  • Sweden are'bloody difficult to play against

David Beckham and Zlatan Ibrahimovic have upped the stakes on Saturday's World Cup quarter-final.

Yet the performances of Gareth Southgate's squad - the second youngest at the tournament - are being celebrated wildly back home.

Although Wright's colleague quickly retorted that there were still other handsome women who were "happy" following England's win.

The only notable action of the first 20 minutes saw each side miss the target, Viktor Claesson firing over for Sweden from range before Harry Kane skewed wide after a promising Raheem Sterling break.

We have lads, Gareth Southgate had said, "from Barnsley, Leeds, Bolton, Blackburn".

Mark Lawrenson, BBC Sport: "The thing that impressed me most about England against Colombia was the way they stood up to the provocation they faced".

By the end of the opening quarter, England were beginning to show more ambition but the Three Lions opened the scoring from another set piece with Maguire powering a header into the bottom corner from 12 yards after meeting Ashley Young's corner. "We have always said we would take one game at a time and we can go on and create our own history".

The first of those three games saw the Three Lions take on Sweden in Samara in the World Cup quarter-final on Saturday afternoon. They finished ahead of the Netherlands in qualifying, knocked out Italy in the play-offs for the finals, came top of a group ahead of Germany and Mexico and then disposed of the 6th ranked side in the world Switzerland in the second round.

"I think we have worked hard at establishing a clear identity", he said. Sterling got hold of the loose ball but his shot was deflected over.

Pickford had relatively little to do in a quiet first half, but the England goalkeeper produced a vital stop to claw away a Marcus Berg header minutes after the restart.

Sterling's movement was very good, though, causing Sweden's slow defense problems throughout. It was a sign of what was to come - direct balls, long throws, pressing - but those basic tactics didn't trouble England.

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

England play their semi-final at Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium on Wednesday, when they meet the winners of Saturday's second quarter-final between hosts Russian Federation and Croatia. "I wanted to say that already on the pitch, too, to our players".
