They are looking to reach the last four of the World Cup for the first time since 1990, while Sweden are hoping to advance to a first semi-final appearance in 24 years.

Dele Alli ghosts in at the back post to head past Robin Olsen and England are on the brink of the WorldCup semi-finals - they lead Sweden 2-0.

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.

England's defender Harry Maguire (L) and England's defender John Stones celebrate their victory at the end of the Russian Federation 2018 World Cup quarter-final football match between Sweden and England.

Southgate stuck with the same team that overcame Colombia on penalties in the last 16, while Sebastian Larsson returned for Sweden after missing the 1-0 win over Switzerland through suspension.

England forward Raheem Sterling has yet to score at the World Cup from his unusual position as the support striker to Harry Kane, and his finishing let him down against Sweden.

England's defender Harry Maguire (R) celebrates past England's defender John Stones after scoring the opener during the Russian Federation 2018 World Cup quarter-final football match between Sweden and England at the Samara Arena in Samara on July 7, 2018.

The winning goal from Maguire of Leicester City arrived just on 30 minutes, and it was another textbook set piece for England.

As you can see in the following images, a number of England fans were hanging around the lobby as footage emerged online and many on social media have made their presumptions.

England has advanced further than was widely expected.

Maguire then lashed over after a scene of panic in the Sweden area as England chased a third goal, although they were twice indebted to Pickford for preserving their two-goal lead.

Sweden reacted well and should have halved the deficit but for Pickford's superb save, diving low to his right to keep out Viktor Claesson's effort, and the Everton man was again at his best moments later to tip over Berg's shot on the turn.
