England boss Gareth Southgate hails Harry Maguire’s World Cup impact

Sweden vs Mexico

Goals from Harry Maguire and Deli Alli pushed England into the last four of the Fifa World Cup for the first time in 28 years, as the team saw off opponents Sweden in the Russian city of Samara.

England midfielder Eric Dier feels the team can inspire future generations after they reached a first World Cup semifinal since 1990 here.

"We're one step closer to doing that but we still know that we've got games ahead of us".

His delivery for Maguire's goal was excellent and he provided width down England's left-hand side against a narrow and slow Swedish team.

"I think we were fearless enough to play at times and open them up, and probably could have had a couple more".

David Beckham and Wayne Rooney have trolled Zlatan Ibrahimovic after England beat Sweden 2-0 on Saturday in the quarterfinals of the World Cup in Russian Federation.

Few outside the England camp predicted such a remarkable run in Russian Federation, and after the match Southgate was in no mood to downplay the fact that his team are now within one game of a first World Cup final since 1966.

"We're enjoying it, the fans are enjoying it, I'm sure we'll see some videos later of the fans enjoying it".

John Stones: Colombia "dirtiest team" I have ever faced
I said before the tournament that if we can't come here just to get through the games and see what happens - there is no point in doing that.

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

England have proven themselves deadly from set pieces in Russian Federation and the first goal in 30th-minute proved how well they have weaponized the dead ball.

What fans will be most interesting in now, though, is the status with which England will enter that future game at Wembley. Long balls and different to what we have faced so far. I'm really pleased for Dele [Alli]. They complement each other well and although Kane was not at his best against Sweden, and although attention focussed on Sterling wasting a clear first-half chance when through on goal, they are ideal playing together to cause problems for Croatia's centre-backs.

When Alli got in behind some poor Swedish defense to meet a Jesse Lingard cross at the back post, England went two-up.

England goalkeeper Jordan Pickford was notably called into action early in the second half when he saved Marcus Berg's header.

Sweden last made it to the semifinals in 1994.

Victor Lindelof has been one of if not the standout player for Sweden at this World Cup.
