Sweden stand in the way of Englands WC charge

After the anguish, tension and ultimately wild joy of England's last 16 win over Colombia, this was as close to a routine win as is possible in the last eight of the World Cup.

British Airways is doing a little proactive wishful thinking with its latest social media post, hoping for an England win in its quarter final World Cup match with Sweden.

The University of Leeds Physics and Astronomy research student said: "We're a small country and it was nice to get as far as we did".

A tight first quarter quietened the mood but the place erupted in the 30th minute when Harry Maguire headed in England's opening goal with beer flying everywhere, gallons raining down as people roared in celebration.

"I can't speak highly [enough], it's the most mature, calmest England display that I've seen in a long, long time".

After Harry Maguire powered England into the lead, supporters were bouncing in the stands as Baddiel and Skinner and the Lightning Seeds' Three Lions (Football's Coming Home) pounded over the stadium sound system.

In other words, the Three Lions were the furthest thing from World Cup semifinalists; They were the furthest thing from, well, likeable.

In contrast to so many failures in major tournaments gone by, England have dominated possession in every match bar their final group game against Belgium when Southgate named a much-changed side.

Roy, 54, from Hereford, said: "I'm very nervous, they are very well structured as a side and I am very concerned about whether we can break them down".

"But at the end of the day I still think we're good enough".

Former midfielder Hakan Mild has been the most bolshie and claimed England do not have the determination required to triumph as they are "spoilt children who earn a lot of money" - comments that appear to have got under Southgate's skin.

"We'd like to bring it home", said England defender John Stones on Thursday.

"We were always going to win the game but now we're there it's just relief, isn't it?"

"Whether that takes it out of them for the final or whether it actually gives them that greatest test going into it, they're more ready for it, I don't know".

"I suppose deep down I've always held those beliefs and held my own values", Southgate said.

"All I know is that the [England] managers who got to semi-finals before I hugely respect and it's an incredible feeling to be involved in this". "So you've got to have a racehorse trainer's eye at times to really try and sort that out", he said.
