The Leicester defender, who was the one to tip the Three Lions ahead in the clash with Sweden seems optimistic on football coming home.

The England international team have so far made most of the draw in Russia as they made their way to the last four. Considering this, it comes as no surprise confidence is building up both in the squad and at home as well, where fans are already expecting senior international honours.

“You can’t get better than that and we’re through – that’s the main thing,” Maguire said, according to Goal.

“We felt we could dominate the ball today. We knew set-plays would be a big thing.”

Asked if football really is coming home this summer, the 25-year-old said: “Hopefully! Fingers crossed.”

Dele Alli was the one to score the second goal for the English squad, thus calming nerves and making life for the English a bit easier for the rest of the clash.
