England head coach Gareth Southgate said on Saturday that his side defeated Sweden 2-0 to reach the World Cup semi-finals thanks to his players and coaching staff being united.
England beat Sweden 2-0 in the World Cup quarter-finals in Samara on Saturday. The 1966 champions will now face hosts Russia or Croatia in the semi-finals.
"It's an incredible privilege to be the England manager, to be able to take the team so far... We spoke to the players today, none of us fancied going home, we've gotta be here for another week, so it's up to us now which games we're playing. I'm so proud of what all of the players and all the staff has done, we've got to this point because the collective has been so strong," Southgate told journalists.
