The World Cup finally caught up with overachieving Sweden

Sweden vs Mexico

Saturday's 2-0 win over Sweden in Samara took Gareth Southgate's side into the last four, and a Moscow date with Croatia next week, with goals from Harry Maguire and Dele Alli settling the issue.

England cruised by Sweden to book their place in the last four of the World Cup, reaching their first semi-final since Italia 90.

England sink Sweden to make World Cup semifinals for the first time in 28 years. "We've got to this point because the collective has been so strong and we played an opponent whose identity is clear and whose togetherness has at times been too much to handle for us over the years".

"In the first half I wasn't as sharp or as good on the ball as I should have been, but you have those games and thankfully the team played so well".

After a tepid opening half hour, Maguire was able to spring above his marker and latch on to the end of a floated Ashley Young corner to give the Three Lions the lead.

Kane was kept relatively quiet, having scored in six consecutive worldwide appearances, but becomes the first England captain to lead the Three Lions into a FIFA World Cup semi-final since 1990.

So, I am not anxious at all now, " he said.

So how are the team feeling as they prepare to play Croatia on Wednesday? It was England's eighth set-piece goal of its 11 in Russian Federation, and the center back's first in worldwide soccer. "Football's coming to homes everywhere".

"Without the commitment of a couple of wives who have let their husbands come back having given birth - I hope they all feel really part of this now because we don't do that without everybody's support".

The killer blow, however, arrived in the 59th minute as Jesse Lingard's teasing cross into the box was met by Alli unmarked at the far post to head powerfully past Olsen. The squad last won the World Cup in 1966. We got goals from both areas we thought we would as we worked on those. But youth, efficiency, and belief have carried this team within one victory of the World Cup final. We were faced with a good team, England were the best team today.

"They were better than we were and I have the greatest respect and congratulations to England".
