Edmund's coach, Fredrik Rosengren, is Swedish and the British number one insists he is enjoying some banter with his team ahead of the World Cup quarter-final.
"We've worked really hard and we've shown that we really work for each other, we fight for each other and we do it as a collective". It's hard to play against them and to score against them. "They wouldn't be where they are if they weren't", he said.
Zlatan Ibrahimović, Sweden's character of a forward, got things started with posts on social media telling David Beckham, the famed former England national player and Ibrahimović's old Paris Saint-Germain teammate, that he'll buy Beckham dinner anywhere he wants if his team goes down on Saturday. But we'll see. They'll know more than me about the viewing figures, if it affects them, or whatever.
"England are favourites, yes, of course they are but we don't mind". But Gareth Southgate's side also did well to respond after conceding an equaliser so late, and obviously recovering from that. We don't see how England will score through fluid open play, and Sweden won't light up the scoreboard either.
Emil Forsberg will be key to Sweden's chances against England.
Walker has not been at his best, playing in a somewhat unfamiliar role in England's three-man central defence. Colombia managed to tie the game in the 93rd minute, forcing it into extra time, and then to penalties. Russian Federation haven't advanced past the quarter-finals since 1966, while Croatia's run to third in 1998 is their only previous trip into the last four.
Sweden beat Switzerland 1-0 on Monday, a day before England progressed 4-3 on penalties following a 1-1 draw.
"For me, personally, to be going up against England, the country where I have spent 17 years, it's obviously a little bit special".
Martin Laurence, The Guardian: "England's superior quality should just about win out, but it's unlikely to be easy viewing yet again".

Fortnite developer Epic has announced the temporary closure of the game's sandbox mode, Playground , to take place on July 12. On the plus side, Epic Games has said that it has heard fans' pleas for the Playground mode to become a permanent game type.
Very little did not work on this day, and he's allowed his two opponents to collect a total of 17 games through six sets. Fifth seed Juan Martin del Potro thumped Spaniard Feliciano Lopez 6-4 6-1 6-2 in 95 minutes to move into the third round.
We clearly wanted to do more. "But in the end it wasn't enough". "We make sure we work hard for each other on and off the pitch". No. 6-ranked Switzerland had more of the possession but created few clear-cut chances against the well-drilled Sweden defense.
Only a three-goal comeback in the last 15 minutes saw Roberto Martinez's side book their ticket for the last eight. Fernandinho will be replacing him in the starting Xi and that shows the amount of talent they have in the squad.
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.
Previously, Azar had told a Senate committee that his department had 2,047 children remaining in their care. Under an existing legal settlement, children can not be held in custody for longer than 20 days.
After Mexico was eliminated this week by Brazil , fans went to the Izmailovo market in Moscow looking to swap their sombreros. None of the teams in this side of the draw would have begun the tournament with realistic expectations of reaching the final.
It's taken even experienced rescue divers up to five hours to safely navigate the unsafe cave channels to reach the team. The only way to reach them was by navigating dark and tight passageways filled with muddy water and strong currents.
