England dominates to move one step away from World Cup final

England were nearly made to pay straight after the interval and would have been pegged back if Pickford had not produced a top-drawer save to keep out a Berg header.

It's the first time since 1990 that the Three Lions have reached the semi-final of the World Cup and belief that they can end a 52-year wait to become champions is growing.

Gareth Southgate has brought a feel-good factor back to the way global football is regarded by Three Lions fans.

"We have to be here another week, and it's up to us now which games we play in".

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.

"Southgate and England deserve huge credit - and now those expectation levels will rise even more".

In the second half, Sweden looked unsafe as England goalkeeper Jordan Pickford was forced to produce a stunning save after Marcus Berg's towering header looked destined for the back of the net.

Win or lose, the 2016 Wimbledon junior finalist has assured himself another career-high ranking inside the world's top 70. Kyrgios , seeded 15, arrived at Wimbledon in good form after strong runs on the grass in Stuttgart and at Queen's Club.

Centre back Maguire connected with an Ashley Young corner to score his first worldwide goal after 30 minutes as England had much the best of the first half. We controlled the game from start to finish.

"It's a great achievement and we owed it to the fans, when you see how they have been backing us, both here and at home".

"We looked composed", England captain Harry Kane said after the Saturday match (NZT Sunday).

Maguire met up with the same group after the win over Panama, recreating the photo, and those same pals will have been delighted to see him net his first global goal. "I wanted to say that already on the pitch, too, to our players".

"We were sad and we're disappointed", Andersson said, "but we mustn't forget we put in an excellent performance".

Once again, England found an opening through a set piece scored by Harry. Let us know in the comments section below! I kept a clean sheet because all the work I do in training is to showcase on match day.
