Marcus Berg had another chance in the 71st minute with a shot Pickford just managed to get a finger on, pushing the ball over the bar.

England's match against Sweden is their biggest since their last World Cup quarter-final twelve years ago, against Portugal at Germany 2006.

England is headed to the World Cup semifinals for the third time after beating Sweden 2-0 in the quarterfinals Saturday in Samara, Russia.

Three Lions on a Shirt will continue to be sung in the build-up to Wednesday night's last-four match in Moscow and the memes and the dreams will continue but part of the job has already been done: "after a regrettable period of absence, Southgate has brought football home again".

"We have to be here another week, and it's up to us now which games we play in".

"The margins are quite small in the game".

"I wasn't born the last time England reached a World Cup semi-final", said Pickford.

Most England fans were very, very grateful for modern technology.

There was another against Sweden, with Maguire heading in a driven corner from Ashley Young in the 30th minute.

"It's a great achievement and we owed it to the fans, when you see how they have been backing us, both here and at home".

Raheem Sterling has faced some criticism over his struggles to score for England and just before halftime his doubters were handed ammunition when he was twice left alone to bear down on Sweden keeper Robin Olsen.

Rather, in this case, a dual celebration - of the happy union and England winning the match thanks to Harry Maguire and Dele Alli. We did create some opportunities at the start of the second half'.

It was another typical England set piece and Maguire's first worldwide goal.

"I can't speak highly enough of the whole squad and whole group of staff because it is so united in there".

"So much preparation went into it and I thought we were fantastic today". He said: "It was a mature performance in a high-pressure game".

"We were brilliant at set-pieces, crosses into the box and we are buzzing". Let us know in the comments section below!
