They had now reached the semi-finals for the first time since 1990 and for the third time ever. Sweden were playing in their fifth World Cup quarter-final, reaching the semi-finals in 1938, 1958 and 1994. Their only previous failure was in 1934 against Germany. In his tenth appearance, Harry Maguire scored his first goal for England. He became the eighth player to score for England in a World Cup quarter-final and the second England player to score his first international goal in the quarter-finals or later of a World Cup since Alan Mullery against West Germany in 1970. Dele Alli became the fifth different player to score a goal for England at Russia 2018 to equal their record for the most scorers at a World Cup finals; also 1954, 1998 and 2002. At 22 years and 87 days, he became the second youngest-ever player to score for England at a World Cup finals after Michael Owen against Romania in 1998 (18 years and 190 days). England had now scored ten or more goals in a World Cup finals for a seond time; also 1966. Including two goalless qualifiers for Italia '90, all four previous meetings in the World Cup have been drawn (1-1 in 2002 and 2-2 in 2006). Harry Kane failed in his attempt to become only the third player to score in seven consecutive appearances for England after George Camsell (nine, 1929 to 1936) and Steve Bloomer (ten, 1895 to 1899). Goalkeeper Robin Olsen had kept three clean sheets at Russia 2018 to equal the record for Sweden at a World Cup finals; also Ronnie Hellström in 1974 and Karl Svensson in 1958. Sweden had conceded two goals in their previous six games; both in their 2-1 group stage defeat by Germany.
