England players celebrate after Eric Dier scores the winning penalty against Colombia

With England a goal up, but needing to keep the ball better, Southgate could easily have hooked Dele at half-time and called for Ruben Loftus-Cheek or Eric Dier.

Maguire had his first England goal and how they needed that. "I believe that they are perfectly able to go all the way".

That was England's eighth set-piece goal at this World Cup, but, while it is seemingly lethal from dead balls, apart from Kane it is not blessed with too many other sharp shooters.

Centre-back Maguire connected with an Ashley Young corner to score his first global goal and reward England for their more adventurous approach in a largely cautious first half.

The two sides will enter into the last eight encounter fully aware that victory for either nation will take them a step closer towards World Cup glory.

The standard of England's crossing has particularly stood out this tournament, and Alli added the second goal by meeting a far-post cross from midfielder Jesse Lingard with a powerful header in the 59th.

The championship match, between the semifinals winners, will be played on Sunday, July 15. "We worked on that in practice".

"I want this to be an inspiration for future generations of English footballers".




At the start of his tenure in 2016, Southgate realised he had to deliver an important message to his players: Any success with England will be greater than anything achieved with their clubs.

"Personally, I don't think I played as well as I should have", he said.

Although Sweden rallied in the final 30 minutes, forcing two good saves from goalkeeper Jordan Pickford, England comfortably held on for its first shutout of the tournament.

It was from his headed assist that Harry Kane scored the last-gasp victor against Tunisia.

Virtually from kickoff, Sweden sent long passes forward to tall striker Ola Toivonen and looked for a flick-on.

Dele Alli has just become England's youngest World Cup goalscorer since Michael Owen but the Tottenham man admits his performance against Sweden left plenty of room for improvement.

One report suggests that Germany fans had bought tickets to the game anticipating that they would be the side getting through to the match. "You have to respect you are faced with a good keeper", Andersson said.
