Harry Maguire and Dele Alli scored as England comfortably defeated Sweden 2-0 in Samara on Saturday to reach the World Cup semi-finals for the first time since 1990. Twitter errupted as England got a step closer to glory with celebratory tweets saying only one thing – It’s coming home!

Gareth Southgate started with the same team that delivered a win against Colombia in the Roundo of 16. Maguire and Alli headed in goals in each half of the quarterfinal to take their side to the next level. Goalkeeper Jordan Pickford also produced a number of brilliant saves to keep their sheet clean.
