Things England Need To Improve To Beat Sweden

Mexico gosal

We have lads, Gareth Southgate had said, "from Barnsley, Leeds, Bolton, Blackburn". Sweden's strength is their organisation at the back, but England have got the players to open them up, especially out wide, and I can see them getting some joy when they come forward.

As if there wasn't already enough riding on tomorrow's World Cup quarter-final, David Beckham and Zlatan Ibrahimovic just upped the stakes even more. The two nations have a very balanced record when they meet, so this match will be hard to predict. England have won eight times, Sweden seven, and their have been nine draws.

Swedish great Ibrahimovic who now plays in the United States, challenged the former England captain on Friday to a wager on the outcome of Saturdays England v Sweden game.

Raheem Sterling has now played three out of England's four games at the 2018 World Cup, having been rested against Belgium along with the majority of Southgate's preferred 11.

This is echoed by former England captain Steven Gerrard - who was a member of the squad that crashed out of the 2006 World Cup against Portugal.

They were expected to talk all day Saturday before Pompeo heads to Tokyo to brief Washington's Japanese and South Korean allies. The officials discussed a range of issues, including the return of the remains of United States troops killed in the Korean War.

A chant of "On our way, on our way, to Moscow, on our way" came from England fans in one corner of the Samara Arena.

Beckham agreed to Ibrahimiovic's terms of purchasing him whatever he wants from IKEA if Sweden triumph and move into the semi-finals at Russian Federation 2018.

If they beat Sweden today, only the victor of Croatia and Russian Federation will stand in their way to the final in Moscow on July 15.

Both said they would be supporting Sweden, not because they want England to lose, but because they want Germany to remain the only team to beat the Scandinavian side in this World Cup.
