England will not 'get a better chance to make World Cup final'

Jesse Lingard and (probably) Dele Alli will look to make runs beyond the strikers into the opposition box, although Alli hasn't looked fit throughout this tournament and might well be replaced by Ruben Loftus-Cheek, who would play a slightly more conservative central midfield role.

There were flickers from England's attack here, and it was clear, for example, that Southgate wanted his side to release Sterling early and turn Sweden's centre-backs around.

"This is why he's in the team", Ferdinand said of Raheem Sterling on BBC One.

England booked their place in the quarter-finals by winning a penalty shootout at a World Cup for the first time, progressing at Colombia's expense.

The keeper saved superbly from Viktor Claesson before tipping a shot from Berg over the bar and that was enough to ensure Swedish hopes of reaching their first semi-final since 1994 were dashed.

But first, Gareth Southgate's side needs to deal with Sweden.

The two nations face each other in the quarter-finals at the Samara Arena and the two names that are very familiar amongst Man United supporters have plenty riding on the match.

Ashley Young's delivery from the left was good but Maguire deserved the credit, tossing aside Emil Forsberg to power a header past Robin Olsen in the 30th minute.

England maintained composure following a goal that Sterling could - and perhaps should - have added to before the break.

"It's a game we are really looking forward to".

Had Sterling made it two on half time, beating the defence to Jordan Henderson's long pass but trying and failing to take the ball round Olsen, England might have been virtually home and dry.

Who would bet against England at least reaching the final at this point?

A fine cross from the left found Berg at the far post, with his powerful header forcing an outstanding one-handed stop out of Pickford. The Manchester United man sent an absolutely brilliant ball to the back post, where Alli ran onto it and headed easily.

England's last trip to the World Cup semifinals was in 1990. The three-man defence should work well against Sweden's front two, with Harry Maguire and Kyle Walker having some freedom to advance with the ball after they and John Stones have played out from the back.

Eric Dier could replace Tottenham team-mate Alli.
