England outclass Sweden; enter World Cup semifinals

England grabbed rather easy victory against Sweden (2-0) in the World Cup 2018 at Samara in Russia on Saturday and entered semifinals.

Harry Maguire and Dele Alli scored for England. England reached the World Cup semi-finals for the first time since 1990.

Leicester defender Maguire found lead through a header from a corner in the 30th minutes, with Alli adding a second just before the hour.

Goalkeeper Jordan Pickford then produced a series of crucial saves in the final half-hour to seal England's long-awaited spot in the last four.

It was just a second England victory over Sweden in nine competitive meetings, and sets up a clash with either hosts Russia or Croatia on July 11 in Moscow for a place in the final.
