       Emil Krafth says Sweden always work as a team ahead of their quarter-final match againist England

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".
