Records that could be broken in quarter-finals

Gary Lineker England Cameroon World Cup 1990

The coach added, "We have played a number of big games this year and we have the same procedure for every game; we have good procedures in place and good habits".

"There was a coach once who said his team was quite easy to analyse but hard to beat".

"In the 1970's, growing up with Swedish TV, we watched English football and they only showed one game a week", he said. Can history repeat itself?

The quarterfinals of the 2018 FIFA World Cup get underway today and Saturday in Russian Federation, with France taking on Uruguay at 10 AM ET/7 AM PT in Nizhny Novgorod, followed by Brazil facing Belgium in what is likely the highest-profile game of the stage at 2 PM ET/11 AM PT in Kazan.

"Normally the other teams have better players on paper".

This is a fatal mistake for a whole country, who had lots of hopes of their team and feel let down. Greece at Euro 2004 didn't bolster huge talent, but they did have an intimacy rarely seen in other worldwide sides.

The number of football fans donning Team Colombia's bright yellow gear at the over 45,000-seat capacity Spartak Arena obviously surpassed the number of fans rooting for England. "There won't have any extra safety measures taken, since we can see that the ones we already have are working perfectly. It's shameful that this happens in the round of 16 of a World Cup".

Late in his second season there he returned to Sweden and Helsingborg on loan to rediscover his form and rebuild his confidence, playing well enough to secure a move to Dutch Eredivisie side Groningen. Instead, it is built around the idea of grinding out results. If Sweden get a penalty, bank on veteran defender Andreas Granqvist, who has slotted home two at the tournament so far. They don't play pretty football, in fact, they play quite the opposite, but it is serving them well.

He eventually moved to talk radio, including WDAY radio, dominating the local airwaves as a conservative firebrand in the 1990s. Schultz is a graduate of Minnesota State University Moorhead, where as a football quarterback he was named an All-American.

There is no real style to this Sweden team, except to set up defensively and grind their opponent down.

There was a long spell without a win for England against the Nordic nation, between 1968 and 2011 - a spell of 12 games which saw four defeats and eight draws. He didn't act with the same criteria for both teams. Andersson's squad regrouped, and impressively defeated Mexico 3-0 in their final group match to progress to the knockout stage.

Their top scorer in the tournament rather sums their campaign up. Yes, Romelu Lukaku remains the biggest attacking threat for Roberto Martinez, but with so many attacking threats it is almost impossible for Brazil to hone in on just one Belgian player.

The footballer is considered one of the best of all time. He is physical, resolute and steely and it could carry Sweden even deeper into this World Cup. "They are continuing in this World Cup which is something many people probably wouldn't say at the beginning of this competition", he said on Wednesday.

They came through a qualifying group with the Netherlands and France in, finishing second having beaten both teams once on their way to qualifying for Russian Federation. The Tottenham striker had won the spotkick after being wrestled to the ground by Colombia's Carlos Sanchez while defending a corner.

England have set-pieces, Sweden will make some chances, but the game will come down to luck - the team that makes the most of their luck will win. There have been 15 meetings in that time.

Southgate said he was already looking forward to Saturday's quarter-final against Sweden in Samara, with a last-four clash against either Croatia or Russian Federation up for grabs.
