Further goals may have been needed had goalkeeper Jordan Pickford not been on hand with a host of crucial saves to quash Sweden's second-half rally.

"It's nice within football to affect some things and the players have that opportunity as well because they have a voice and they have influence on young people, especially the young people from the areas they came from".

"Without the commitment of a couple of wives who have let their husbands come back having given birth - I hope they all feel really part of this now because we don't do that without everybody's support". Alli went past Jimmy Greaves, who was 22 years and 103 days old when he scored at the 1962 World Cup.

OddsMonkey spokesman Peter Watton said: "The nation is again getting behind England and this song is again the anthem football fans have adopted, so it would not be a huge shock to see it at number one". They are spoilt kids who earn a lot of money. A very solid team. I was at Crystal Palace when they weren't quite as good as they are now.

Empoli fan Francesco is a little more pessimistic about England's chances, but has still admired their work so far.

England unchanged to face Sweden in quarter-final
The winning goal from Maguire of Leicester City arrived just on 30 minutes, and it was another textbook set piece for England . England has advanced further than was widely expected.

The Swedish ambassador to the United Kingdom has given a masterclass in how to be a gracious loser after he was praised for his classy response to England beating his team in the quarter final of the World Cup. I think that they aren't ready to make history at the moment.

"This was a friendly match against Bury; yes there was 40,000 here so there was a slight bit of pressure, especially for the new players because it's the first time they will be judged".

One of the best qualified to speak about England's chances is Andrea, founder of Italian site "Il Calcio Inglese" for aficionados of the English game on the peninsula.

In the build up to the game, social media was flooded with memes of Maguire talking to his girlfriend following England's win over Colombia with captions differing based on his relaxed stance. "I thought the mentality and the spirit they showed in the last game [against Colombia] was fantastic".

The Tottenham striker is also level with Gary Lineker's England record from the 1986 World Cup as he leads the race for the Golden Boot. They looked exhausted, like they were happy with the quarter-finals and wanted to go home.
