England's midfielder Dele Alli (C) heads the ball to score his team's second goal during the Russian Federation 2018 World Cup quarter-final football match between Sweden and England at the Samara Arena in Samara on July 7, 2018.

Harry Maguire scored his first worldwide goal followed by a header from midfielder Dele Alli.

It was 1990 when England last qualified for the semi-finals of a World Cup and that team, including the likes of Gary Lineker and Paul Gascoigne, returned home to national acclaim.

"You can't get better than that, winning a quarter final of the World Cup, it's taken us through", he said.

"We will enjoy tonight, I hope everybody at home enjoys tonight because as we know, it is not very often that it has happened".

Maguire has been one of England's best players as they've gone through the Group Stage with wins over Panama and Tunisia before a loss to Belgium, they then beat Colombia on penalties before the Sweden game.

Gareth Southgate - who has become a surprise fashion icon over his waistcoat - has allegedly been advised to prevent his team shaking hands for medical reasons. Somehow, two fans had gotten on top of a bus stop and a double-decker bus, and were leading the fans below in a clap (it's actually the Icelandic clap, but we'll ignore that).

"And in the end we already did what really matters: knocking Germany out!"

Lewis Besley, 23, said: "It's coming home!"

"The level of work has been great and their commitment to each other, you don't get through with just 11 players".

Kane would have been just 10 years old when England won the oval ball version of the World Cup in 2003.

The number one comes 22 years after the song was released in 1996 to accompany the European Championships, which were that year held in England. "But we have a way of playing and the boys' attitude has been incredible".

Now they are a main threat and a useful weapon and with no small thanks to Allan Russell, who is the man in charge of their set pieces.

"Dear Gareth, I can't believe how we're performing in this tournament, it's unbelievable!"
