England Fans Invaded An IKEA After Beating Sweden At The World Cup

The goals were scored by Harry Maguire and Dele Alli and both were well-worked thumping headers and those two also have wonderful stories to tell.

England was 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.

"It means a lot to us", Tottenham player Dier, speaking in Portuguese to ESPN Brasil's Francisco de Laurentiis, said. "Today our spirit was as good as theirs and our quality a little bit better".

The midfielder nodded home in the second half of his side's 2-0 win in Samara.

England's Dele Alli, 2nd left, scores his side's second goal during the quarterfinal match between Sweden and England at the 2018 soccer World Cup in the Samara Arena, in Samara, Russia, Saturday, July 7, 2018.

While England's victory was one-sided it was not easy.

Spain hail La Liga star Luka Modric on their front page, but declare "England are back" after 28 years fighting for a return to a World Cup semi-final.




It was predictable in many ways, therefore, that the deadlock was broken from a set piece.

Maguire epitomises the graft this squad have put in over the years and headed home his first worldwide goal after 30 minutes, continuing his rapid ascent from fan in France at Euro 2016 to England hero in Russian Federation. Mikael Lustig's absence was notable in the Swedish defence that, for the first time at this World Cup, had troubles in the air.

England make it on Venezuela's national newspaper's backpage, with the headline "Semifinal Set".

Pickford then showed terrific reflexes to tip over an effort from Berg, who shot on the turn after being picked out in the area by substitute John Guidetti.

They lacked the resilience displayed in the last-16 defeat of Switzerland, but Andersson said the outcome was through England's excellence more than anything.

"We're still not done, we've still got a big game coming up and we believe we can definitely reach the final".

But experiencing the misery at Euro 2016 as players - or as a fan in the stadium like Maguire - helped a Harry Kane-led England advance relatively serenely to their first World Cup semifinal since 1990, according to Southgate. "We will all be depressed but when you lean back and analyse it, all in all, we will be quite satisfied later but right now it is hard".
