Best 2018 FIFA World Cup Round Of 16 XI

We lost one of the world's greatest: Captain Granqvist praises Sweden for moving on from Zlatan Petkovic: Let them think this half of the World Cup is weak

England are now one win away from a first World Cup semifinal in 28 years and will be heavy favorites on Saturday, when they face Sweden in Samara at 10 a.m. ET.

Back home in Helsingborg, his wife Sofie is already overdue to give birth to their second child.

"It's coming home." That's the sentence that any English football fan will respond with if you ask them about England's chances in the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

Players stepped up and performed when their nations needed them most, but there are only 11 places in our team of the last 16.

England have finally broken their penalty shoot-out curse.

"We've had a very constructive and supportive meeting with the Medway police licensing team who are happy to work with us to continue showing the World Cup, however, we have taken the internal decision that, despite the support and encouragement of the police licensing team, we are not prepared to continue to provide this service".

"Their strikers are defenders when it's time to defend and they can defend in their own box as well".

The Three Lions booked a quarter-final spot against Sweden after defeating Colombia on penalties in Moscow on Tuesday night.

Russian players were on their knees in exhaustion after defending for 120 minutes in Moscow with just 26 percent possession and they must now summon another huge physical effort, with Croatia expected to dominate the ball once more.

One of only two teams to win all four games so far, Uruguay boast one of the meanest defenses in Russian Federation marshaled by talismanic captain Diego Godin, and a lethal strikeforce in Edinson Cavani and Luis Suarez. This was special, but I want us to go on now. Let us know in the comments section below.

Brazil, Belgium, France and Uruguay will hold news conferences ahead of their respective quarter-final meetings on Friday.

Russia: The hosts have delighted their public by surpassing all expectations to make it to the last eight thanks to a stunning penalty shootout elimination of 2010 winners Spain. He has seven goals in 25 appearances for England, but has yet to find the net at the World Cup this summer.

Croatia are 6/5 to win, the draw is at 2/1 and Russian Federation are 11/4 to progress.
