Zlatan Says Sweden Has ‘Big Chance’ To Win World Cup

That could have been their fate had they lost their last group game to England, who have been handsomely rewarded for finishing runners-up with - on paper - what appears to be a far-easier route to the final.

The Telegraph has teamed up with Betway to bring you betting tips, predictions and insights for every match throughout the World Cup. "They will love the holiday and ongoing festival that we have created here".

This year, we've also been blessed to witness some "big" teams break respective hoodoos, for instance, England won a penalty shootout in the tournament for the first time in their history. If they can keep it up, they have a good chance.

His drought in Russian Federation comes in the wake of a prolific season for the latest in a long line of clubs. A month earlier, however, Luxembourg had held European Championship runner-up France to a frustrating 0-0 draw in another World Cup qualifier.

France coach Didier Deschamps also made just one forced change: suspended midfielder Blaise Matuidi has been replaced by Corentin Tolisso.

He added that many negative preconceived notions about Russian Federation "simply collapsed" during the tournament.

Player for player, England are comfortably a better team than Sweden, but football is not played on paper and the strength of Andersson's side lies in the collective, which amounts to far more than the sum of its parts.

Berg rediscovered his scoring touch at Greek club Panathinaikos, scoring 65 goals in 99 appearances before his transfer to Al Ain.

Just eight teams remain from the 32 who started the World Cup in Russian Federation. The Russian flag was returned faster on three occasions compared to Croatia's sole success, which means a 3-1 win is on the cards on Saturday. Jamie Vardy, Kyle Walker and Ashley Young are all nursing injuries or knocks following the penalty shoot-out victory over Colombia, and their boss is aware that players may attempt to mislead him about their fitness ahead of such a big game.

Sweden plays England in Samara on Saturday for a place in the semifinals. However, now they've come through that test, football really could be coming home. "Once a scorer, always a scorer".

Sweden are attempting to reach a first semi-final since 1994, when they were beaten 1-0 in the last four by eventual champions Brazil.

Following tension at Euro 2016, there were some fears that fans from several countries at the World Cup, including England, could get into violent clashes with each other and local hooligan groups.

France and Belgium will face off on July 10th at Saint Petersburg Stadium in St. Petersburg.
