England overpowers Sweden in World Cup quarter-final

0:51 min

England dashed Sweden's World Cup dreams on Saturday, beating them 2-0 in Samara, Russia.

The loss means Sweden is out of the World Cup while the English will go on to face the winner of the match between Russia and Croatia. 

Sweden fell behind in the 30th minute when England's Harry Maguire scored from a corner kick. Just under 30 minutes of playtime later, Dele Alli made the team's second goal.

The Swedes had several chances but even their best opportunities failed to find the back of the net.
