Ibrahimovic & Beckham make freakish Twitter bet ahead of England-Sweden quarter-final

Ibrahimovic & Beckham make freakish Twitter bet ahead of England-Sweden quarter-final

England, the 1966 World Cup champions, last reached the semifinals in 1990.

Another headed goal from Dele Alli in the 59th minute sealed a 2-0 quarter-final win over Sweden at the Cosmos Arena on Saturday (July 7) as The Three Lions continued their improbable march towards World Cup glory.

Similarly, the Three Lions showed nerves of steel to overcome a stubborn Colombia side 4-3 on penalties after the South Americans equalised deep in stoppage time making it 1-1 in their last 16 tie.

"We played the way we said we would and we attacked the game".

"Personally, I don't think I performed as well as I should have but as a team it was solid".

Most England fans were very, very grateful for modern technology.

Raheem Sterling has faced some criticism over his struggles to score for England and just before halftime his doubters were handed ammunition when he was twice left alone to bear down on Sweden keeper Robin Olsen.

He said North Korea is increasing its production of nuclear materials at both secret and known centers. In both trips, the chief US diplomat met with the North's leader.

As England entered its second half against Sweden, an unmarked Dele Alli scored the second goal.

"It's a great achievement and we owed it to the fans, when you see how they have been backing us, both here and at home".

Although Sweden rallied in the final 30 minutes, forcing two good saves from goalkeeper Jordan Pickford, England comfortably held on for its first shutout of the tournament. "I spoke to the lads today, and none of us fancied going home".

11 - Dele's goal was England's 11th at Russian Federation 2018, equalling the country's record of most goals at a single World Cup set in 1966, the first and only edition when they went on to lift the trophy.

England have a long tradition of excellent goalkeepers but also a tradition of playing them beyond their sell-by-date, with fatal consequences. He said: "It was a mature performance in a high-pressure game. I can't speak highly enough of the whole squad", he said.

"We know there is a big game ahead with the semi-final but we are feeling good and we're confident". I kept a clean sheet because all the work I do in training is to showcase on match day.
