England fans 'dare to dream' after win over Sweden

Adjudged Man of the Match for his wonderful saves against Sweden, who England beat 2-0 in the quarter finals on Saturday, the England goalie is intent on raising the bar.

It is worth noting that Jordan Pickford had not made a competitive appearance for England until he lined out against Tunisia in the World Cup.

England's World Cup victory over Sweden on July 7th led to a record-breaking 3.8 million live viewers streaming the event on iPlayer and the BBC Sport website - the BBC's highest online-viewed live programme in its history.

Asked why she was determined to screen the match during her special day, she said: "Because I can't function without watching the game".

Dele Alli's second half header then sent fans into dream land as England reached a World Cup semi final for the first time since 1990. One incident involving a supporter sickeningly issuing a Nazi salute during the group stage at a Volgograd pub aside, organizers and Russian police have spoken positively of the group. Hart, capped 75 times by England, played cricket for his local club as a youngster before focusing on his football career at Shrewsbury Town.

According to one England fan staying near the hotel, the players were not happy with the situation. "For us, it's all about the experience".

"We've seen the videos from back home and it seems like the country is really coming together so we're happy to have that influence".

The 24-year-old had six loan spells - at non-league Darlington and Alfreton Town as well as Burton, Carlisle, Bradford and Preston - before establishing himself at Sunderland and eventually moving to Everton for £30m.

Of course, there were some fans who took things a bit too far. I just thought it was questionable but that was about it.
