  • Sweden shape vs england

But 28 years on, Gareth Southgate's young side have presented themselves with that opportunity following a 2-0 win in this quarter-final against a stubborn Sweden in Samara.

In the second half, Sweden looked risky as England goalkeeper Jordan Pickford was forced to produce a stunning save after Marcus Berg's towering header looked destined for the back of the net.

Gareth Southgate's young guns will play either Russian Federation or Croatia in the second semi-final in Moscow on Wednesday (July 11).

Hurst was part of the team that claimed England's only World Cup victory to date on home soil in that famous summer of 1966, scoring a hat-trick in a 4-2 win against West Germany.

"England were the best team today". It was England's most convincing performance of the group stage when it came to shape and possession, with the team also taking its chances, shooting on frame twice and scoring both of them.

Should he stick to his promise, Ibrahimovic could be in the stands for England's first friendly after the World Cup's completion scheduled to be against Switzerland at Wembley on September 11.

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

They will now face France on Tuesday to determine whether or not they will reach their first final. There is something really special about this squad.

If Kane and Co can continue to keep their feet on the ground, maybe, just maybe, football is coming home on July 15. "We looked like we controlled the game".

"Over the years we have underestimated them". Sharing a throwback picture of the pair, he wrote: "Yo @davidbeckhamif @england wins I buy you dinner where ever you want in the world, but if @swemntwins you buy me whatever I want from @ikeasverige ok?"

Look, we get it England.

Regarding Southgate, Ferdinand added: "I think a lot of people were sceptical when he got the job just under two years ago - is he going to be strong enough, is he going to be able to make the big decisions? We played an opponent who has a clear identity and their collectiveness has been too much for us at times in the past".

The Swedish players were roused from their slumbers and moved out of their rooms, but luckily it turned out to be a false alarm and they could go back to recharging their batteries ahead of their first World Cup quarter-final since 1994.

"I never felt nervous at all during the game and that is how comfortable they made us feel". The victor battles France or Belgium in the 2018 World Cup final on July 15 in Moscow.
