England's Southgate eyeing Moscow semi-final clash with Russian Federation

England vs Sweden tactics

"I'd love to win a World Cup, England would love to win a World Cup".

"Over the years we have underestimated them". Here's how they did it.

Sweden have only conceded two goals at this tournament.

And England captain Harry Kane is feeling confident.

The first 20 minutes were cagey with neither side settling into the match.

Liverpool's Jordan Henderson was stretching the Swedish defence from side to side, tiring the legs wrapped in yellow socks. He is best at making those runs for the goal and he can finish.

Sterling expertly controlled a long ball before seeing his attempt to round Robin Olsen halted, but the winger then failed to be decisive when getting a second opportunity and instead of passing to Kane who was waiting 16 yards out, a shot was deflected wide.

Although Sweden rallied in the final 30 minutes, forcing two good saves from goalkeeper Jordan Pickford, England comfortably held on for its first shutout of the tournament. "Football's coming to homes everywhere". "I've dreamt about it", he told a media conference.

A few hours later, the Three Lions banished their penalty shoot-out hoodoo by defeating Colombia on spot-kicks following a feisty 1-1 draw in Moscow.

England will face Russian Federation or Croatia in the semifinals.

He also started a lot of England's moves, passing from the back.

They have done so off the back of a change in attitude, implemented by their 47-year-old coach.

Both players were key cogs to England's progressive first half but without being standouts.

Gareth Southgate's understandably very proud of his players!

"This World Cup has been insane so far so hopefully it will continue like that". Rashford did gain a late cameo once again, entering the pitch just into additional time.

Others noted that it's not the first Fortnite dance Alli has done during a game, nor is it the first time one of the dances has been performed during the World Cup. The Manchester United defender's partnership with Andreas Granqvist has been tremendously solid.

"We're enjoying it, the fans are enjoying it, I'm sure we'll see some videos later of the fans enjoying it".

England make it on Venezuela's national newspaper's backpage, with the headline "Semifinal Set".

The Sweden team got in a huddle after the game and Andersson spoke to the players.
