Gareth Southgate drops England selection hint for Sweden clash

England reached the semi-finals of the 2018 FIFA World Cup by beating Sweden 2-0 on Saturday.

It was another typical England set piece and Maguire's first worldwide goal.

As reward for their efforts, England face Croatia, who defeated tournament hosts Russian Federation on penalties. 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.

England midfielder Eric Dier has told ESPN Brasil he wants the team to inspire future generations after they reached a first World Cup semifinal since 1990.

At least England had proved a goal threat, whereas Sweden's blunt attack failed to muster a shot on target until two minutes of the restart.

Harry Maguire opened the scoring for England - heading the ball home from an Ashley Young corner half an hour into the game.

Croatia vs. Russian Federation final score, recap
The game went to extra-time with Subasic staying on the pitch despite appearing to injure his hamstring late on in normal time. It was a dramatic end to a see-saw game that finished 1-1 after the regulation 90 minutes, and 2-2 after extra-time.

England manager Gareth Southgate said it was an "incredible feeling" to be through to the semi-finals.

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. Just before the half-time whistle blew, Raheem Sterling twice had the ball deep in Sweden's territory with little or no defence in front of him, but squandered both chances.

A fine cross from the left found Berg at the far post, with his powerful header forcing an outstanding one-handed stop out of Pickford. "We worked on that in practice".

"We knew set plays would be key", Maguire said. With the match coinciding on a weekend, a time specially opted by those tying a knot on a Saturday, many British fans took to Twitter to share how they tried to strike a balance - match and a wedding. Even though you're no longer in the World Cup, you've still got the sixth highest standard of living in the world.

"It can't come better than that, quarter final of the World Cup".
