Southgate's England stars try to keep their heads as the memes and hashtags swirl

It was England's 11th goal in Russian Federation, equaling the national record of 11 goals scored on the run to the World Cup title in 1966.

The England team's official Twitter account proudly shared news of the victory.

England were given an unlikely early boost on their Saturday of destiny when the Sweden team was woken by a fire alarm in their team hotel. "This has been an incredible #WorldCup run and we've enjoyed every minute".

Today we'll find out whether football could be coming home for England, or if the hopes the squad had at winning will be dashed before their eyes.

"I wasn't born the last time England reached a World Cup semi-final", said Pickford.

And despite the score line, the outcome of the match could have been different had England goalkeeper Jordan Pickford not made a string of key saves over the final 45 minutes.

"I got over that (penalty) pretty quickly, just getting focused on the next game", he said.

A long-time favourite of Southgate, his clipped a first-time cross to the back post and Alli had space to head firmly past Olsen in front of the hardy England support.

"I think if you say it's an easy game in a quarter-final of a World Cup, then you are pretty stupid to say that", said Stones.

He came to Russian Federation having only just returned from an operation on a fractured bone in his foot in early March. One of the lowest points for English soccer came two years ago — days after that European Union referendum in Britain — when a team coached by Roy Hodgson was humiliated by Iceland.

"But regardless of what happens, this England side can go onto big things if Southgate is allowed to work with them and those progressing through from the younger teams".

Next up for Roberto Martinez's Belgium is a mouthwatering semi-final with France, who comfortably beat a Uruguay side shorn of the injured Edinson Cavani to back up their thrilling victory against Argentina in the previous round.
