England v Sweden attracts record live online audience for BBC

  • England's midfielder Dele Alli holds his leg in pain during the Russia 2018 World Cup round of 16 football match between Colombia and England at the Spartak Stadium in Moscow on July 3

"It was a daft injury by myself", the England goalkeeper recounted. "He went overboard. I feel sorry for the cabbie because he won't be able to work while he gets the auto repaired". It was a bit of anger. "I love the man, but footballs comes first". "I'm fine and I'll live another day, won't I?"

Alli and Gareth Southgate's Three Lions take on Sweden in their World Cup quarter final final on Saturday afternoon and former England under-21 global Baker says Alli's progression has come as no shock whatsoever.

In a heavily centralised country where so much media focus is on London, the current team is drawn from across the land, with the starting line-up for the 2-0 win over Sweden featuring seven players from the North of England and just skipper Harry Kane born in the capital.

England now face Croatia in their semi-final match on Wednesday 11 July which will air on BBC One. The way Pickford's career is progressing, he could be joining that elite group.

Pickford is one of the best goalkeepers in the Premier League, and the former Sunderland star's performances for England at the World Cup in Russian Federation so far have been superb.

He is breaking the mold.

There is something about this young England team and their articulate manager Gareth Southgate that has created a genuine connection not felt for a generation.

"I think we could have achieved more", he said.

"We all agree it has been out best World Cup for decades", he said: "The long-distance train journeys, the lack of sleep, the heat and discomfort have been worthwhile". The abiding memory will likely be an acrobatic save against Colombia that saw him tip Mateus Uribe's dipping long-range effort onto the crossbar at full stretch.

"Is the World Cup any different?" That is what makes the game easier because you understand it more.

Pickford finished the Premier League season with Everton by making two poor mistakes in their loss against West Ham and he was under scrutiny heading into the knock-out stages.

A spokesperson for the Met Police said there had not been a spike in call-outs, despite the hysteria following England's victory over Sweden. In 2007, Scott Carson's mistake, when he spilled a long-range effort into his own net in a decisive qualifying match, contributed to England failing to reach Euro 2008.

"We all are. Not just because of the England win but how we won".

France will be facing Belgium while Croatia will be going up against England.
