Vardy Doubtful For England Clash With Sweden

FIFA World Cup 2018 Sweden vs Switzerland preview

When asked if Kane could challenge Ronaldo and Messi, Southgate said: "The world always changes, teams go through evolution".

The final two spots in the semi-finals are on the line, with Sweden facing England and Croatia taking on host Russian Federation.

"In the World Cup play-off, Italy couldn't score in 180 minutes, Germany only scored (their winner) with a free-kick at the end".

"I was playing against a lot of friends", said Griezmann, who is teammates with Uruguay defenders Diego Godin and Jose Gimenez at Atletico Madrid, "so I think it was normal not to celebrate".

Here's all the talking points from the 23rd day of this summer's World Cup. And it's giving countries like Sweden reason to dream.

Sweden are in a very favorable side of the bracket, with England and the victor of Croatia and Russian Federation the only teams standing in the way of a trip to the final in Moscow. "England will win that one", he argued.

It's an opportunity Andersson could never have imagined when he took charge after Sweden got eliminated in the group stage of the European Championship in 2016, and was soon to lose its biggest star, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, to retirement.

"The best thing for us was to beat them at football", said Stones.

The 19-year-old links up with the big Olivier Giroud (OVR 86) and the tricky Antoine Griezmann (OVR 89) in attack, and if they link up successfully, no defence in the world can keep them out.

"Ever since Janne took over, we've built and laid a new foundation", center back Andreas Granvqist said Monday, adding about Ibrahimovic: "Others have been allowed to take a step forward when we lost one of the world's greatest footballers". But Sweden's success in Russian Federation has largely come down to its obdurate defense, which kept clean sheets in victories over South Korea and Mexico.

Matuidi, whose caution in the last-16 win over Argentina ensured an automatic one-game suspension, reckons Uruguay will prove tough opponents.

"We have a plan like any team and you have to implement that on the pitch".

"This is how we play, this is what we need to do". The victor will play either Croatia or Russian Federation in the semi-final.

Granqvist had plenty of praise for England but believes Sweden could have the edge due to their team spirit.

"However much that sometimes I may have opinions contrary to some refereeing decisions, I have absolute respect for the work - not easy - that the institution and the referees do".
