Ibrahimovic and Beckham - teammates at four clubs during their playing days - made a wager on the World Cup quarterfinal between England and Sweden on Saturday.

They will now face either Croatia or Russian Federation, who play later on Saturday, and Andersson said the Three Lions can go the distance.

But experiencing the misery at Euro 2016 as players - or as a fan in the stadium like Maguire - helped a Harry Kane-led England advance relatively serenely to their first World Cup semifinal since 1990, according to Southgate. Even at Wimbledon, the home of lawn tennis, updates of England's goals were spread by fans watching or listening to the match on their cell phones.

Gareth Southgate's charges also overcame a mental hurdle that has seen England always falter in penalty shoot-outs in major competitions.

Yet the performances of Gareth Southgate's squad - the second youngest at the tournament - are being celebrated wildly back home.

"I know the fans here are enjoying it", Kane said.

Sweden were undone at two set pieces - goals from which are becoming quite a trend for England - but the Swedish manager lavished praise on England for being "the best team".

But he stuck to his guns and will now have an ever greater belief that trying to fit Dele, Sterling and Jesse Lingard into the same team can work.

"In the first half I wasn't as sharp or as good on the ball as I should have been, but you have those games and thankfully the team played so well".

After the game, Harry Maguire said: "It was my first worldwide goal on the biggest stage of them all".

Leicester defender Maguire headed in the opening goal from a corner on 30 minutes, with Alli adding a second just before the hour. "We worked on that in practice".

Sterling and Harry Kane have formed a far more effective partnership than has been recognised.

Both German and Spanish outlets focus their evaluation on England stopper Jordan Pickford who has starred between the sticks, which includes saving a penalty in the shootout against Colombia not to mention keeping a clean sheet versus Sweden.
