Gareth Southgate hails Harry Maguire’s World Cup impact

England boss Gareth Southgate insists that he has been pleased with the performances of Dele Alli at the 2018 World Cup.

There may be less pressure on England than at previous tournaments, but former England manager Sven-Goran Eriksson says they'd still hate to lose their World Cup quarter-final against his native Sweden on Saturday. The victory left revelers in Montreal's Burgundy Lion feeling pretty good - though the liquid refreshments may have helped.

Most fans though will be crowding around the big screens again on Wednesday, perhaps singing - and maybe even believing -the 1996 anthem by the Lightning Seeds pop band, "Football's Coming Home".

The Duke of Cambridge, who is president of the Football Association, sent his own message of congratulations shortly after the Three Lions' 2-0 win.

"We will enjoy tonight, I hope everybody at home enjoys tonight because as we know, it is not very often that it has happened", he said.

And Walker was the latest to join the meme, posting after England's 2-0 win over Sweden.

"They're well-organised and tough to break down but our spirit was as good as them and our quality was a little better". I think that they aren't ready to make history at the moment. 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.

England captain Harry Kane is the competition's leading scorer on six goals, a tally only Brazilian legend Ronaldo has bettered since 1974.

"We're buzzing. It's probably not sunk in", Kane said. "Controlled the game. Fantastic", Tim Banks said. They are really important messages for us. As witnessed by the tragic downfall of the Brazilian squad at this year's World Cup, sometimes the weight of expectation is impossible to shake, no more than in England, the country that gave the world soccer.

After the Saturday's game Ibrahimovic went to Twitter: "Every player should get a golden ball in Sweden". We've still got a long way to go.
