Eriksson: England has better chance vs Brazil tha n Sweden

Sweden have reached the last eight for the first time since 1994

However he believes that Sweden can beat England "if they continue what they've done in the World Cup so far".

Only one place to start, with striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who is Sweden's all-time record goalscorer with 62 from his 116 caps - and had looked set to come out of worldwide retirement to play at the 2018 World Cup following his move to the Los Angeles Galaxy.

And Eriksson warned that Gareth Southgate's side may have been better off facing tournament favourites Brazil rather than Sweden.

Sweden's all-time top scorer Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who retired from global football in 2016, said the quarterfinal match between the Swedes and England involves "a lot of emotions". "I think England and the fans are happy now because they are in the quarter-finals". That, though, could well take longer than extra-time and penalties... not to mention being far more stressful.

Vaila Barsley plays in Sweden for Eskilstuna United and represented England at youth level, although she has gone on to become an global with the Scotland women's team.

Eriksson said that the Three Lions will find it hard to break Janne Andersson's side down.

Despite all the pre-tournament jitters, Russian Federation 2018 has turned out to be one of the best World Cups ever, with high drama and memorable goals making for a thrilling spectacle.

Sweden head coach Janne Andersson, 55, has built Sweden's progress around a strong team ethic rather than any one star individual as the players look to emerge from Ibrahimovic's shadow.

If they beat Sweden in Samara, they will be in the semi-finals for the first time since 1990.

"When Sweden wins, let´s see what David Beckham tells me". "For the first time I feel we meet a country who's more or less on a par with us in that respect", he said. "It's going to be a very tough match against him but we will do our best to stop him", said Granqvist, who will be partnered by Victor Lindelof in central defence. It will be very tight. In 2015, Andersson took IFK Norrkoping to an unexpected Swedish top-flight title and was handed the national team job following Euro 2016, where the team finished bottom of their group.

'Italy couldn't score in 180 minutes in the qualifying play-offs. Germany struggled in the group stage and needed Toni Kroos' free-kick to save them.

'Switzerland could have played for a week and still not scored against Sweden'.

"The defence is a great strength". Both teams came through Round of 16 via penalty shootouts. "It's a good thing that England are scoring from corners, penalties and free-kicks, and they look very risky from these all the time".
