  • Sweden have battled against the odds to reach the quarter-finals of the World Cup for the first time since 1994

Harare City head coach Mark Harrison is positive his fellow countrymen will maintain their impressive World Cup run when they face Sweden in a quarter final clash tomorrow.

Gerrard, 38, made over 100 appearances for England, serving as Three Lions captain at times during his global career and scoring 21 goals along the way.

England and Sweden have twice met at the World Cup with both encounters in 2002 and 2006 ending in stalemates. "It's going to be a very tough match against him but we will do our best to stop him", said Granqvist, who will be partnered by Victor Lindel of in central defence.

"I barely slept last night".

"They have got the country absolutely buzzing and now the pressure is starting to snowball". "Whether or not you take us seriously and how they perceive it, that's very hard for me to say". I think it could be very hard.

Mourinho said he believed England have a "golden chance" to reach the World Cup final for the first time in more than 50 years.

"It would be easier for England to beat Brazil than to beat Sweden, in my opinion".

The victor of Group G will play Japan in the last-16, and then a potential quarter-final against either Brazil or Mexico. The two managers made a combined 17 changes - Belgium nine, England eight - leading many to dub this game the phoney war.

"We're lads who have come from Barnsley and Leeds and Bolton and Blackburn".

"It's important we remember Steve (Holland) was at Crewe". If they can keep it up, they have a good chance. We've scrapped and fought our way.

"We're really strong in our beliefs and we really have been from the outset".

"No passengers, nobody failing to close down, nobody strolling around".

"They should continue doing what they're doing", Ibrahimovic said.

"We are ready, we are ready for the challenge", Gerrard said as Rangers prepare to host Shkupi in the Europa League qualifiers next week. Their strikers are defenders when it's time to defend, and they can defend in their own box as well. "Hopefully we'll win again, at least our bad luck has gone and we've got through penalties now".
