Concerned England fans make the same joke about the referee against Sweden

  • England- Cropped

England sent in some crosses after but those signs of life were fleeting as Sweden's resolute team shape strangled a side sloppy in possession.

That was somewhat overshadowed by Colombia equalising from the resulting corner but Pickford got his moment in the limelight with a shootout save as England triumphed on penalties.

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.

There was another against Sweden, with Maguire heading in a driven corner from Ashley Young in the 30th minute.

Before Saturday's win, achieved by goals from Harry Maguire and Dele Alli, England had only beaten Sweden twice in their last 15 meetings.

If England do beat Sweden and reach the last four, their next match will be in Moscow on Wednesday night, which will be far more accessible.

The Swedes were playing in the World Cup quarterfinals for the first time since 1994, when they reached the semifinals.

Croatia then went ahead with a soft header in the eleventh minute of extra time but Brazilian-born Fernandes headed the hosts level with five minutes of play remaining to send the game to penalties.

Croatia defender Domagoj Vida also scored in extra time with a header in the 101st minute. 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.

Even at Wimbledon, the home of lawn tennis, updates of England's goals were spread by fans watching or listening to the football match on their cell phones.

"We knew set plays would be key", Maguire said. It was England's eighth set-piece goal of its 11 in Russian Federation, and the centre back's first in global football.

Viktor Claesson's hopeful effort from distance was the best rudimentary Sweden managed in a scrappy opening, but the Three Lions were doing little better as Alli overhit a through ball after snatching possession off over-confident Emil Krafth.

And while both teams, drinking side-by-side, were civil enough during the game.
