Sunday's papers are awash with reaction to events in Samara, here is what they made of the latest triumph from Gareth Southgate's team. Dele Alli and Harry Maguire scored the goals as England beat Sweden 2-0 to go through to wednesdays semi final with Croatia.
For the second goal, Jesse Lingard served up the ball to an unmarked Alli, who nodded in from close range.
Alongside Manchester City duo John Stones and Kyle Walker, he saw out England's first clean sheet of the tournament - a factor that will have pleased Southgate no end, after expressing his desire to see defensive improvements during Friday's pre-match news conference. "I have the greatest respect for them, and congratulations to England".
One player who came on as a substitute against England was defender Pontus Jansson, with the Leeds United ace was thrown on with five minutes to play as a direct option in attack. Humility has replaced the hubris that defined the celebrity-obsessed David Beckham-era where the furthest the team reached was the quarterfinal stage of any tournament. "We approach each game similarly, but Russian Federation in Moscow would be an incredible game to be involved in". I want to pay tribute to the team and the coach.
I asked him and he said he was OK, it did not affect him much. After England's entry into the semis, Beckham posted on Instagram his own version of "it's coming home".
Spain to appoint ex-Barcelona manager Luis Enrique to replace Julen Lopetegui
Rubiales fired Julen Lopetegui on the eve of the World Cup when the coach announced he had signed to take over at Real Madrid . Fernando Hierro was given the job on a caretaker basis, to at least initially see Spain through this summer's World Cup.
Fortunately for Becks, the Three Lions secured a comfortable 2-0 win in the quarter-final and will now play Croatia. "It will be a battle again but I trust us, I have belief in us".
Sterling's movement was very good, though, causing Sweden's slow defense problems throughout. It's a chance to clamber onto traffic lights, fling beer in the air and toast the success of the footballers in an outpouring of delirium not witnessed across England since the last century. Janne Andersson's side are supremely well drilled, but do not possess the pace or penetration to chase a game. "I wanted to say that already on the pitch, too, to our players".
For Sweden, who failed to qualify for the previous two World Cups, it was their best result since finishing third at the 1994 finals.
