Soccer-Maguire heads England into halftime lead against Sweden

SAMARA, Russia, July 7 (Reuters) - A thumping 30th-minute Harry Maguire header from a corner gave England a 1-0 lead over Sweden in their World Cup quarter-final on Saturday.

Centre-back Maguire connected with an Ashley Young corner to score his first international goal and reward England for their more adventurous approach in a largely cautious first half.

The winners will play either Russia or Croatia, who meet later on Saturday, in the semi-finals. (Reporting by Mitch Phillips, editing by Ossian Shine)
