Gareth Southgate's side emphatically defeated Sweden by two goals to nil on a warm day in Samara, in a show of strength and game management which has rarely been seen by England sides at this level. And that's not to mention the fact that England have only won one of their last six tournament matches against them.

England's World Cup quarter-final showdown against Sweden is being touted as the biggest match in over a decade.

Gareth Southgate has identified hosts Russian Federation as the ideal opponents for England in next week's World Cup semi-final.

It was predictable in many ways, therefore, that the deadlock was broken from a set piece.

Andersson does not think about victory at World Cup
It will be something special that decides it - a mistake by someone, a free-kick, a corner, a penalty. Now there are a lot of emotions in the picture, because it's about quarterfinals.

The standard of England's crossing has particularly stood out this tournament, and another brilliant delivery led to the second goal. They have met 23 times with seven wins apiece while nine meetings have been drawn.

His blushes were saved by the linesman's flag as he fluffed the first chance, but moments later he ran through again, this time trying to round the keeper, only to be denied once more.

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.

Eric Dier put home the final penalty shot past David Ospina for England's first such World Cup victory, after a tradition of PK misery. History favors the Swedes, as they have progressed in three of their four matches at this stage in the past, whereas England have only done so twice from their eight attempts. It is fair to say that the Manchester City forward didn't enjoy any stellar performances against Tunisia, Panama, or, Colombia, and though he played better against the latter, Sterling certainly left a lot to be desired.
