A new look young and determined England football team has stunned many in this edition of the FIFA World Cup in Russia 2018. When they left England, not many had given Harry Kane’s side to go far.
In a tournament where favoured teams like defending champions Germany, Argentina, Portugal, Spain, Uruguay, Brazil have crashed out , England has pulled off a fine show and looks like going all the way.
The Lions once again came out with a purposeful and aggressive intent against Sweden in the quarter- finals and clinched a convincing 2-0 win. To the huge delight of English fans. Headers by Harry Maguire and Dele Alli ensured England reach their first semi- final in World Cup since 1990.
In 1990 England lost in penalties to then eventual winners West Germany. They now face Croatia for place in the finals.
