Man Utd star Jesse Lingard scored in England's 6-1 win over Panama
Harry Kane admitted the achievement of reaching the World Cup semi-final "probably has not sunk in yet" as the England captain praised the "fantastic" performance of his team against Sweden.
Viktor Claesson's hopeful effort from distance was the best rudimentary Sweden managed in a scrappy opening, but the Three Lions were doing little better as Alli overhit a through ball after snatching possession off over-confident Emil Krafth.
After England's midfielder Dele Alli scored the team's second goal against Sweden, doubling their score in England's quarterfinal match, he celebrated by busting the following move from the popular survival video game. "I believe they are perfectly capable of going all the way". "We approach each game similarly, but Russian Federation in Moscow would be an incredible game to be involved in".
Walker and Stones enjoyed a solid afternoon, as Sweden were limited to few clear chances with England shielding a two-goal advantage. 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.
They began solidly against England in a slow and sloppy start to the game that resembled a pre-season friendly at times, only to be outdone by a goal Sweden isn't used to conceding. Sterling in particular proved a bright spark with his movement and pressing, and was unfortunate not to open his account - thwarted by goalkeeper Robin Olsen.
Sterling's movement was very good, though, causing Sweden's slow defense problems throughout.
Virtually from kickoff, Sweden sent long passes forward to tall striker Ola Toivonen and looked for a flick-on. It was England's most convincing performance of the group stage when it came to shape and possession, with the team also taking its chances, shooting on frame twice and scoring both of them.
"I wasn't born the last timeEngland reached a World Cup semi-final", said Pickford. "I felt that we had the match in our hands".
