England dominated Sweden (2-0) on Saturday in the quarter-final of the worlds. In Samara, the Three Lions sealed their victory with two helmet Shots by Harry Maguire and Dele Alli. They will face the winner of Russia-Croatia in the semifinals on Wednesday in Moscow (8pm).
While travel is a form of youth, this summer England finds that value does not wait for the number of years. And that Gareth Southgate has a hollow nose. England’s coach is lying about all the prognoses. With a young and inexperienced group, the English selection never ceases to surprise. Here she is in the semifinals of the World Cup for the first time since 1990, the third time in her history.
Two head shots. One free-hit. The other following a perfectly focused center on a placed Defense. Harry Kane didn’t score. But against Sweden, England remained true to her principles and made the ideal copy to continue her journey. Building on its strengths, the English collective has spoken. And was solid. Well-organized and diligent, the English smothered Swedes unable to produce game in their 4-4-2. And were able to strike when the opportunity presented itself.
Pickford answered present.
After 30 minutes closed and a rather tense start from the British, Gareth Southgate saw his men find the flaw in their favorite exercise: the stopped kicks. On the first corner of the English, Harry Maguire pushed Ashley Young’s Center to the bottom of the nets (0-1, 30′). Released, the British then put their feet on the ball more and more and finally made their strong time thanks to a leader of Dele Alli after a center of Jesse Lingard (0-2, 59′).
Meanwhile, England was once again able to see that she had a solid last rampart with Jordan Pickford. Everton’s doorkeeper has signed a few valuable parades (47th, 61st, 71st) to allow the eurozone’s best defense of qualifications to keep its inviolate cage. In the end, it was a successful match for the entire English team, which offered their country its first half in a World Cup in 28 years. This English youth is growing decidedly fast. Faster than I thought. Russia and Croatia have been notified.
