Betting Tip: @ England to win 1-0 @ 19/4 with betvictor

What a time to be alive! England are three games away from WINNING THE WORLD CUP. They are also a match away from going out of the competition. Every silver lining and all that.

Even so, if you had offered Gareth Southgate a quarter final tie against Sweden before the competition started, he would have signed on the dotted line without reading the small print.

The Swedes should not be taken lightly. They are a team who have qualified from a World Cup group that included France and the Netherlands, while the Scandinavian side then beat Italy over two legs to reach the World Cup.

They have subsequently beaten South Korea and Mexico to come out of a group that also included Germany, with Janne Andersson’s side defeating Switzerland on Tuesday which sets them up for this game.

There’s a very settled look about the Swedish team and the creativity of Emil Forsberg is something that England would benefit from, although the Three Lions will hope to have the centre-halves pushing forward for this clash.

Hamburg’s Albin Ekdal will have to be on his toes to stop Jesse Lingard and Raheem Sterling making piercing runs, with Dele Alli potentially making way for Ruben Loftus-Cheek in this clash.

Where England are vastly superior is in the centre forward position, with Marcus Berg playing his football in Abu Dhabi and Ola Toivonen another modest striker coming towards the end of his career.

It will be tight and cagey although we’re confident that England can eventually get the job done without the need for extra-time and penalties.
