England vs Sweden tactics

What will Gareth Southgate have to prepare for in England's quarter final against Sweden

Sweden captain Andreas Granqvist is happy to delay meeting his newborn daughter if it means extending his World Cup dream at England's expense.

A 2-0 win over Sweden in the quarterfinals on Saturday helped England secure their place in the semis where they will take on Croatia on Wednesday.

"I think we've developed very well here, we've showed a good level and had the right attitude, commitment and fight from the beginning", said Dier, a late substitute against Sweden. "We looked like we controlled the game".

The Three Lions ended their miserable penalty shoot-out record to progress to the quarter-finals, bringing this tight-knit squad even closer ahead of this huge occasion.

"The first 30 minutes we were under control until the corner and they scored". It was England's eighth set-piece goal of its 11 in Russian Federation, and the centre back's first in global soccer.

Drab and dispiriting, the opening half-hour sparked to life only when Harry Maguire outmuscled Emil Forsberg to power a bullet header past Robin Olsen for England's 10th goal of the tournament. At 22, Alli became the second-youngest scorer for England at a World Cup behind Michael Owen.

"We have no time really to dwell on the past". "And also that little ball that Jesse sent in for Dele, that was great".

"If anything, this is the second half of the tournament now".

Maguire epitomises the graft this squad have put in over the years and headed home his first global goal after 30 minutes, continuing his rapid ascent from fan in France at Euro 2016 to England hero in Russian Federation.

Steve McManaman and the FC crew agree Sweden did not ask many questions of England in the quarterfinals.

They have attempted 18 shots, one more than England.

Sweden have made 140 defensive clearances at Russian Federation 2018, more than any other team.

And Granqvist believes Sweden could have the edge in the last-eight game due to their team spirit.
