A Harry Maguire header gave England the lead 30 minutes

Harry Maguire and Dele Alli scored with headers to advance England to the penultimate stage where they will face either Croatia or host nation Russian Federation.

England's defender Harry Maguire (R) celebrates past England's defender John Stones after scoring the opener during the Russian Federation 2018 World Cup quarter-final football match between Sweden and England at the Samara Arena in Samara on July 7, 2018.

Following today's 2-0 waltz past sorry Sweden, the BBC crew got the party started with Alan Shearer, Gary Lineker and Rio Ferdinand among those in high spirits celebrating with a sing-song.

"We had to withstand a lot of physical pressure", said England coach Gareth Southgate.

11 - Dele's goal was England's 11th at Russian Federation 2018, equalling the country's record of most goals at a single World Cup set in 1966, the first and only edition when they went on to lift the trophy.

Speaking after the game, captain Harry Kane said: "I thought we were fantastic today, Sweden made it very hard".

As the World Cup continues we may have to witness other celebratory Fortnite moves, so try your best to keep that old saying in mind: Don't hate the player, hate the dances inspired by video games.

The surprising run in Russian Federation is being fuelled by goals from set pieces, and there was another against Sweden when Maguire headed in a corner from Ashley Young in the 30th minute. "They are all top people and are the reason we are in the semi-final just as much as any other".

Jordan Pickford made excellent saves to deny Marcus Berg, twice, and Viktor Claesson after the break but England generally looked the more unsafe side and were rewarded when Alli headed the second from a Jesse Lingard cross in the 59th minute.

Sterling expertly controlled a long ball before seeing his attempt to round Robin Olsen halted, but the winger then failed to be decisive when getting a second opportunity and instead of passing to Kane who was waiting 16 yards out, a shot was deflected wide.

If you're unfamiliar, in Fortnite you can make characters perform several dances in the emotes menu - with many taking the moves into the outside world.

England had not kept a clean sheet in their four previous matches and had Pickford to thank for ensuring they did not concede this time. "I can't speak highly enough of the whole squad", he said.

Although Sweden rallied in the final 30 minutes, forcing two good saves from goalkeeper Jordan Pickford, England comfortably held on for its first shutout of the tournament.

The Sweden team got in a huddle after the game and Andersson spoke to the players.

The first of those three games saw the Three Lions take on Sweden in Samara in the World Cup quarter-final on Saturday afternoon.
