Hurst was part of the team that claimed England's only World Cup victory to date on home soil in that famous summer of 1966, scoring a hat-trick in a 4-2 win against West Germany.
"We looked composed", England captain Harry Kane said after the Saturday match (NZT Sunday). I remember saying to him before the next game "okay, how about we try to be as good as we might be" because I think he's a super talented player.
Harry Maguire and Dele Alli scored with headers in a 2-0 win over Sweden, earning England a match against either Croatia or host nation Russian Federation for a place in the final.
It's only the third time England have reached the last four and their first since Italia 90 they have made the semis.
England's deep run also is a surprise. Not even the England side from the early 21st century, containing stars like Beckham, Steven Gerrard and a young Wayne Rooney, ever got this far at a major tournament.
11 - Dele's goal was England's 11th at Russian Federation 2018, equalling the country's record of most goals at a single World Cup set in 1966, the first and only edition when they went on to lift the trophy. 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.
Yet the performances of manager Gareth Southgate's squad - the second youngest at the tournament - are being celebrated wildly back home.
Most England fans were very, very grateful for modern technology.
Hsieh Su-Wei beats No. 1 Simona Halep at Wimbledon Halep is the first No. 1 seed to fail to reach the round of 16 at Wimbledon since Serena Williams in 2014. The Belgian, ranked number 47 in the world, knocked out defending champion Garbine Muguruza in round two.
"I know the fans here are enjoying it", Kane said.
It was just a second England victory over Sweden in nine competitive meetings, and sets up a clash with either hosts Russian Federation or Croatia on July 11 in Moscow for a place in the final. 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. It was England's eighth set-piece goal of its 11 in Russian Federation, and the centre back's first in worldwide football.
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.
"We knew set plays would be key", Maguire said.
"He puts in a shift like not many others on the park in terms of running in behind, turning and facing defenders and making them go on the backfoot".
England had not kept a clean sheet in their four previous matches and had Pickford to thank for ensuring they did not concede this time.
"Up until that corner, I felt that we had everything under control", Sweden coach Janne Andersson said. The first goal was scored by Harry Maguire, who hit a bullet header from a corner.
Pickford had relatively little to do in a quiet first half, but the England goalkeeper produced a vital stop to claw away a Marcus Berg header minutes after the restart. He is likely to retain his starting place for the semifinals.
