Former boss Sven-Goran Eriksson warns England of Sweden threat

Sweden have reached the last eight for the first time since 1994

Sweden have reached the last eight for the first time since 1994

Sweden will take on England in the World Cup quarter-finals in Samara on Saturday.

"If England win I buy you dinner wherever you want in the world, but if Sweden wins you buy me whatever I want from Ikea, OK?" he proposed on Twitter.

"England have just played a long, tough game with extra-time, and they have hubris".

"It would be easier for England to beat Brazil than to beat Sweden, in my opinion".

"We are a team and we are all happy to be here", said Andersson, who explained that his players have now spent 45 days together.

Andersson said it would take a "holistic approach" to beat England, who are looking to reach their first World Cup semi-final in 28 years. "It's nice within football to affect some things and the players have that opportunity as well because they have a voice and they have influence on young people, especially the young people from the areas they came from. So they have had success, as nobody thought they would".

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.

"It's important we remember Steve (Holland) was at Crewe".

Where the Three Lions have a big advantage is up front, and they will be hoping captain Harry Kane can keep scoring. We've scrapped and fought our way.

"It'll be the most hard game they'll have played, they can bet on that", he told the Daily Mirror ahead of tomorrow's game. They are really important messages for us.

"No passengers, nobody failing to close down, nobody strolling around".

One way they have missed Ibrahimovic, though, is that they have relatively little quality going forward.

Both teams have a tendency to score goals in the second half, but Brazil possess a stingier back line. "The expectation and pressure will be completely different to today". Their strikers are defenders when it's time to defend, and they can defend in their own box as well.
