  • A Harry Maguire header gave England the lead 30 minutes

They were set on their way when Maguire rose imperiously to head home from a corner and Alli added the killer blow after the break as England showed they are not entirely dependent on the tournament's leading scorer Harry Kane for goals.

There were chaotic scenes up and down the country after Harry Maguire and Dele Alli struck either side of half-time, both with headers, as nerveless England coasted to a routine 2-0 win.

But Dele doubled the Three Lions' lead when he timed his run at the back post and headed in a cross delivered by Jesse Lingard.

Following today's 2-0 waltz past sorry Sweden, the BBC crew got the party started with Alan Shearer, Gary Lineker and Rio Ferdinand among those in high spirits celebrating with a sing-song.

Gareth Southgate's charges also overcame a mental hurdle that has seen England always falter in penalty shoot-outs in major competitions.

The two sides will enter into the last eight encounter fully aware that victory for either nation will take them a step closer towards World Cup glory.

"We will enjoy tonight, I hope everybody at home enjoys tonight because as we know, it is not very often that it has happened", he said.

Harry Maguire opened the scoring for England - heading the ball home from an Ashley Young corner half an hour into the game. "They are all top people and are the reason we are in the semi-final just as much as any other".

"England are absolutely good enough to win the World Cup".

Many also appreciated goalkeeper Jordan Pickford performance as well. "We've scored set-play goals because of him up to this point and he's got the one he deserves".

The first of those three games saw the Three Lions take on Sweden in Samara in the World Cup quarter-final on Saturday afternoon.
