England vs. Sweden final score, recap

Mexico gosal

England will be looking to reach the semi-finals of the World Cup for the first time in 28 years when they take on Sweden this afternoon.

England controlled the game for long periods against Sweden, but needed three excellent second-half saves from Jordan Pickford to secure a 2-0 win after goals from Harry Maguire and Dele Alli.

"We've not got a good record against them, I think we've always underestimated them", Southgate said following a dramatic victory over Colombia in the last 16.

England coach Gareth Southgate, who was part of the squad in 2002, conceded previous teams had perhaps not treated Sweden with the respect they deserved.

"They are a good side, who did not give a lot of openings".

"I was going to say if we go two penalty kicks we'll be fine, but I can't say that anymore can we", one Swedish fan said.

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.

The Swedes were playing in the World Cup quarterfinals for the first time since 1994, when they reached the semifinals.

Hamilton was able to pull out some quick laps, yet Vettel was quick to respond, keeping his rival at an arm's length. But Wolff's counterpart at Ferrari , Arrivabene, was livid.

Croatia will next play England in the semifinals on Wednesday in Moscow. We've got to stay focused. Football might actually come home for the first time since 1966.

But although the Three Lions progressed and Alli scored for the first time in Russian Federation, he felt he could have done more to impact the match.

Kane's team-mate Dele Alli has come under fire for what some perceive to be below-par performances at this tournament, but Southgate believes the Tottenham midfielder could hold the key to unlocking a stout Swedish defensive backline.

Jesse Lingard 8 - As usual, Lingard's pace and movement made him a constant menace, and his cross for England's second goal was perfectly placed.

Others noted that it's not the first Fortnite dance Alli has done during a game, nor is it the first time one of the dances has been performed during the World Cup.

"He's the prototype of what a modern goalkeeper should be", Southgate said of Pickford, who only made his worldwide debut last November.
