen after a first-time cross by Jesse Lingard.

"I look at them like my brothers and I know they look at me the same and we'd do anything for each other and that's what we've got to do for the rest of the tournament".

"It means a lot to us", Tottenham player Dier, speaking in Portuguese to ESPN Brasil's Francisco de Laurentiis, said.

Leicester defender Maguire headed in the opening goal from a corner on 30 minutes, with Alli adding a second just before the hour. "I felt that we had the match in our hands". 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.

For Sweden, who failed to qualify for the previous two World Cups, it was their best result since finishing third at the 1994 finals.

And it is a step that has tripped England up so many times.
