How do the World Cup quarterfinalists compare?

We lost one of the world's greatest: Captain Granqvist praises Sweden for moving on from Zlatan

On the other side of the World Cup bracket, Belgium, Brazil, France and Uruguay will battle to reach the final, with only the Uruguayans ranking below England in FIFA's world rankings before the World Cup.

England beat Colombia 4-3 on penalty kicks and will face Sweden in the quarterfinals in Samara on Saturday.

Jamie Vardy did not take a penalty in England's win over Colombia after penalty shootouts.

The Leicester City striker was introduced to the match in the 88th minute in an attempt to find a winning goal before the end of regular time. Kane's Tottenham Hostpur teammate, Dele Alli, has previously streamed his games on Twitch and both of them have played with Fortnite sensation Tyler "Ninja" Blevins in the past.

After a disappointing 1-1 draw against Switzerland, 2-0 wins over Costa Rica, Serbia and Mexico have taken Brazil into a seventh straight quarter-final and they remain the favorites to erase the scars of a humiliating 7-1 semi-final thrashing at the hands of Germany four years ago. Is it finally okay to like England?

"We had to make a couple of changes because of injuries during the extra-time period", Metro UK quoted Southgate. My brain says England, though my heart says Sweden.

More news: Joachim Low's side eliminated in Russian Federation with worst campaign since 1938

Fernando Hierro's side were considered to be one of the favourites from the competition, but saw their chances of a second World Cup triumph after being defeated by Russian Federation.

Players stepped up and performed when their nations needed them most, but there are only 11 places in our team of the last 16. "It's going to be a real tough test".

"Many teams have tried to break down Sweden".

The Three Lions have quietly gone about their business in Russian Federation so far, but with only eight teams left the role of underdog no longer fits them. He is widely seen as the team's best player ever.

Forsberg eventually established himself for Sundsvall before moves followed to Malmo in 2013 and then RB Leipzig in 2015, who he has since helped win promotion and twice finish in the top six of the Bundesliga.

England's Swedish former manager, Sven-Goran Eriksson, also warned that Sweden, who have conceded only two goals in four World Cup matches, will be extremely hard opponents.
