On Saturday, the third and four World Cup quarter-finals take place in Russian Federation, as the competition reaches the latter stages.

Andreas Granqvist vowed that Sweden will not alter the way they play heading into their World Cup quarter-final with England. England were last in the semi-finals at Italia '90, while Sweden made it to the stage in U.S. '94.

England or Sweden will play the victor of Saturday's other quarter-final, in which host nation Russian Federation hope to keep their rollercoaster ride through the finals going when they play Croatia. "That will hurt them the most".

"They're going to feel bad".

"So I'm very pleased with how it's gone so far, I want to keep pushing and getting better and that's down to what they achieved in their career".

"England have the players individually to do something special".

The French defender made an angled run and met a free kick from the right side from Antoine Griezmann to put his team ahead in the 40th minute in Nizhny Novgorod.

I think England will need to get two goals to be sure, but that'll be hard.

FIFA President Gianni Infantino told President Vladimir Putin that everyone had fallen "in love with Russia" during the World Cup, during a meeting Friday at the Kremlin.

"Congratulations to England and Southgate", he added. "England will win that one", he argued.

They have kept three clean sheets in four outings in Russian Federation but captain Andreas Granqvist will have his work cut out against Harry Kane, the leading scorer in the competition with six goals.

"I'm fully focused on the game tomorrow and my wife is very strong", said the captain, who has no plans yet to leave the team. They won't be fussed about having a lot of the ball, or having a go at England. This match, for Belgium, is the dream case for its players as they will be facing what many say is the best in the world right now, and defeating the Brazilian team would be life-changing for numerous star-studded Belgium roster. They have young, hungry players.

Sweden "had to rebuild from scratch", Andersson said, and that meant constructing a team no longer focused on one player.

Vardy had an injection after the match and will now be sweating for his place in Saturday's quarter-final against the Swedes in Samara.

Yet Eriksson does not consider that a major issue given he thinks the team's strength to be how it functions as a unit.

"When you play against a team who want to fight, disturb your momentum, you can sometimes get dragged into it".

"Sweden don't have a Kane, Sterling or a Neymar".
