  • Who is Emil Forsberg – Sweden's not-so-secret weapon against England

Martin Dodgson, 32, of The Close, Kirkham, said: "I was expecting two-one or maybe one-nil bur we looked comfortable".

'We have no time really to dwell on the past.

"I think Roy took a lot of criticism for that, but he was fearless enough to put a lot of these young players in - and without that experience, we wouldn't have had a day like today because they've learned from that".

England fans in Russian Federation said they were daring to dream of glory on Saturday (July 7) after the national side cruised past Sweden 2-0 and into a World Cup semi-final for the first time in 28 years.

Jakob Johansson will return from the knee injury he sustained after scoring the playoff goal against Italy that got Sweden to the World Cup, and Albin Ekdal showed in Russian Federation that he is well capable of anchoring the midfield with him.

English media heaped praise on Gareth Southgate's team for reaching the World Cup semi-finals and told the country to cancel plans for Wednesday evening when they face Croatia seeking a place in the final.

Despite reaching the semifinals, Southgate was keen to stress that his players were still developing.

Croatia Are Through To The Semi-Finals After A Penalty Shootout
Rakitic stepped up to score the winning kick and earn his country a place in the semi-finals for the first time since 1998. They are still great guys for us, they are heroes.

Harry Kane may not have been responsible for either of England's two goals, but the captain has shortened into 1/7 to be the tournament's top goalscorer, having been available at 1/5 before the match.

"We don't know who we play yet".

"We know that in years to come they will be stronger but today was a huge opportunity for us and not something we wanted to miss out on". "We have an outstanding mentality in these players, a humility and recognition of where they were 18 months ago and the work needed to get to here".

"We have played some players who are very tender years in their careers but we believe in them".

The Mirror says FA chiefs are confident Southgate will snub any big club job if he is head-hunted after the World Cup. "Hopefully he's gaining belief from the performances at this level". That we have got players with super technique.

"His use of the ball is as good as any centre-back in the tournament".
