Maguire helped to keep those fires burning by opening the scoring in a quarter-final clash with Sweden, with his towering header getting England off to the flawless start in a 2-0 win .

"The dream goes on!"

England captain Harry Kane spoke of a "band of brothers" when he addressed the press on the eve of England's 2-0 win over Sweden in the Samara Arena on Saturday afternoon.

"We're buzzing. We know there is still a big game ahead, but we're feeling really good", he said.

England will play against Croatia in a World Cup semi-final on Wednesday 11 July.

"It's a great achievement for the team, we owed it to the fans back home who believed in us", said Alli. Sports analysts differently assess the teams ' chances of reaching the final of the world championship. So to be here now, leading this team out, I'm so proud.

The host nation, who beat Spain on penalties in the last 16, failed to convert two of their spot-kicks, leaving Barcelona's Ivan Rakitic with match point and he made no mistake, sealing a 4-3 win.


"Luck was against us", Cherchesov said.

"We just have to go again".

But Modric said they would be ready to face Southgate's men.

"We have enough time to rest and prepare well", said the Real Madrid midfielder.

He said it was very hard to predict what pupils would do with their lives, but the fact that Southgate "doesn't open his mouth until he's thought through what it is he wants to say" was something that he had clearly developed as a youngster. We are an emerging side, an evolving side: "a long way from flawless", said England coach Gareth Southgate.

The match kicks off at 3pm (BST), with home-side Russian Federation taking on Croatia later on today to find who will be going through to the quarter-finals.
