How to Watch Sweden vs England

Expert view from Sweden'England feel beatable

Ibrahimovic told Sweden's Expressen newspaper on Thursday (Friday NZT) that "now it's not just about how good you are", adding that England can be "tough and hard to score against". "They are a team that I think in the past have been underestimated - we won't make that mistake". Hopefully we get to watch the match.

He added that England had "been given the opportunity to move it nice and slow" but that they have "method to their build-up".

The hosts will then take on Croatia at the Fisht Olympic Stadium in Sochi for the last remaining semi-final place.

The Swedes have conceded just once in their last six games and they will be buoyed by a very respectable record against the English, with just one defeat in their last eight meetings. "They wouldn't be where they are if they weren't". Iceland was short of big names but big on team, and Eriksson described Sweden as "world champions of team spirit".

As Yerry Mina towered above Harry Maguire to give Colombia a 93rd minute equaliser and cancel out Harry Kane's penalty, there was been a real sense of déjà vu for the majority of England fans who have seen the Three Lions exit major tournaments on penalties time and time again.

Uruguayan president thanks national team for World Cup show
Sweden's all-time top scorer Zlatan Ibrahimovic , who retired from global football in 2016, said the quarterfinal match between the Swedes and England involves "a lot of emotions".

Emil Forsberg has been Sweden's shining light in attack and has displayed his ability to link up well with fellow midfielders as well as Sweden's strikers to good use. "They play more offensively now than they did before, with skillful players like (Raheem) Sterling".

Sweden's solid defence has kept three clean sheets in four games in Russian Federation, but coach Janne Andersson will be forced into at least one change at the back, with Celtic's Mikael Lustig suspended.

"We are there to push them".

"But the bottom line is we're through and that's really all that matters". Sweden's strength is their organisation at the back, but England have got the players to open them up, especially out wide, and I can see them getting some joy when they come forward.
