Harry Kane among England injury concerns ahead of World Cup quarter-final

  • World Cup without Zlatan Sweden's team spirit shines

Sweden advanced to the World Cup quarterfinals for the first time since 1994 with a 1-0 win over Switzerland.

England's reward is a World Cup quarter-final assignment with Sweden in Samara on Saturday afternoon. With Messi now 31 and Ronaldo 33, this World Cup could show us who will pick up the torch. But I'd also find it hard to bet against a side that shows up at every major tournament.

Neither the hosts, whose previous best was a single semifinal appearance as the Soviet Union in 1966 or Croatia, who also reached the last four in 1998, were expected to challenge but have significantly outshone many supposed superiors.

"I thought there were many, many fouls in the game and I don't think we conceded anywhere near the number of our opponents". France are fancied, but Uruguay are no mugs and could pull off the shock.

Harry Kane has revealed the secret to the England football team's current success at the World Cup and yes, you guessed it, it's Fortnite Battle Royale!

It is Neymar who has taken up the mantle for the Selecao from that duo, and the Paris Saint-Germain forward is starting to fire after a slow start to the tournament. Brazil are 11/10 to win on Friday, with the draw at 12/5 and Belgium at 13/5. They are a collective team.

These two sides are no strangers to each other.

England will take on Sweden on Sunday morning in their quarter-final.

Sweden: They are not the prettiest side, but Sweden are extremely effective and happy to play the role of underdog, having seen off the Netherlands and Italy in qualifying and Germany in the group stages.

The song has formed the basis for the narrative around England's 2018 World Cup performance so far, and England fans are genuinely starting to believe that it is indeed coming home.

A Downing Street source said Mrs May watched some of the match but added: "She actually said earlier she struggles to watch penalties because it's a nerve-wracking time".

I was co-commentating on that game and Croatia striker Mario Mandzukic went missing.

Russian Federation were supposed to provide easy opposition for 2010 champions Spain, but put in a dogged display to win on penalties after trailing 1-0.

The 22-year-old scored a stunning free-kick in the win against Saudi Arabia and has been a crucial part of his team's attack.
