Hosts Russia or Croatia, who meet later on Sunday and are lower ranked than Southgate's side, are all that stands between England and a first World Cup final since they won the tournament on home soil in 1966.

Harry Kane says he and his England "brothers" are prepared to do whatever is required as they continue to chase their World Cup dream.

"We're one step closer to doing that but we still know that we've got games ahead of us".

"Yo David Beckham, if England wins, I buy you dinner anywhere you want in the world, but if Sweden wins, you buy me whatever I want from Ikea, ok?"

"It's a good football side and they don't give a lot of openings".

He told the BBC: "I'm really pleased for Dele (Alli)". We owed it for the fans at home, how they have all been supporting us. We've got to stay focused.

The killer blow, however, arrived 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 were faced with a good team, England were the best team today.

"We felt we could dominate the ball and control the play although we got a bit sloppy near the end of the second half".

Sweden set up on Saturday to make it hard, to throw their bodies at everything and try their best to keep a clean sheet.
