Lineup of FIFA World Cup 2018 quarter finals

For all the drama around England, the victor of the tournament is more likely to come from the top half of the draw, where the teams can boast a combined eight tournament wins. But Uruguay is a much stiffer test than Argentina, who barely scraped through to the knockout round.

Sweden have been one of the World Cup's surprise packages, stepping out from the era in which Zlatan Ibrahimovic was the team's talismanic focal point to find strength in unity under Janne Andersson.

The current world-record transfer holder has netted two goals and as many assists in four appearances thus far but his of the ball antics has come under the microscope.

"The criticism is stupid and the response that he is providing for the national team is marvellous".

The veteran enjoyed a resurgence with the New Orleans Pelicans last season and played some of his best basketball in years. If Lonzo gets to dish out a pass to LeBron every once in a while, or maybe set him up for an alley oop, then good for him.

"I find it disappointing for a player that I expected a lot more from", Hislop said.

Belgium were on the brink of another major tournament failure when trailing 2-0 with 21 minutes to play, only for a magnificent breakway goal by Nacer Chadli in the fourth minute of injury-time to cap a stunning fightback.

Neymar was slammed by fans after Brazil's first game in the tournament, and he has been the subject of conversations ever since.

Brazil were very comfortable in beating Mexico last time out, once again creating plenty of chances (xG: BRA 2.74 - 0.66 MEX), as they continue to improve with each match.

Steen: Pressure is on both these teams for a different reason. We lost once, and the others were a draw and, going back before that, Sweden have beaten England in big games.

England had never won a penalty shootout at the World Cup before Tuesday and Eriksson believes overcoming that barrier will prove to be a big boost in the latter stages of the tournament.

The Three Lions are preparing for a last-eight meeting with the Swedes that is set to kick off at 1500BST on Saturday - as is the friendly at the Swansway Chester Stadium.

Federer stuns by appearing in Uniqlo instead of Nike
Uniqlo does not now make tennis footwear. "I assume that the RF line that we've come to know will simply go away", Andrews said. ESPN reported Federer's earnings on-court are around $116m, making this new deal more than double his current tennis paycheck.

"Closer to the match against Croatia, Cherchesov will tell us how to play". Croatia cruised through the group stage but, by paying particular attention to Modric and Rakitic, the Danish were able to force penalties in the Round of 16. At this late stage the logistics of it would be hard too. "It's very hard to come back the way he's done".
