They have to be among the weakest teams in the quarters. Along with us, based on tonight’s performance :)

We ought to beat them but it’s not been working out that way this year. The odd goal or penalties again is my gut feel

It will be totally different to tonight's debacle.

It will be tight because both sides won't want to make mistakes but at least the football will be normal and not like tonight's cheating and messing about.

I expect it to be a much better game than tonight and England can win it if they can push on from here but each game you must improve a bit to get through.

It's another day out for you lot and there's nothing quite like it. :)

If we can score reasonably early and force them to chase the game, we'll stroll home.

Saw Sweden v Mexico and they looked competent , they soaked up everything Mexico threw at them and wore them down - Sweden are a strong functional team .


England 3 Sweden 0 .

Sweden were awful today. We should be 3-0 up by half time.

We’ll probably concede a 90th minute equaliser

Like I said on the last game thread, Sweden are going to be a f***ing tough nut to crack. This is where tactics have got to be spot on.
All I can really think of is that little, fat, Swedish c***, Tomas F***ing Brolin, knocking us out abysmally, in Euro '92. Swedes & Turnips, indeed...
Revenge is needed, big time.

RLC has to play as does hopefully Rashford...because neither Sterling or Lingaard did much today...Lingaard does have THAT goal to his credit but Sterling has nothing at all to offer except pace...

no guile at all...loads of attacks (seemed to me) ended up when the ball got to him....

cheers Raheem but take a seat on the bench son....

This will be the worst game of the world cup. Sweden are a horrible side, they will aim to waste time as much as possibly, sit back and try to get something on the counter. I just can't see us winning this sadly. Glad my holiday starts on Friday, or work will be a nightmare.

Should be thrill a minute stuff - 2 sides who can't create chances from open play, lobbing FKs into the box all game.

Going to be very interesting. Sweden have been incredible with at very weak side on paper. It’s going to be tight, and definately not a stroll for England. The English arrogance never denies itself.....

English arrogance? It won't be an easy game but there's nothing wrong with having a bit of confidence. I'd expect nothing less from Swedish fans either, and why the hell not, it's a quarter final!
