Sweden's Granqvist ready to show England what they missed

FIFA World Cup 2018 Sweden vs Switzerland preview World Cup: Diego Maradona Brands England Win Over Colombia 'Monumental Robbery' Without Even Slightest Hint Of Irony

Team England completed its list of the quarterfinalists at the 2018 FIFA World Cup after a 4-3 penalty shootout win over Colombia at the Spartak Arena in Moscow on Tuesday night after the 1-1 draw during regular time of the closing match in the round of Last 16.

Here, Press Association Sport details everything you need to know about the Scandinavians.

It truly felt like The Three Lions won the whole World Cup when Eric Dier scored the last penalty goal for England, but, understandably, the Colombian supporters were not happy about it.

Sweden's Russian adventure continues to steam ahead after a less than thrilling last 16 win over Switzerland.

"Taken by the thrill of cheering for Colombia the other day, I said a few things and, I admit, some of them are unacceptable", he wrote on Instagram.

"I'm sure that an overwhelming majority of people who came will leave with the best feelings and memories of our country and will come again many times".

They're a team I respect enormously. "We let them have the ball in the places we want them to have the ball", Sweden's captain, who will return to Helsingborgs IF at the end of his World Cup campaign, told reporters.

The goals tailed off when he moved to Serie A side Genoa on a four-year contract in 2011 but Italian football proved to be a great finishing school for the defender, and his lucrative move to Krasnodar followed in 2013.

Canada announced billions of dollars in retaliatory tariffs against the USA on Friday, and the president signalled the trade rattling could continue.


The statistics do not make good reading for England, with just one victory over Sweden in the past eight matches.

Their physical presence is up there with one of the best in worldwide football and that makes them extremely tough to play against.

For all their attacking talent, Argentina were woeful for much of their World Cup campaign and looked particularly weak in defence. Italy couldn't score in 180 minutes in the qualifying play-offs. They then looked to be on course for a famous result against holders Germany before Toni Kroos drilled in a dramatic stoppage-time victor following a free-kick.

England fans have bought 34,235 tickets so far for this World Cup, putting them in the top 10 for tickets purchased.

Sweden's population in 2018, as estimated by the United Nations, stands at 9,983,334.

Sweden, therefore, have both the brand of football and the history to upset Gareth Southgate's men on Saturday afternoon.

"This is the sort of game you dream about as a little boy and we can enjoy it from the first second", said Belgium coach Roberto Martinez.

The footballer is considered one of the best of all time.
