England head into semi-finals after win over Sweden

Saturday sees the conclusion of the quarter-finals at the 2018 FIFA World Cup, as England take on Sweden and Croatia face hosts Russian Federation.

The major threat is clearly Emil Forsberg, the left-sided midfielder who has impressed for RB Leipzig.

A victory against Sweden will see the national side qualify for their first World Cup semi-final since Italia 90, when they lost on penalties to West Germany.

If you can't watch the game live, "Hulu with Live TV" also comes with 50 hours of Cloud DVR storage (with the ability to upgrade to "Enhanced Cloud DVR", which gives you 200 hours of DVR space and the ability to fast forward through commercials), allowing you to watch any game after it airs. They set up exactly as England knew they would: two banks of four, two hardworking centre-forwards, defending their penalty area in numbers while trying to hit their opponents' with direct balls when possible.

England: Jordan Pickford 8 (out of 10), Kyle Walker 7, John Stones 7, Harry Maguire 8, Kieran Trippier 7, Dele Alli 7, Jordan Henderson 7, Jesse Lingard 6, Ashley Young 6, Raheem Sterling 7, Harry Kane 6.

Then, as Sweden looked to get back into the match, the favorites finished them off.

The two nations face each other in the quarter-finals at the Samara Arena and the two names that are very familiar amongst Man United supporters have plenty riding on the match. They all count as much as a 25-yard screamer or an intricate team goal, particularly when working within the fine margins of tournament football, but England now have an outstanding chance of making the final despite rarely looking fluent.

It was predictable in many ways, therefore, that the deadlock was broken from a set piece.

I think England will prevail here, against a side that might struggle to break well against Southgate's three-man defence.

But first, Gareth Southgate's side needs to deal with Sweden.

England though can only beat what is put in front of them and they are also a talented team, with I believe more quality than their opponents and the market has them as worthy favourites in my opinion, trading at around [1.95]. It was England's most convincing performance of the group stage when it came to shape and possession, with the team also taking its chances, shooting on frame twice and scoring both of them.
