In the second half England goal keeper Jordan Pickford saved the day with stunning defense.
The side had been impressive in the tournament this year and after a long 28 years, they advanced to their first World Cup semi-final!
England defied nearly three decades of disappointment to move confidently into the World Cup semi-finals for the first time since 1990 as headers from Harry Maguire and Dele Alli downed a dogged but toothless Sweden 2-0.
Getting past a technically adept Croatia side won't be easy, but the Three Lions have the strength at the back, along with the pace and power in forward areas, to overpower Modric and Co. if they are at their best.
"It was always a scrappy game where we had to withstand a lot of physical pressure, but the resilience of the team and togetherness of the team was crucial".
The Sweden team got in a huddle after the game and Andersson spoke to the players.
"I am not sure anything went wrong, as such", he said.
Most England fans were very, very grateful for modern technology.

Ms Cramer said despite the woman clearly being in "agony", she seemed to be more concerned by the financial impact of treatment. Boston Globe reporter Maria Cramer live-tweeted from the scene and described the woman's leg as "bloody and twisted".
Centre back Maguire connected with an Ashley Young corner to score his first global goal after 30 minutes as England had much the best of the first half.
That was England's eighth set-piece goal at this World Cup, but, while they are seemingly lethal from dead balls, apart from Kane they are not blessed with too many other sharp shooters.
"Up until that corner, I felt that we had everything under control", Sweden coach Janne Andersson said.
Fellow goalscorer Alli said the result was a "great achievement for the team" but said it was not his "best performance".
As England entered its second half against Sweden, an unmarked Dele Alli scored the second goal. "I spoke to the lads today, and none of us fancied going home".
Once again, England found an opening through a set piece scored by Harry.
"We know there is a big game ahead with the semi-final but we are feeling good and we're confident. We worked on that in training so credit to the staff".
