England make it to first semi-final in 28 years

England make it to first semi-final in 28 years

The last time Sweden reached the semi-finals was in U.S. 1994 where they finished third while England last made it into semi-finals in Italy 1990.

The Three Lions continue to roar.

After the game, Harry Maguire said: "It was my first worldwide goal on the biggest stage of them all".

Alli proved his critics wrong two minutes before the hour mark when he met Kieran Trippier's cross with a deft header to put England firmly in the ascendancy.

The scoreline stayed the same for the remainder, with Alli, Raheem Sterling and Harry Kane continuing to menace Sweden's defence, while Jordan Pickford made a string of smart saves to preserve England's clean sheet.

The chant of "On our way, on our way, to Moscow, on our way" came from England fans in one corner of the Samara Arena throughout the match, and the team's march to the Russian capital is being fuelled by goals from set pieces.

Reflecting during his post-match press conference, Andersson told the assembled reporters (via Sky Sports) that he could envisage England going on to win the World Cup.

Dead from Heat-Wave Related Causes in Quebec
Public Health Minister Lucie Charlebois said none of the deaths in Quebec took place in public health institutions. Montreal-area paramedics weren't expecting a big drop-off in calls on Friday despite the more bearable conditions.

The Sunday People, meanwhile, have re-worked a familiar British saying for the back-page headline of "Keep Calm and Harry On" - very good - but this is caveated with "Who are we kidding... we're playing Croatia in semis!"

"The resilience of the team and togetherness was special today".

The overachieving hosts, the lowest ranked nation in the tournament, were trying to make it to the World Cup semifinals for the first time since the Soviet Union team finished fourth at the 1966 tournament in England.

"It's hard to create opportunities against them". Being both British and Swedish, we were on the edge of our seats during the game and we would like to say 'grattis!' (that's congratulations in Swedish) to the England team for getting through to the semi-finals.

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

"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'm sure the fans back home. we'll see some videos".

The World Cup 2018 semifinals will match France vs. "We then created chances at the start of the second half and if we had scored it would have revived the game".
