England has a chance to reach their first World Cup semi-final in 28 years as their young guns led by the mercurial Harry Kane look to scale new heights with each passing game. The English fans have started to believe that this might be their World Cup and the expectations from Gareth Southgate and his boys will be nothing less than a triumph over Sweden in the quarter-finals of FIFA World Cup 2018. However, it is not as easy as it seems on paper, at least, with Sweden having developed this habit of knocking over big guns – Italy, Netherlands and Germany – in the past.
Ashley Young will have to pass a late fitness test to make it to the starting eleven for England, after the ankle injury he picked up late in the game against Colombia. Should he be declared unfit, Tottenham’s Danny Rose will be drafted in the squad. The big dilemma for Gareth Southgate will be the selection of an underperforming Raheem Sterling over Marcus Rashford, who has looked good whenever he has come off the bench. Dropping Sterling from the starting eleven in the crucial tie just might be too risky for the English gaffer, who is likely to go for an unchanged eleven. 2018 FIFA World Cup Quarter-Finals Match Predictions: France, Brazil, Croatia and England Favorites to Qualify for Semi-Finals.
Harry Kane has scored 14 goals in his last ten outings with England and is leading the race for the Golden Boot with six goals in Russia, so far. He has performed in all the games for the Three Lions and is probably their biggest asset. Kieran Trippier has moulded his game on David Beckham, and the results are there for all to see with him being the third most creative force in Russia so far. His partnership with Jordan Henderson has been a revelation and one that will stay for years to come!

Sweden is monitoring the fitness of Albin Ekdal and Jimmy Durmaz who are both carrying slight niggles ahead of the tie against England. They will welcome back midfielder Sebastian Larsson who missed the last game due to suspension. Skipper Andreas Granquist will also be available after he prioritised national duties over personal issues with his wife gave birth to their daughter. Granquist's gesture just shows how committed these athletes are to the cause of their nation.
Main man up-front for Sweden undoubtedly is Emil Forsberg who has a certain spark about him. The talented playmaker’s lucky strike played a significant role in sinking Switzerland and will hope his goal-scoring form continues. Striker Marcus Berg has had more shots on goal without scoring than anyone in the tournament so far, and it will be interesting to see if he finally gets his name on the score sheet. Sweden has never lost to England in the World Cup, and the tie is evenly balanced with very little going in anyone’s favour.
