Maguire puts England ahead against Sweden

England have taken the lead thanks to a Harry Maguire header during their quarter final clash against Sweden.


The Leicester City defender headed in from an Ashley Young corner as the Three Lions went 1-0 up during a scrappy first half in Samara.Meanwhile back in England, life has ground to a halt as everyone flocks to pubs or heads home to watch the big match.


Roads and streets are empty and shops have even closed their doors.


Victory in Samara would be the Three Lions’ first World Cup semi-final in 28 years.


This afternoon's match is being seen as England's best chance to win the tournament in a generation and has led to #footballscominghome tweets sweeping social media this week.


But the last time England even reached a quarter-final was back in 2006 and Gareth Southgate’s men must see off a stubborn Sweden side before they can dare to dream.
