Harry Maguire scored the opening goal for the English side during the 30th minute in Samara, Russia. Just under a half hour of play later, Dele Alli gave England its second goal.
Sweden has yet to win a World Cup match when they are trailing at halftime, only drawing or losing 11 of such games.

“All the Swedish players, they know what to expect, what they’ll get from England,” Henriksson said.
