England had booked their place in a World Cup semi-final and it has been so long coming – over a quarter of a century since the last occasion.
Last time it happened Bobby Robson was manager and Spitting Image’s puppet of the England manager was a senile worrier called Rubbisho. Turin, 1990, with the penalties, Gazza’s tears and all that, is written into England’s history. This time maybe there will be a happier ending. England could be forgiven for wondering what glories might lie ahead and, on this evidence, they should not hold any fears about meeting Russia or Croatia in Moscow on Wednesday.
England have now scored goals in total. The latest being the header from Harry Maguire to swing this game in England’s favour from a corner on the half-hour mark. Dele Alli soothed any lingering nerves with the second goal just before the hour thus crushing Sweden by 2-0.
