England fans embrace Southgate's 'accessible' team

Berg hit 16 shots in five games, but failed to find the net and while he said he has no complaints about losing to England in the quarter-finals on Saturday night, he believes a place in the last-four was not out of Sweden reach. So famous were his crosses that a movie, "Bend It Like Beckham", was spun off it in 2002.

The BBC said 19.9 million saw the match on BBC One while 3.9 million used iPlayer.

"I knew they were going to win, I have faith".

They will face Croatia, who had to endure a strength-sapping penalty shootout for the second consecutive match, in front of 80,000 people in Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium on Wednesday.

The Three Lions have shocked the world by reaching the semi-finals in impressive fashion.

"We all are. Not just because of the England win but how we won".

Presenter Gary Lineker became emotional after watching a clip of the late Sir Bobby Robson reflecting on England's 1990 World Cup heartache against Germany. Southgate also recruited Allan Russell, the team's attack coach, who has keenly studied set-play moves in American Football and the National Basketball Association.

Alli and Gareth Southgate's Three Lions take on Sweden in their World Cup quarter final final on Saturday afternoon and former England under-21 worldwide Baker says Alli's progression has come as no shock whatsoever.

"This squad doesn't have those type of players, they are all of a similar level". That we have got players with super technique.

Yes, Jordan Pickford. Vital and excellent save. The record audience watched as Iceland left with a draw against Argentina, one of the favorites of the World Cup.

Harry Kane was not even born when England last reached the World Cup semifinals 28 years ago, but the Tottenham striker - who has met 1966 final hat-trick hero Geoff Hurst - fully appreciates the weight of history he and his teammates are making in Russian Federation. "It is noticeable how relatively few England flags there are in London, especially the central areas, compared with most of the rest of the country".
