  • England's Harry Kane needs an ally other than Dele Alli

England has to win two more games to bring the World Cup home, but the enthusiasm some football fans displayed after their team advanced to the semifinals met global expectations.

"The back three were outstanding and Pickford's saves were inspirational, especially the one just after half-time".

"Beckham was the one I always looked up to; the technique, his crossing, on the move or set pieces". The penalty shootout win was the first ever for England at the World Cup.

■ JOE HART opted not to watch England secure their semi-final place and played cricket for hometown club Shrewsbury instead.

Whatever happens in the semifinals or potentially the final, Pickford will return to England as one of the team's star performers in Russian Federation. Now they can dream of a grander ambition. "You deserve this moment - Football's Coming Home! W". I was gutted. But next morning a woman came running after me. English centre-backs bringing the ball out and playing with the composure from the back that they have.

But Russia failed to convert two of their spot-kicks, leaving Ivan Rakitic with match point and the Barcelona man kept his head to seal a 4-3 win.

"We have a plan, an identity and a togetherness that seems water tight", says Mark Ratheram.

Concerned England fans make the same joke about the referee against Sweden
It was England's eighth set-piece goal of its 11 in Russian Federation , and the centre back's first in global football. The Swedes were playing in the World Cup quarterfinals for the first time since 1994, when they reached the semifinals.

"My guys feel like conscript soldiers whose term of service was over just when they were preparing to go into battle".

Former Arsenal keeper Seaman added: 'Some of the criticism he got for the goal [against Belgium] when he went with the top hand was a little bit unjust.

"My first memories of global football are of house parties filled with flags, finger food and football dreams", said Paige Cooper. "Gareth Southgate and his men have awakened my interest enormously".

Southgate lowered expectations before the tournament, highlighting his team's youth and inexperience, with the result that the public was ready to be forgiving and began to view the side nearly as underdogs.

Croatia defender Vida faced possible disciplinary sanctions from Federation Internationale de Football Association after posting a clip dedicating the victory to Ukraine.

Lloris came into the World Cup under some scrutiny after making more errors than usual for Tottenham in the Premier League last season, but he has been mainly solid all tournament and preserved France's lead against Uruguay in the quarterfinals with a low, diving save to keep out a shot from Martin Caceres.
