Sweden v England: Preview
After a tense win over Colombia via penalties, England have succeeded in making it through to the World Cup Quarter-Finals, and now face Sweden this Saturday at the Samara Arena.
Gareth Southgate’s men secured their place in the Quarter-Finals of World Cup 2018 after a heart-stopping penalty shoot-out against a dogged Colombian team.
Sweden on the other hand managed a 1-0 win over Switzerland in 90 minutes, and have made it through to their first Quarter-Finals of of a World Cup in 24 years.
This is one of the most important games that England will have played in quite some time, and bookmakers offer them as favourites to win and take their spot in the Semi-Finals.
The match against Colombia proved to be one of the most tense games of World Cup 2018 so far, with England losing their 1-0 advantage in the last minutes of the match.
Luckily they managed to turn things around in the penalty shoot-out, which weas no mean feat having lost 6 of their 7 previous World Cup shoot-outs.
Hopefully this will give the team an extra confidence boost heading into the Sweden game.
Sweden had a slightly easier time reaching the Quarter-Finals with a 1-0 win over Switzerland in normal time. Although they've had a decent World Cup campaign so far, it will be a huge challenge for them to beat England.
It therefore won't be a surprise if Sweden v England ends in another draw on Saturday as there's no way either team won’t give it their all given that a place in the Semi-Finals is the reward.
The winner of this match will face either Russia or Croatia in the Semi-Finals, and if England can beat Sweden, there's absolutely no reason why they can’t make it to the Final.
