Dele, Maguire head England into first semi-final in 28 years

Dele, Maguire head England into first semi-final in 28 years

"In the first half I wasn't as sharp or as good on the ball as I should have been, but you have those games and thankfully the team played so well". It was Maguire's first global goal, and England's 10th of the tournament. "I believe that they are perfectly able to go all the way".

The crowd went wild after the goal, and Fortnite fans online celebrated yet another World Cup nod to the video game.

The likes of Germany and Spain have faltered, with the defending World Cup holders exiting from the Group Stage in truly remarkable scenes.

There was another against Sweden, with Maguire heading in a driven corner from Ashley Young in the 30th minute. They complement each other well and although Kane was not at his best against Sweden, and although attention focussed on Sterling wasting a clear first-half chance when through on goal, they are ideal playing together to cause problems for Croatia's centre-backs.

The importance of the keeper's contribution was swiftly underlined with England doubling their lead in the 59th minute as Jesse Lingard's teasing cross into the box was met by Alli unmarked at the far post to head powerfully past Olsen.

"We have two matches to play and we are very motivated".

"But that's something we'll work on and take to the next game".


So they were tough opponents and set out exactly what that meant at kick-off when they lined their players up on the left-hand side of the pitch and had no one down the right.

"I want this to be an inspiration for future generations of English footballers". I was at Crystal Palace when they weren't quite as good as they are now.

"Personally, I don't think I played as well as I should have", he said.

It was from his headed assist that Harry Kane scored the last-gasp victor against Tunisia.

Both German and Spanish outlets focus their evaluation on England stopper Jordan Pickford who has starred between the sticks, which includes saving a penalty in the shootout against Colombia not to mention keeping a clean sheet versus Sweden. Sterling got hold of the loose ball but his shot was deflected over.

It's been a long time between drinks for England football fans.

England and Sweden faced off in the World Cup on Saturday morning, and a familiar dance from Fortnite just so happened to make an appearance in the game.
