Zlatan and Beckham take bets on Sweden v England clash

Zlatan and Beckham take bets on Sweden v England clash

Croatia beat hosts Russian Federation 4-3 on penalties after the teams were level at 2-2 following extra time in their World Cup quarter-final on Saturday and will meet England in the semifinals.

Goals by Harry Maguire and Dele Alli either side of halftime put the 1966 world champions through at Samara Arena, while heroics from man-of-the-match Jordan Pickford in front of goal ensured they held on.

On Saturday, England defeated Sweden 2-0 to make it through to the World Cup Semifinal.

"We know in years to come they're going to be stronger".

This was England's most complete performance of Russian Federation 2018 in what was a highly-credible team effort.

"They have good plans, they have a clear way of playing - and it's bloody hard to play against".

According to the hotel management, they believe the alarm went off due to either someone smoking in their room or someone accidentally hitting a fire alarm switch.

Ashley Young 8 - Young's resurgent worldwide career reached its peak on Saturday as his corner set England on their way to a World Cup semi-final.

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

"We are aware of a small group of fans celebrating the match result in one of our stores", the statement said. "It's coming home", said Jones. We got goals from both areas we thought we would as we worked on those. "Since the beginning of the tournament, we've seen the big teams struggling against other teams that some considered to be weak". It was England's eighth set-piece goal of its 11 in Russian Federation, and the centre back's first in worldwide football.

When Alli got in behind some poor Swedish defense to meet a Jesse Lingard cross at the back post, England went two-up.

Victor Lindelof has been one of if not the standout player for Sweden at this World Cup.

England forward Raheem Sterling has yet to score at the World Cup from his unusual position as the support striker to Kane, and his finishing let him down against Sweden.

"He's the prototype of what a modern goalkeeper should be", Southgate said of Pickford, who only made his global debut last November.

England goalkeeper Jordan Pickford was notably called into action early in the second half when he saved Marcus Berg's header.
