I JUST DON’T THINK YOU UNDERSTAAAAAAAND

Dele All hasn’t had the best of World Cups leading up to today’s quarterfinal between Sweden and England. He played well in the Three Lions’ first group stage match against Tunisia but picked up a calf injury and missed the next two matches. He didn’t look especially great in England’s Round of 16 win over Colombia either.

All that’s forgotten now. Dele fired home a back post header in the second half to score his first World Cup finals goal and put England up 2-0.

AND THEN HE CELEBRATED WITH A FORTNITE DANCE!

This guy. Not five minutes earlier I had noted on Carty Free’s twitter account that I didn’t think he looked right, and then he goes and does that. Serves me right. I’m a believer, I’m sorry Dele.

Dele was subbed off for Fabian Delph in the 77th minute.

The goal gives England a comfortable lead and they look in good shape at the time of posting to head to the World Cup semifinals, where they would face the winner of Croatia and hosts Russia.
