England dream of World Cup glory as Russian fans thank team

Gareth Southgate World Cup 2018

Ibrahimovic believes Sweden can reach the semifinal at Russia 2018

The 25-year-old headed home the opening goal against Sweden in England's quarter-final, and has been a solid figure at the back for the Three Lions in Russian Federation.

Gareth Southgate's side have been cut into 11/4 from 10/3 ahead of their semi-final appearance, which will be against either Russian Federation or Croatia. I think Gareth Southgate's letting the team see one or two clips of the fans and that's good because it wasn't until we'd got home the enormity of what we've achieved.

Their valiant efforts in Russian Federation have seen thousands hit the pubs and clubs to support their boys from back home, with venues in Brighton regularly filling up when the Three Lions have played.

"If we were to be picky, a legitimate argument could be made that England will need to play with more finesse if they are to harbour serious ambitions of winning this competition".

"We even had the opportunity after the break to draw level, but we failed to do so. It will be a battle again but I trust us, I have belief in us".

Southgate went on to admit that Wednesday's semi-final in Moscow will be a special occasion, but his team would first celebrate the special feeling that England's achievements had so far created.

After England won a corner, Maguire got his head on a attractive ball from Ashley Young to give the Three Lions the lead just 30 minutes into the match. 'But, you know, we are progressing really well.

The Mail On Sunday online edition said: "The Dream Goes On!". Yes, they conceded a goal and lost it a bit for 10 minutes, but got it back and were in control.

"We do not want to stop, we will try to play our best game". That we have got players with super technique.

'That for me is quite symbolic and why I joined the England FA five years ago because I believed that was possible'. He vowed to take ex-England skipper Beckham out for a meal at any restaurant in the world if he found himself on the losing side.

"It was my first global goal on the biggest stage of them all", Maguire said. "I thought the mentality and the spirit they showed in the last game (against Colombia) was fantastic".
