England roar into World Cup semis

England will face Croatia in the semi-final in Moscow on Wednesday in what will be their first appearance in the last four of the World Cup since 1990 .

The surprising run in Russian Federation is being fuelled by goals from set pieces, and there was another against Sweden when Maguire headed in a corner from Ashley Young in the 30th minute.

Before England's second goal Sweden missed a golden opportunity to level right after the restart but Pickford, who was named man of the match, made an outstanding save, palming Marcus Berg's close-range header away.

Reflecting during his post-match press conference, Andersson told the assembled reporters (via Sky Sports) that he could envisage England going on to win the World Cup.

Mikael Lustig's absence was notable in the Swedish defence that, for the first time at this World Cup, had troubles in the air.

"To get through the two games this week we needed all of that".

Unfortunately, the quarterfinal against a talented, young England side that has a nation beginning to believe proved a bridge too far.

And Kavanaugh also worked on "The Starr Report", which outlined the grounds for President Bill Clinton's impeachment. The US President, according to the White House, has interviewed seven candidates from his master list of 25 judges.

The lively Sterling should have doubled the lead on the stroke of half-time when he brilliantly controlled Jordan Henderson's lofted pass, but he was unable to find a way past Robin Olsen and his follow-up was blocked by Andreas Granqvist. Long balls, set-pieces, crosses in the box.

They began solidly against England in a slow and sloppy start to the game that resembled a pre-season friendly at times, only to be outdone by a goal Sweden isn't used to conceding.

For Sweden, who failed to qualify for the previous two World Cups, it was their best result since finishing third at the 1994 Ffinals.

Sterling's movement was very good, though, causing Sweden's slow defense problems throughout. "Being both British and Swedish, we were on the edge of our seats during the game and we would like to say 'Grattis!' [congratulations in Swedish] to the England team for getting through to the semi-finals".

England have been backed to win the World Cup by Sweden head coach Janne Andersson.

"I don't think anything went wrong. We worked on that in training so credit to the staff".
