When are semifinal matches? France vs. Belgium, Croatia vs. England

England vs Sweden tactics

Samara - Sweden coach Janne Andersson said England are capable of winning the Soccer World Cup after seeing his side beaten 2-0 by Gareth Southgate's side in the quarter-finals on Saturday.

Eric Dier believes England can still reach new heights in Russian Federation after securing their first World Cup semi-final in a generation.

Around 85 per cent of England fans are expected to watch matches at home, with the CRR saying they are likely to fork out a total of about £1.2bn on food and drink if the England team gets to the final.

"Until that corner kick by Ashley Young which gave them the chance to take the lead, we were doing well and had the match under control".

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

England's match against Sweden is their biggest since their last World Cup quarter-final twelve years ago, against Portugal at Germany 2006.

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.

"I am not sure anything went wrong, as such", he said. It was Maguire's first global goal, and England's 10th of the tournament. "I've dreamt about it", he told a media conference.

Maguire outjumped the much smaller Emil Forsberg to nod low into the corner, as England scored for the eighth time in Russian Federation from a dead-ball situation.

England, the 1966 World Cup champions, last reached the semifinals in 1990.

England promptly cranked up the pressure and pulled further ahead on 59 minutes when a completely unmarked Alli sent a thumping header past Olsen after a first-time cross by Jesse Lingard.

Others noted that it's not the first Fortnite dance Alli has done during a game, nor is it the first time one of the dances has been performed during the World Cup. To be able to play we want to play looking forward, we need goalkeepers of that ilk.

And Kemp was equally enthusiastic when Jordan Pickford made a stunning second-half save which kept England in front. We got goals from both areas we thought we would as we worked on those.
