England sink Sweden to reach World Cup semifinal for first time since 1990

By QLSports

England buried 28 years worth of bitter World Cup memories when they beat Sweden 2-0 to qualify for the quadrennial event’s semifinals for the first time since 1990.

Harry Maguire and Dele Alli were on target as England comfortably overcame Sweden, much to the delight of English fans.

Leicester defender Maguire headed in the opening goal from a corner on 30 minutes, with Alli adding a second just before the hour.

Goalkeeper Jordan Pickford then produced a series of crucial saves in the final half-hour to seal England’s long-awaited spot in the last four.

It was just a second England victory over Sweden in nine competitive meetings, and sets up a clash with either hosts Russia or Croatia on July 11 in Moscow for a place in the final.
