England roar into World Cup semis

08 Juillet, 2018, 04:08 | Auteur: Adelaide Bullion

England advanced to their first FIFA World Cup™ semi-final since Italy 1990 with a 2-0 win over Sweden thanks to a pair of headed goals by Harry Maguire and Dele.

With all this in mind, it was inevitable that the man chosen to oversee England's next game would be under a little more scrutiny than is usually expected. Not even the England side containing stars like Beckham, Steven Gerrard and a young Wayne Rooney ever got this far at a major tournament.

Ibrahimovic and Beckham - teammates at four clubs during their playing days - made a wager on the World Cup quarterfinal between England and Sweden on Saturday.

"His first game in Moldova he talked about just being desperate not to make a mistake".

England had laboured without reward before Ashley Young lined up a corner on the left and his curled effort was met by Maguire charging forward with conviction and barging Emil Forsberg out of his way to power a header down into the net.

We've got to be here for another week so it's up to us now which games we play in.

But we really like them.

United Kingdom economic outlook promising says Bank of England Governor Mark Carney
Carney said recent data had given him "greater confidence" that weak first-quarter growth "was largely due to the weather". Through reduced trade alone, the effect on the global economy would be around 1% of gross domestic product, he said.

Then, as Sweden looked to get back into the match, the favorites finished them off.

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

Since coming in, the former defender and his team have looked to instil a new philosophy in the players and the coach was quick to credit these changes with England's success in Russian Federation.

A chant of "On our way, on our way, to Moscow, on our way" came from England fans in one corner of the Samara Arena. Sterling in particular proved a bright spark with his movement and pressing, and was unfortunate not to open his account - thwarted by goalkeeper Robin Olsen. This is the first time you've been to the semis in 28 years and, very probably, your best chance to win the World Cup since the last time you did back in 1966.

"It's a great achievement for the team".

"So much preparation for this game, I thought we were fantastic, Sweden made it hard". We had to score those of course but we were faced with a good team.

"We know. We still know there's a big game ahead, we looked composed, like we controlled the game, we just have to go again". "I spoke to the lads today, and none of us fancied going home".
