Why Griezmann didn't celebrate France goal against Uruguay

England or Sweden will play the victor of Saturday's other quarter-final, in which host nation Russian Federation will aim to keep defying the odds when they play Luka Modric's skilful Croatia side.

Brazil have not lifted the World Cup since 2002 and will have to stand by and watch as a European side win it for the fourth time in a row.

France is moving on to the semi-finals for the first time since 2006, after a 2-0 win over Uruguay.

However, Swedish-born Eriksson insists it would be foolish to dismiss England's quarter-final opponents after they topped a group featuring Germany and Mexico before ousting Switzerland in the last 16. "That will hurt them the most".

England or Sweden will play the victor of Saturday's other quarter-final, in which host nation Russian Federation hope to keep their rollercoaster ride through the finals going when they play Croatia. I didn't think for one minute their hearts would give way.

"England have the players individually to do something special".




England have endured a mixed campaign so far.

Diego Maradona has apologised to Federation Internationale de Football Association over his criticism of referee Mark Geiger following England's World Cup penalty shoot-out win over Colombia in the round of 16 on Tuesday.

"Congratulations to England and Southgate", he added. Only one of those countries - England, in 1966 - has previously won football's greatest prize. Mentally, they were very, very strong. Again, it'll be a very tight affair, with Russian Federation being very patient and playing for penalties, which worked for them last time.

Sweden may be underdogs going into Saturday's meeting with England, but Janne Andersson's side have triumphed from such a position many times before - and captain Andreas Granqqvist has warned the Three Lions that they're not to be taken lightly. They have young, hungry players. "It's not straightforward because we won't see everything, but we'll have a feel from what they're reporting and the way they're running, and then we can try to make the best decisions we can".

Suárez was sent home on both the occasions and might as well be this time, if Uruguay fails to beat France in the quarter-finals.

Yet Eriksson does not consider that a major issue given he thinks the team's strength to be how it functions as a unit. Soon you will know who will play and who will be on the bench...
