England's World Cup quarter-final against Sweden could be played in front of as many as 10,000 empty seats in Samara.

Goals from Harry Maguire and Dele Alli either side of the break saw the Three Lions reach the final four of the tournament for the first time since 1990 and it appears football might actually be coming home. Not even the England side containing stars like Beckham, Steven Gerrard and a young Wayne Rooney ever got this far at a major tournament.

Peter Shilton was nearly 41 in the 1990 World Cup and did not look as if he would save a German penalty in the shootout defeat if they had been taking them until midnight. Sweden may be limited, effectively a team of spoilers with players from Hull City, Krasnador and Al Ain in the United Arab Emirates but they beat France and finished above Holland in qualifying, they defeated Italy in the play-off and they knocked out Germany in the group stages.

After England's midfielder Dele Alli scored the team's second goal against Sweden, doubling their score in England's quarterfinal match, he celebrated by busting the following move from the popular survival video game.

Mikael Lustig's absence was notable in the Swedish defence that, for the first time at this World Cup, had troubles in the air. "We worked on that in practice".

Neymar’s playacting cost 14 minutes of match time
According to Swiss broadcaster RTS, Neymar's overacting on the ground has resulted in loss of nearly 14 minutes of play time. Neymar has been a subject of criticisms lately following his in-game antics against Switzerland and Mexico.

A chant of "On our way, on our way, to Moscow, on our way" came from England fans in one corner of the Samara Arena.

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.

Forward Raheem Sterling has faced some criticism over his struggles to score for England and just before halftime his doubters were handed ammunition when he was twice left alone to bear down on Sweden keeper Robin Olsen.

"Yes I definitely believe England are good enough to win the World Cup". "We looked like we controlled the game". It was England's eighth set-piece goal of its 11 in Russian Federation, and the center back's first in worldwide soccer. I want to pay tribute to the team and the coach. I'm not sure he's always believed that. "We then created chances at the start of the second half and if we had scored it would have revived the game".
