Kyle Walker's tweet about Harry Maguire goes viral after debut England goal

The Swedish ambassador to the United Kingdom has given a masterclass in how to be a gracious loser after he was praised for his classy response to England beating his team in the quarter final of the World Cup.

Jordan Pickford celebrates at full-time.

Goals from Harry Maguire and Dele Alli secured a resounding win over the Swedes.

But the man of the match for Schmeichel was fellow keeper Jordan Pickford, whose "outstanding" saves allowed England to play with composure afforded by a two-goal cushion as they sailed into the semi-finals against Russian Federation or Croatia. "The win sends us through and that's the main thing", Maguire said.

"We can go and create our own history, but now it is about rest and recovery for the next game".

Gareth Southgate's England make quarter-final win look comfortable
They had their moments of spectacular football but when they needed to they ground out wins against well-organised teams.

"We knew it was going to be hard and what they bring to the party, and we managed it very well", he said on BBC One.

England have a future star in Harry Maguire, and benefitted from a Jordan Pickford masterclass, but it is too early for the "Football's coming home!" chants, warns RT's Peter Schmeichel. It was also their first clean sheet of this edition, helping them avoid the fate of the Belgium team from 1986, who were the last team make the semis without a single clean sheet.

He added: "When I have digested the result, I will support Three Lions".

An England super-fan took his love for Gareth Southgate's men to the next level after tattooing the names of all 23 squad members onto his body.

Even though it has been many years since Maguire has played for Sheffield United, the club and their fans are still very proud of how well he has done since.
