Colombia Football Federation Post Respectful Tweet Following England Defeat

Sweden's strong collective is aiming to make life hard for their more illustrious English counterparts when the two sides meet in their World Cup quarter-final clash on Saturday.

England manager Gareth Southgate said he "doesn't want to go home" as he called on his young side to build on their penalty shoot-out victory over Colombia in the Soccer World Cup last 16 on Tuesday night.

With the squad now back at their base camp in Repino, the focus has been firmly shifted onto quarter final opponents Sweden, who England will meet in Samara on Saturday.

The Home Counties Premier League, whose matches already start earlier, will get under way at the usual time. I think sometimes around major tournaments the relationships between our guys and the media has been a bit confrontational and I don't think it has to be that way.

Sky Sports have reported that Alli will train on Thursday with England to give them a fitness boost, with Jamie Vardy the only serious doubt for the Sweden showdown. I knew where I was going to put it.

"Defensively we look extremely sound, but I think we need more attacking prowess going forward to try and score more goals from open play".

LeBron James’s L.A. Lakers Jersey Is Already a Best-Seller
This was all because of the pressure James put on the organization with his short-term contracts and his demands to win now. Cleveland's Kevin Love is no longer part of a championship contender, and that means the Cavaliers are in a state of flux.

"So we'll know more tomorrow".

After a cagey 30 minutes of extra time, England fans would have been fearing the worst as the match headed for penalties.

The Brazilian has been criticised for going to ground easily throughout the tournament, but statistics show that he is the most fouled player in Russian Federation.

England and Sweden have twice met at the World Cup with both encounters in 2002 and 2006 ending in stalemates. It was not attractive football against us, but lovely football does not always win.

Larsson has spent his adult life in England playing for a variety of clubs in England's top two divisions, and with a move back to Sweden and AIK already secured, this might be the last English fans get to see of the 33-year-old.

Dier's ability to hold his nerve under such extreme pressure was made even more impressive by his lack of penalty-taking experience, especially when compared to the likes of fellow spot kick takers Harry Kane and Marcus Rashford.
