The match will be played at Samara Arena in Russia on July 7. England proved themselves to be title contenders when they beat Panama, scoring six goals and conceding only one in the group stage. They have also proven that it won’t be easy for any team to compete with them this year.

Sweden has also accentuated their teamwork in the group stage matches as well as in the round of 16. They played against Switzerland in the knockout stage and won by 1-0. Their biggest game in the World Cup was against Mexico when Sweden scored three goals and conceded none.

According to Daily Mail, both teams have come head-to-head four times since World Cup 2006 with England winning two, Sweden winning one, and the fourth being a draw.

What to expect

Both teams have done their best, in their previous games, to reach this stage and they will do whatever they can to not let their fans down. There will be so much at stake for both the teams. The teams have lost one game each in the group stage match and will try to avoid another one.

However, Sweden will play the underdog as England is one of the strongest teams in the World Cup. Even though England lost against Belgium, they’ve played well in the rest of the games. Before the World Cup, no one was expecting a team like Sweden to break out of group stages, especially after they had teams like Mexico and Germany in the same group.

However, their outstanding teamwork earned them this stage.

Soccer fans can expect the unexpected as Sweden has the ability to stun England like Russia did with Spain in the round of 16. It's highly possible that England will proceed further, but this World Cup hasn’t ceased to befuddle fans.

Playing-11 prediction

England boss, Gareth Southgate, from his last playing-11 against Columbia, can make a few changes.

The Express noted that the left-back player, Ashley Young, picking up an injury in the round of 16, can miss the game tomorrow. The star midfielder can also be dropped for the game after picking up a knock injury.

England Lineup: Pickford, walker, Stones, Maguire, Hernandez, Rose, Alli, Lingard, Trippier, Sterling, Kane.

Swedish coach, Janne Andersson, can come up with an unchanged playing-11 from the last game in the round of 16.

All the players have been doing well, so far, and none of them deserve to be dropped out for a big game like this.

Sweden's Lineup: Olsen, Krafth, Lindelof, Granqvist, Augustinsson, Claesson, Svensson, Ekdal, Forsberg, Berg, Toivonen
