And Nigerians, via Twitter, have congratulated them on their win in Samara.

With England getting to the semi-finals, when these boys return home, no matter what happens after they win this game, they will be celebrated. It’s been a while since England reached such dizzying heights. Euro ‘96. 22 years ago. Italia ‘90. 28 years ago.— JJ. Omojuwa (@Omojuwa) July 7, 2018

They are in the "advantage" side of the draw based on FIFA rankings & they are utilizing it.
No complacency & they do the job plus Pickford has been immerse (Lad is good).
