England fans 'dare to dream' after win over Sweden

Jesse Lingard and Ruben Loftus Cheek in England U21 action

Gareth Southgate's team will play Sweden this afternoon, with England as the 1/1 favourites to win.

"The dream goes on!"

Man-of-the-match Jordan Pickford made three outstanding saves to keep Sweden at bay, further burnishing a reputation that has grown throughout the tournament.

English football fans put on quite a frenzy in the store selling furniture is IKEA. "It's an unbelievable feeling to be going to a semi-final at a World Cup".

It's fantastic because I was one of those kids growing up who wanted to play for England.

"We're buzzing. We know there is still a big game ahead, but we're feeling really good", he said.

Even if Southgate's team reach the final, William will not attend the match because of Britain's diplomatic boycott of the World Cup in Russian Federation over a nerve agent attack in England this year. And Mother Russia's penalty shootout anguish. So to be here now, leading this team out, I'm so proud.

Either hosts Russian Federation or Croatia are all that stands between England and a first World Cup final since they won the tournament on home soil in 1966.

The march was re-scheduled to avoid clashing with the England v Sweden match.

Russian Federation coach Stanislav Cherchesov lamented that fortune had not smiled on his side.

Just before the hour Trippier was again the provider with the cross that saw Dele Ali double England's lead.

Russia Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev called the team's performance "magnificent", saying the tournament would change the face of football in the host nation.

Harry Kane says England are determined to "finish the job" in Russian Federation and hopes their unexpected tilt at World Cup glory will inspire the next generation.

Mr Parry, who is now the assistant priest of Worth Parish, in West Sussex, said the young Southgate "liked to analyse things he was dealing with before he spoke about them".

He said it was very hard to predict what pupils would do with their lives, but the fact that Southgate "doesn't open his mouth until he's thought through what it is he wants to say" was something that he had clearly developed as a youngster. Every match at this World Cup is like that.

Prying him away from the Foxes could see us end up spending a huge amount of cash, especially if England progress further in the World Cup.

The match kicks off at 3pm (BST), with home-side Russian Federation taking on Croatia later on today to find who will be going through to the quarter-finals.
