"But this time it might be different and we dare to dream". "I feel like if the togetherness is still there, which it is always, we control our ability on the pitch".
"We know in years to come they're going to be stronger".
Kane's team-mate Dele Alli has come under fire for what some perceive to be below-par performances at this tournament, but Southgate believes the Tottenham midfielder could hold the key to unlocking a stout Swedish defensive backline.

"Everyone has been able to see this since the beginning of the World Cup, and now we expect to be here until the last day".
"So it's about creating chances and Dele's a player who gives us an option to do that".

Leicester defender Maguire headed in the opening goal from a corner on 30 minutes, with Alli adding a second just before the hour.
