Mourinho tips England for final

England have a poor record against Sweden in competitive games

England have a poor record against Sweden in competitive games

"We've proven to other people and to ourselves that when we're at the right level we can make it very hard for teams, and we're not going to try to do anything else against England", midfielder Sebastian Larsson told reporters.

"Every team has lots of diving, lots of pretending and lots of putting pressure on the referee". The game loses quality, and for me that was the negative point.

England reached the last eight in dramatic fashion as they edged out Colombia in a penalty shootout. Even with VAR the players are creating problems.

English and Swedish soccer players competing in the World Cup are sending messages of hope to the members of a youth soccer team trapped in a cave in Thailand.

Former England manager Sven-Goran Eriksson says the team would have a better chance of beating Brazil than Sweden in their World Fifa Cup quarterfinal on Saturday (Sunday NZ Time).

Dollar takes a breather as trade concerns linger
Currently, the currency pair is trading at 6.6330 - up 0.24 percent on the day, but well below the high of 6.6390 seen on Friday. The benchmark CSI300 Index ended the day down 1.3 percent, and the Shanghai Composite Index was off 0.94 percent.

However, he believes that Sweden can beat England "if they continue what they've done in the World Cup so far".

Eriksson, who guided England to two World Cup quarter-finals in 2002 and 2006, believes that this defensive stubbornness will be enough to keep Harry Kane and company off the scoresheet and will ultimately seal a Swedish victory.

Having finished second in their group, England avoided the likes of Brazil, France and Uruguay in their side of the draw and Matthaus feels this will benefit the Three Lions as they will not have to face one of these strong sides until the final until July 15.

"For many years England is not reaching this stage of the competition, so being in the quarterfinals, playing against Sweden, having for the semifinal the victor of Russian Federation versus Croatia, I would say England has a golden chance to be in the World Cup final", he said.

"All we (can) do is focus on our own game".
