Jordan Pickford of England reacts during the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia group G match between England and Belgium at Kaliningrad Stadium

Paul Cook admits he's been delighted to see the "pride" being restored in the England jersey at the World Cup.

Eric Dier has paid tribute to England's fans at home and in Russian Federation, as the Three Lions gear up for Saturday's World Cup quarter final with Sweden.

The idea of leaving out Trippier, who has been one of England's most reliable players in Russian Federation, resulted in the kind of reaction you'd expect.

Southgate (47) has built on that impressive work in Russian Federation where he has guided England to a quarter-final tie against Sweden in Samara tomorrow. Once he came on, I felt we lost the initiative a little bit.

England's chances against Sweden could be made all the tougher by injuries, with Southgate joking the dressing room was "like a scene from M*A*S*H*". "I think there is exaggeration on theatre by the players", Mourinho told Russia Today.

The report claimed England's provisional list of penalty takes included Henderson, Harry Kane, Ashley Young, Kieran Trippier, Jamie Vardy and Jesse Lingard.

In a recent interview with the BBC, the team's captain, Harry Kane, revealed that him and the team are enjoying playing "more Fortnite than ever" while at the competition, and we believe the results speak for themselves! "I'm not going to get in the first-team".

"It'll be the most hard game they'll have played so far, they can bet on that".

Jordan Pickford produced a marvellous save to tip over Mateus Uribe's thunderous 30-yard volley with time running out in 90 minutes and then he stopped Carlos Bacca's penalty to help England to a 4-3 penalty shoot-out win.

"But, as a team, the way they work together, they are one of the best". It was not attractive football against us, but lovely football does not always win.

England and Sweden have twice met at the World Cup with both encounters in 2002 and 2006 ending in stalemates.

Manchester United boss admitted afterwards that he was surprised to see Maguire acting in such a way and also revealed that he feels the constant theatrics of players detract from the overall quality of games at the World Cup.
