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".
