Hardly a month ago, someone from the leading bookmakers believed that the Scandinavian team got to the quarter-finals. But the Swedes managed to surprise the world, leaving the group with Germany and Mexico. Leaving behind the world Cup, the reigning Champions of the planet.
In one-eighth wards Janne Andersson has managed in a difficult fight to defeat the Swiss team. Perhaps the quarter-finals is the ceiling for "Vikings". But they made it virtually impossible result.
Representatives of Foggy Albion confidently began their journey to the 2018 world Cup with two victories. Then the wards of Southgate narrowly lost to the Belgians, giving them first place in the group. And thus slightly outsmarting his rival in the fight for the medals. After the defeat of the England team was in a weaker (at least by name) the brackets. And will meet in one-fourth with the Swedes and not with the Brazilians.
Have Kane (who is currently the best scorer of the tournament, though, and has scored the most goals from the penalty spot) and his teammates are unlikely to have serious problems in the game with the Scandinavians. The more that the team is in a good mood, because it is the first time in the history of performances at the world Cup managed to win on penalties.
We are confident in the victory of England. No matter how hard the Swedes, it is unlikely they will be able to oppose anything the more famous rival. Although it is likely that the abundance of goals in the match in Samara the seventh of July the audience will not see.
