Jamie Vardy could miss England's World Cup quarter-final against Sweden

Jamie Vardy could miss England's World Cup quarter-final against Sweden

Headers from Harry Maguire and Dele Alli gave England a 2-0 win over Sweden as they reached their first World Cup semi-final in 28 years.

We don't see how England will score through fluid open play, and Sweden won't light up the scoreboard either.

After a laboured start, England took the lead through Maguire's header from a corner (30), his first global goal and England's fifth from a set-piece at this World Cup, more than any other side. Svensson got his first World Cup start replacing the suspended Sebastian Larsson, and played the full 90 minutes in the shutout win. "Everyone's getting behind us in their thousands", added the Manchester City player. Sweden has also held their opponents scoreless in three out of four of their games, and they'll be looking to do the same to England this weekend.

Sweden are in a very favorable side of the bracket, with England and the victor of Croatia and Russian Federation the only teams standing in the way of a trip to the final in Moscow.

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.

"Sometimes they can throw you, these teams".

Listeria risk in frozen vegetables prompts Finnish shops to pull products
So far 47 people have been infected with nine of them subsequently dying in Austria, Denmark, Finland, Sweden and the UK. The 43 sweetcorn-based products have been withdrawn by major supermarket supplier Greenyard Frozen UK.

Shorn of star names since Zlatan Ibrahimovic's retirement from global football, Sweden have thrived off a collective team spirit.

Happy to sacrifice possession, defend deep and wait for their opportunity on the counter-attack, they will let England have most of the ball.

Sweden slowed the tempo early on as the game got off to a boring start, but the first half-chance fell to England as Harry Kane flashed wide from 20 yards after good running from Raheem Sterling.

"We want to create more clear chances and we can".

Sweden's solid defence has kept three clean sheets in four games in Russian Federation, but coach Janne Andersson will be forced into at least one change at the back, with Celtic's Mikael Lustig suspended.

It comes as Ladbrokes reports that one punter has put £20,000 on England to beat Sweden at odds of 19/20. "We need to manage the game well and make the pitch as wide as possible".
