Default Quarter Final: Sweden - England; 07.07.2018 15:00 CET

  • Sweden and England face each other for the 25th occasion and a third time at a World Cup.
  • Of the previous 24 matches Sweden have won seven, England eight and nine have been drawn.
  • Both World Cup meetings were group games which ended even. The sides drew their opening match 1-1 in 2002 and then 2-2 in the final game in 2006. Sweden did not lead in either game and came back to equalise three times.
  • In eight competitive meetings, including qualifiers, Sweden have won twice, England once and five games have been drawn. The Three Lions' only competitive win was a 3-2 victory at Euro 2012.
  • The last time the sides met was in a friendly in November 2012. Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored all of Sweden's goals in a 4-2 win.

  • Sweden right-back Mikael Lustig is banned after picking up his second yellow card of the tournament and is expected to be replaced by Emil Krafth.
  • However, midfielder Sebastian Larsson returns from suspension and will come back into the side for Gustav Svensson.
  • England forward Jamie Vardy is a major doubt because of the groin strain he suffered against Colombia.
  • Ashley Young has overcome an ankle knock sustained in that game while Kyle Walker is fully recovered from cramp.
  • Jordan Henderson, Jesse Lingard, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Kyle Walker are a booking away from missing a potential semi-final for England.

He will rotating at #10 with hakan.

Safest way to integrate him and in a couple of seasons he can be moved back to deeper position.
