Confident Sweden keen on England showdown

Croatia world cup win

England's victory against Colombia takes Gareth Southgate's team into what looks like a winnable match against Sweden, who edged out Switzerland 1-0 earlier on Tuesday.

"But today is a special moment for this team and hopefully will give belief to new generations of players that follow". It is a great game to be in. "I can't explain it in English", Sweden's Kennet Andersson said after the quarterfinal. Our record against them is not good. We have underestimated them for years.

England's reward is a World Cup quarter-final assignment with Sweden in Samara on Saturday afternoon.

Geiger awarded England a penalty in the 57th minute but Harry Kane needed to wait several minutes before taking it as Colombian players had surrounded the referee, disputing his decision.

Kylian Mbappe announced himself on the global stage with a double in France's 4-3 win against Argentina in the last 16, and Griezmann showed signs he is starting to fire.

Overturning long-held preconceptions about football's two main land masses, this year's quarter-finals pitch thrilling and adventurous European teams against pragmatic, stubborn and defensively-minded South American opponents.

A third tweeted her admiration for Southgate: "He's been there, it destroyed him, he got back up with more self-belief and compassion to rise to the top".

When Portugal's football legend Luis Figo captained his national team to the semi-final of the 2006 World Cup , Ronaldo scored his first World Cup goal.

"We did our research on them, with Margetson and the analysis staff", Pickford said. "Maybe we are getting a bit smarter".

Spain followed Argentina and Portugal out of the tournament on Sunday when they were beaten on penalties by hosts Russian Federation.

Confidence was high throughout even though "we were doing it the hard way, we even lost the toss", Southgate said.

Sweden won the group from which title holders Germany were surprisingly eliminated.

Some things - beating England to win a place in a World Cup semi-final, for example - are more important than politics, it emerged.

"A player fakes a foul, they are trying to get the referee to book another player", he said.

Harry Kane may be the leading scorer at this World Cup with six goals, but three have been penalties, two have come from corners and the other came off his heel when he was facing the other way against Panama.
