A young, unfancied England team reached the semi-final of the World Cup, with a two-nil victory that sent a nation into a collective frenzy. Alli went past Jimmy Greaves, who was 22 years and 103 days old when he scored at the 1962 World Cup. They are really important messages for us. He is now a regular in the England side and has impressed many in the World Cup so far with his performances with his passing from the back being particularly noted.

The Swedish ambassador to the United Kingdom has given a masterclass in how to be a gracious loser after he was praised for his classy response to England beating his team in the quarter final of the World Cup.

"We had good controlled possession, but we do want to create more clear chances and I think we can create more clear-cut chances", said Southgate as seen on the Mirror. "We're hugely ambitious and want to do that, but we know there's nothing in our mind other than tomorrow's game".

"We felt like we could dominate the ball in this game. He completed what we'd hoped he would today but slightly separate to the team", Southgate said. "That's something we've got to think about tactically", he added. "I've been involved in matches versus Sweden many times and the team always has a very strong identity with better players than people sometimes give them credit for".

Police Chief Catrina Thompson warned that her officers "will not be used as pawns to further someone's dislike for anyone". Then Bloom, "not wanting a confrontation to escalate", called police to resolve the situation, according to the statement.

"What I think about England national team is more or less what I think about France: a group of young players with talent".

England have a future star in Harry Maguire, and benefitted from a Jordan Pickford masterclass, but it is too early for the "Football's coming home!" chants, warns RT's Peter Schmeichel.

The Tottenham striker is also level with Gary Lineker's England record from the 1986 World Cup as he leads the race for the Golden Boot.

"After past year of course there will be more pressure and more eyes on us, but I'm confident come kick-off that they will be ready to go".
