World Cup 2018 quarter-finals three and four previews

England

England

The last time Sweden reached the World Cup final was in 1958, when they were defeated by Brazil.

The Italian sports newspapers have spoken about Gareth Southgate's revolution, and his move to introduce a three-man defence was certainly impressive to them. "Even if you thought England wouldn't get that far there are some football obsessed people out there who watch every game".

England has, however, looked promising and Englishman Harrison has hailed the Three Lions performances so far. "Totally her right to think so but I can see how she will end up with some people not turning up". They're a good group.

But for the nation that founded football, England played a rather unusual role in promoting global football competition. "They are strong, fast and they don't make a lot of mistakes". "Sweden today are a very hard team to break down". This time no one expected much - they were so used to being kicked in the teeth - but once they started playing it all changed.

With no official song for England at this year's World Cup, football fans have re-embraced 1996 classic, Three Lions.

"Many teams have tried to break down Sweden".

There are a number of outdoor screens around the United Kingdom which will be showing the match live, and the atmosphere promises to be a whole lot livelier than watching the game from your living room. I think that they aren't ready to make history at the moment.

Brazil's World Cup misery continues at the hands of Belgium
But it was too late for Brazil to muster an equalizer as Courtois thwarted several efforts to force the game into extra time . That set up the game nicely for a manic finish in which a clearly rattled Belgium failed to regain their attacking momentum.

"I would show it, everyone's going to be checking phones otherwise, my dad was at a wedding in 66 and they showed the match at the reception until it went to extra time".

According to data from the Centre for Retail Research (CRR) the United Kingdom has "benefited from extra spending of more than £1bn this year" because of the World Cup, the BBC reports.

One of the best qualified to speak about England's chances is Andrea, founder of Italian site "Il Calcio Inglese" for aficionados of the English game on the peninsula.

One of the most famous voices in football says it would be beyond words if England went onto win the World Cup in Russian Federation. I think you'd be better off putting an attacking midfield player.

Since 2006 the World Cup has been reserved exclusively for Europeans, when Italy beat France for the trophy.

The song's chorus has become a favourite chant of England fans at every major global football championship the team has taken part in since 1996.
