  • England's Dele Alli celebrates scoring their second goal

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.

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