Zlatan Ibrahimovic has posted a class tweet after Sweden 0-2 England

"Yes, I did watch it on my phone at my best mate's wedding and shout "IT'S COMING HOME" during the vows".

That was England's eighth set-piece goal at this World Cup, but, while it is seemingly lethal from dead balls, apart from Kane it is not blessed with too many other sharp shooters.

Southgate withdrew Henderson for Eric Dier in the closing stages and will have a full squad to choose from in the semi-final, injuries permitting.

Croatia ended Russia's unlikely World Cup dream when they won 4-3 on penalties to eliminate the gallant hosts after a dramatic quarter-final ended 2-2 after extra time.

Southgate credited his team's success on their willingness to come together to form a cohesive unit.

Can they do it again by beating the Swedes on Saturday?

"We have to be here another week, and it's up to us now which games we play in".

Prior to the match, manager Gareth Southgate told BBC: "We're improving and want to make history".

The finer details of the game concerned are well documented by now, but Ibrahimovic looks to be holding up his side.

"We are in the World Cup semifinals. It's another massive game in the semi and one that we will have belief in". The victor battles France or Belgium in the 2018 World Cup final on July 15 in Moscow.

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.

After failing to qualify for United States of America 94, Argentina were the roadblock in the second round at France 98, before 10-man Brazil overturned a 1-0 deficit to eliminate England in the quarterfinals in 2002. What they did will be remembered forever.

In Russia, though, the draw has opened up for England, as it did with knockout ties against Belgium and Cameroon in 1990.

And what a time to score it, coming on the back of half an hour of largely ponderous England play against a side content to sit in and relinquish possession.

Sweden's players suffered a rude awakening ahead of their World Cup quarter-final clash with England when the fire alarm went off at their hotel in Samara on Saturday morning, leading it to be evacuated.

"I'm not sure what you'd call someone like that", Kane said. I remember saying to him before the next game "okay, how about we try to be as good as we might be" because I think he's a super talented player.

Look, we get it England. "We've done great up until now, but we have another step to overcome".
