Croatia await the Three Lions for Wednesday's semi-final at Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium, after beating hosts Russian Federation 4-3 in a penalty shootout.

England have reached the Fifa World Cup semifinals for the first time in 28 years with a 2-0 victory over Sweden at Russian Federation 2018.

You still have two games to go, England fans. "Being both British and Swedish, we were on the edge of our seats during the game and we would like to say 'Grattis!' [congratulations in Swedish] to the England team for getting through to the semi-finals".

The former Manchester United star wrote on social media: "If England win I buy you dinner wherever you want in the world, but if Sweden wins you buy me whatever I want from Ikea, okay?"

Leicester defender Maguire headed in the opening goal from a corner on 30 minutes, with Alli adding a second just before the hour.

Thus the British lost a chance to get ahead in the overall standings of the German Sebastian Vettel from Ferrari, continuing to keep up with him on one point.

Before England's second goal Sweden missed a golden opportunity to level right after the restart but Pickford, who was named man of the match, made an outstanding save, palming Marcus Berg's close-range header away. It was England's eighth set-piece goal of its 11 in Russian Federation, and the centre back's first in global football.

Zlatan, 36 - retired from worldwide football but now playing for LA Galaxy - made a bet with Becks before Sweden played England in the World Cup yesterday.

England held the lead through the halftime whistle before Dele Alli picked up some insurance. "Whoever we play, we will be ready to go again". "And also that little ball that Jesse sent in for Dele, that was great". With the match coinciding on a weekend, a time specially opted by those tying a knot on a Saturday, many British fans took to Twitter to share how they tried to strike a balance - match and a wedding. He is best at making those runs for the goal and he can finish.

At least England had proved a goal threat, whereas Sweden's blunt attack failed to muster a shot on target until two minutes of the restart.

They lacked the resilience displayed in the last-16 defeat of Switzerland, but Andersson said the outcome was through England's excellence more than anything.
