Zlatan Ibrahimovic loses England-Sweden bet to David Beckham

England's victory on Saturday means the Three Lions will now play Croatia in the semi-final in Moscow on Wednesday night.

England have the opportunity to make history once again this afternoon when they take on Sweden for a place in the World Cup semi-finals in Russian Federation.

Two years ago, he was in the stands watching England crash out at the hands of underdogs Iceland at Euro 2016.

After an edgy start to the game, Harry Maguire settled English nerves with a powerful header with half-an-hour played.

Sweden was eliminated from the 2018 World Cup on Saturday after suffering a 2-0 loss to England at Samara Arena.

The winning goal from Maguire of Leicester City arrived just on 30 minutes, and it was another textbook set piece for England.

England held the lead through the halftime whistle before Dele Alli picked up some insurance.

For June, U.S. adds jobs, but wages lag
From Table B-3, average hourly earnings were +2.7% year over year in June economy-wide, while average weekly earnings were +3.0%. This suggests the Federal Reserve needs to keep raising interest rates with at least two more rate hikes likely this year.

"We knew set plays would be key", Maguire said. Fans stuffed in, from wall-to-wall, cheering for their team to come out ahead. "And also that little ball that Jesse sent in for Dele, that was great".

"Up until that corner, I felt that we had everything under control", Sweden coach Janne Andersson said.

Hart has 75 caps for England and played in nine of their 10 World Cup qualifiers, but missed out on a squad place for the finals as Jordan Pickford, Jack Butland and Nick Pope were all given the nod ahead of him, with Pickford since excelling as No 1 in Russian Federation. He is best at making those runs for the goal and he can finish. He denied the Swedes several more times in the second half.

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

This time he was onside but perhaps clouded by his long wait for a goal, Sterling decided against passing to an open team-mate and instead saw a shot deflected behind by Andreas Granqvist.

And when asked about his own side's poor performance, Andersson commented how it was always going to be tough against a 'really good opponent'.
