That was England's eighth set-piece goal at this World Cup, but, while it is seemingly lethal from dead balls, apart from Kane it is not blessed with too many other sharp shooters.

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

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.

Then, as Sweden looked to get back into the match, the favorites finished them off.

England dominated the ball in Samara and were good value for the victory, but did have goalkeeper Jordan Pickford to thank for avoiding a nervous ending.

Viktor Claesson drilled over for Sweden early on with an ambitious attempt from distance, while Harry Kane, the tournament's leading scorer with six goals, dragged wide after a penetrating run by Raheem Sterling.

The lively Sterling should have doubled the lead on the stroke of half-time when he brilliantly controlled Jordan Henderson's lofted pass, but he was unable to find a way past Robin Olsen and his follow-up was blocked by Andreas Granqvist. It was a sign of what was to come - direct balls, long throws, pressing - but it didn't trouble England.

England play their semi-final at Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium on Wednesday, when they meet the winners of Saturday's second quarter-final between hosts Russian Federation and Croatia.
