Early semi-final odds point to England and France final

Leading by example England captain Harry Kane’s reaction to the win was muted like most of his players

Leading by example England captain Harry Kane’s reaction to the win was muted like most of his players

Jordan Pickford says this England team can go and create their own history, after the country reached the semi-finals of the World Cup for just the third time ever. It's coming home and we need you to know that.

In a tweet, London Ambulance Service said: "We're delighted with the result, but this has put a big dampener on the celebrations for us".

England crowned another goalscoring hero named Harry on Saturday, but it was Maguire, not Kane, who helped the Three Lions into the last four of a World Cup for the first time in a generation.

Before the 2018 finals in Russian Federation began, England hadn't scored from a corner at a World Cup since Matthew Upson's consolation when Germany ran riot in Bloemfontein.

"Before the game, we wanted to be here another week".

One of the best qualified to speak about England's chances is Andrea, founder of Italian site "Il Calcio Inglese" for aficionados of the English game on the peninsula.

Sweden accounted for the Netherlands and Italy as part of the qualifying campaign, and topped a tough group in Russian Federation that included holders Germany.

The Magic, Hornets and Bulls have completed a three-team trade, according to a report from ESPN. Grant's per game averages for points, rebounds, and assists saw year-to-year jumps in 2017-18.

From there, England would not look back, controlling the pace of the match and never ceding much ground to Sweden. We've managed to use the disappointment [from Euro 2016] to learn from because you don't want that feeling again.

Meanwhile, here is what Gareth Southgate said.

"That collective (spirit) is why we are here", Southgate told reporters. "We'll just check if there's any reaction to that".

Harry Maguire opened up the scoring in the first half as England continued to excel on set pieces and free kicks. It would send out the wrong message to all players - for the younger players and the England youth groups.

"But I go back to the fact that it isn't about me".

"We have played some players who are very tender years in their careers but we believe in them". They are really important messages for us.

How they got there Croatia after winning Group D with a 100 per cent record have had to grit their way through the knockout stages with penalty shoot-out wins over Denmark and hosts Russian Federation. "It's another massive game in the semi and one that we will have belief in".
