Dele Alli goal: England ace heads Three Lions into World Cup semi-final – WATCH | Football | Sport

England faced Sweden in the quarter-finals with a spot in the last four up for grabs.

Gareth Southgate’s men dominated throughout and it was Harry Maguire who headed England in front in the first half.

While Sweden pushed for an equaliser, Jesse Lingard played in a cracking cross to an unmarked Alli who duly scored England’s second with another emphatic header.

The 2-0 win means England are in the last four of the World Cup for the first time since 1990.

England will face either Russia or Croatia for a spot in the final.

And Tottenham star Alli was delighted with his goal for England.

“It’s a great achievement for the team and we owe it to the fans,” Alli said at full-time.

“They have been believing in us. It was a great performance from the team.

“It’s always nice to score especially in occasions like this.

“I don’t think it was my best performance but to get a goal is unbelievable and it’s an amazing feeling to get to the semi-final.

“It was a real graft out there but it was important we had belief in the gameplan and to dominate possession.

“It was important we kept moving the ball quickly and waited for the opportunity.

“Jordan Pickford proved in the last game how big he is for this team and we will all be celebrating together.”
