       Emil Krafth says Sweden always work as a team ahead of their quarter-final match againist England

Enthused by an exciting young squad and a potentially kind draw against Sweden in Saturday's quarter-final, England fans are starting to believe they can end a 52-year wait to win the World Cup.

'It's been a bit of fun the way it's worked out, that we're playing Sweden'. "They are a team that I think in the past have been underestimated - we won't make that mistake".

Former Sweden global Hakan Mild labelled Southgate's youthful squad as "spoilt children who earn a lot of money" earlier this week and noises coming out of Janne Andersson's camp have broadly amounted to a feeling England may not be able to cope with their battling qualities. "We have good players available to come in", he said. "They play more offensively now than they did before, with skillful players like (Raheem) Sterling". Sweden has also held their opponents scoreless in three out of four of their games, and they'll be looking to do the same to England this weekend.

National team manager Lars Richt said: "I talked to Zlatan".

"England are favourites, yes, of course they are but we don't mind".

After a cagey 30 minutes of extra time, England fans would have been fearing the worst as the match headed for penalties. Once he came on, I felt we lost the initiative a little bit.

Sweden and England face-off in what could shape up to be a thrilling quarter-final clash, but the fates of these teams will be decided by crucial battles on the pitch.

.

As Sweden heads into their match with England, Ibrahimović is backing his nation for success. I see this going all the way again and I can actually see England having to come from behind just to get to extra time as they'll have heavy legs.

Charlie Nicholas, Sky Sports: "England have more quality, there's absolutely no doubt about that, but I've not been caught up with the fluency of their play. But, whatever happens, I do not miss the quarter-final".

Sweden beat Switzerland 1-0 on Monday, a day before England progressed 4-3 on penalties following a 1-1 draw. We're predicting a tactical stalemate that only penalty kicks can decide.
