England fans across south London celebrate World Cup win over Sweden

Speaking after the game to the BBC, Southgate acknowledged that his side had expected a tough game, before hailing the resilience shown by his players to pull through.

England manager Gareth Southgate was understandably delighted after his side sealed their place in a World Cup semi-final for the first time since 1990.

He said: "Everyone is together with England and there is more positivity about them than in previous tournaments".

Speaking about his Rangers team's win against Bury, Gerrard was upbeat and said both he and the squad were eagerly looking forward to the start of Europa League play and the Premiership campaign. The victory was also beneficial to ex-England captain David Beckham, who won himself dinner thanks to a friendly wager with Swedish soccer legend Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Only nine of England's World Cup squad were alive to see this happen, while Croatian striker Andrej Kramaric was born six days before the declaration.

"We are a team that are still improving, we know where we are and we are having success because everybody is working hard on the field", the England manager said. I am so pleased that they can see (that).

"I wanted to try and gather all the players out on the pitch. We are better than this England". With lyrics like, "England's gonna throw it away, gonna blow it away", and "thirty years of hurt", the song was meant to lovingly poke fun at the bittersweet existence of British soccer fans, according to the Independent.

"We think they're a very strong team", Southgate said.

In a tweet, London Ambulance Service said: "We're delighted with the result, but this has put a big dampener on the celebrations for us". We want to keep seeing those videos.

"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".

"If we were to be picky, a legitimate argument could be made that England will need to play with more finesse if they are to harbour serious ambitions of winning this competition".

Peter John-Baptiste, 48, from Harrow, north west London, was at Italia 90 that last time England made a semi-final.
