ROHIT MUNDAYUR gives a preview of the match between England and Sweden:

“Just as Sweden have shown resilience by leaving heavyweights in their wake and by the way they got behind Jimmy Durmaz, England’s win against Colombia was a fair reflection of the mental fortitude the team possesses. They kept pushing during the 30 minutes of extra time that was forced by Colombia due to a stoppage-time equaliser and kept their cool to see their opponents away in the penalty shootout. This stands in stark contrast to the way they seemed to lose any tactical sense after conceding against Iceland during Euro 2016 or the various collapses we have seen from England teams at major tournaments before that.”

Sweden vs England Live Score, FIFA World Cup 2018 Live Streaming: England forward Jamie Vardy is “looking doubtful” for the World Cup quarter-final against Sweden on Saturday after suffering a groin strain having come on as a late substitute in the last-16 win over Colombia, manager Gareth Southgate has said. Vardy was unlikely to be ready to face the Swedes after sitting out training on Thursday, Southgate added. “Vardy didn’t train today, so is looking doubtful for this game,” Southgate was quoted as saying by Sky Sports on Thursday. “But we’ll know a bit more tomorrow (Friday), really. The others were all on the pitch. We didn’t do a lot. “I think at this stage, minimal time on the pitch, a lot of our information is going to have to be in meetings.”
