Brazil, England and France Favorites Ahead of Quarter Finals

Which player will win the Golden Boot at the World Cup Which player will win the Golden Boot at the World Cup

Theresa May has said she could not bear to watch the penalty shootout that saw England progress to the World Cup quarter-finals.

England's round of 16 clash with Colombia required penalties to decide the victor, with the Three Lions coming out on top after Eric Dier's winning spot kick.

Mild also suggested that the added strain of England's win against Colombia following extra-time and penalties could be significant.

Former Spartak players and members of the club's youth academy periodically lay flowers by Cherenkov's statue, honoring one of the team's most beloved former players. Along with England, France are joint-second favorite to win the World Cup at 7/2.

The Times, though, sees things rather differently and issues a warning: "Resolute Sweden a team to be reckoned with".

Speaking to Sky Sports News from Russian Federation, reporter Rob Dorsett said: "Alli is the most significant concern for Southgate but don't expect the FA to issue a medical bulletin - England don't want to help Sweden in any of their preparations".

Dorsett states that Vardy received an injection after the game, but the injury means that he is a doubt for England's quarter final match against Sweden on Saturday.

Sweden: They are not the prettiest side, but Sweden are extremely effective and happy to play the role of underdog, having seen off the Netherlands and Italy in qualifying and Germany in the group stages.

Eriksson, however, says Sweden's resolute defence which conceded just two goals in the group stage won't fear the Tottenham talisman.

"Sweden are so hard to break down".

The Three Lions have quietly gone about their business in Russian Federation so far, but with only eight teams left the role of underdog no longer fits them.

"Fors is Strong. Swedes have no stars.Three Lions shouldn't make Emil of it", said the Sun, referring to goalscorer Emil Forsberg, whose strike earned a 1-0 win against Switzerland. "He's the one who can change the game, win one-on-ones, and Andreas Granqvist, the captain, is the best player, a fantastic defender - but it's as a team that Sweden has strength".
