0:47 Harry Maguire says it is a dream come true playing for England at the World Cup and is excited about taking

RB Leipzig midfielder Emil Forsberg grabbed the only goal of a tight encounter midway through the second half to send his country into the quarters for the first time since the 1994 side who finished third in the United States.

The Three Lions came through, as they had only done once before in their previous seven attempts, with Kane's opener setting the tone, Jordan Pickford saving at a crucial moment and Eric Dier slotting the victor.

"If England win I'll try to be gracious, I'll have a lot of unhappy students who all seem very confident they can beat us".

On a day where England cast aside their infamous penalty shootout hoodoo, Joachim Low confirmed he will remain Germany manager.

Vardy would have been seen as one of the most popular picks among the Three Lions' available options. It showed our mentality. You want to see what everyone is talking. "This will give us more belief than ever".

England face a tricky last 16 tie against Colombia on Tuesday, but Real Madrid legend Salgado has backed the striker to carry on his goalscoring run.

A World Cup title is the only thing missing from his collection of accolade. He is emotionally well and let's see how his recovery goes.

But with tempers flaring, England held their nerve. "Words can't describe how we feel", Max Wright, a 19-year-old Londoner, said.

"I don't know if I "didn't expect it" but we didn't rise to it, which was brilliant", he told ITV.

As for his own achievement - matching Gary Lineker's goal tally from 1986 and strengthening his grasp on the golden boot - Kane added: "Extremely proud".

The vandalism prompted a storm of criticism of English fans on Russian social networks, with users calling them poor guests at Russia's World Cup.

"I'm just focused on doing my best and the more I stay away from that and focus on my game and myself, the better I will be".

"But I ask you, can you cut out Belgium?"
