The Three Lions of England are in dreamland as they defeated Sweden 2-0 on Saturday at Samara Arena to book a semi-final spot at the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

England broke the deadlock 30 minutes into the game as Young floats a corner into the middle where Maguire rises above the Sweden defence to head home his first international goal.

Chances were extremely limited for England, so taking advantage of set-pieces was crucial. Fortunately, Young’s delivery was superb and put the ball on a plate for Maguire.

58 minutes on, the Three Lions doubled their lead. Another sweeping cross was floated towards the far post where Alli has escaped his marker, heading home with ease.

A superb delivery from Lingard to put England in the driving seat.
