England fans in Russian Federation said they were daring to dream of glory on Saturday (July 7) after the national side cruised past Sweden 2-0 and into a World Cup semi-final for the first time in 28 years. Even at 0-0 and 1-0 you could not see them scoring.

Among them were brothers Roy and James Ovel, who only made the decision to travel after the penalty shootout win over Colombia, and paid £600 for category one tickets. "I've been involved in matches versus Sweden many times and the team always has a very strong identity with better players than people sometimes give them credit for. We've scored set-play goals because of him up to this point and today he's got the one he deserved".

"We're going to be playing in the final next weekend". "[Didier] Deschamps is able to make them play in a good way and it's a pleasure to watch their games".

On its Twitter page, the London Ambulance Service's joint response unit said: "Obviously we are chuffed with the result this afternoon but there is absolutely no excuse to vandalise emergency service vehicles by jumping on them".

As of Friday, official Federation Internationale de Football Association ticket sales for the game stood at 32,000, meaning it was feared there could be as many as 10,000 empty seats at the 42,000-seater stadium.

"What else can you say - I was elated".

Aoife Heffron, Spokesperson for BoyleSports said: "England are in the World Cup semi-finals in what will be the Three Lions third ever appearance".

What we know is this Russian side is more than willing to sit back in two blocks of five and grind for 90 minutes or more. Earlier on Friday, France and Uruguay open the quarter finals when the face each other in Nizhny Novgorod at 10 a.m.

The 23-year-old, who is originally from Preston but has lived in Moscow for a year, said he had a 12-hour vehicle journey to Samara from Nizhny Novgorod after watching France beat Uruguay.

Goalkeeper Jordan Pickford made some important saves as Sweden rallied in the second half, and felt England had shown a mental strength to progress.

"We are a team that are still improving, we know where we are and we are having success because everybody is working hard on the field", the England manager said.

A spokesman for the force said the arrests were for public order offences after the Three Lions won a World Cup penalty shoot-out for the first time.

"We're only playing the teams that we're playing because he made a fearless decision to rest those players", Neville said. We've still got a long way to go. It's our turn this time, hopefully.

"I'm not sure we can do it, no. I'd just love to see it".
