  • England beat Sweden to reach first World Cup semis in 28 years

Alli added the second goal by meeting a far-post cross from Jesse Lingard with a powerful header in the 59th, becoming - at 22 - the second-youngest scorer for England at a World Cup. "Today our spirit was as good as theirs and our quality a little bit better".

Hurst was part of the team that claimed England's only World Cup victory to date on home soil in that famous summer of 1966, scoring a hat-trick in a 4-2 win against West Germany.

Harry Maguire and Dele Alli scored as England comfortably defeated Sweden 2-0 in Samara on Saturday to reach the World Cup semi-finals for the first time since 1990.

Sweden slowed the tempo early on as the game got off to a tiresome start, but the first half-chance fell to England as Harry Kane flashed wide from 20 yards after good running from Raheem Sterling.

That was England's eighth set-piece goal at this World Cup, but, while they are seemingly lethal from dead balls, apart from Kane they are not blessed with too many other sharpshooters.

The surprising run in Russian Federation is being fuelled by goals from set pieces, and there was another against Sweden when Maguire headed in a corner from Ashley Young in the 30th minute.

The first of those three games saw the Three Lions take on Sweden in Samara in the World Cup quarter-final on Saturday afternoon. It was a sign of what was to come - direct balls, long throws, pressing - but those basic tactics didn't trouble England .

Une audience record pour les Bleus

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.

England were nearly made to pay straight after the interval and would have been pegged back if Pickford had not produced a top-drawer save to keep out a Berg header.

Captain Harry Kane is the tournament's leading scorer with six goals, although Sweden have kept clean sheets in three of their four matches in Russian Federation.

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.

The last time Sweden reached the semi-finals was in United States of America 1994 where they finished third while England last made it into semi-finals in Italy 1990. "We looked like we controlled the game".
