England reached its first World Cup semifinal since 1990, comfortably beating Sweden 2-0 with a commanding performance in Samara.

Harry Maguire's first-half header set the Three Lions on their way to victory, before Dele Alli's header in the second period ended the match as a contest.

In truth, it was a comfortable victory and England goalkeeper Jordan Pickford was more than a match for the three chances Sweden created.


England now wait to find out which of Croatia or host Russia will be its semifinal opponent.
