England trained in Repino on Friday morning before flying to Samara in preparation for their quarter-final meeting with Sweden.

Ibrahimovic told Sweden's Expressen newspaper yesterday that "now it's not just about how good you are", adding that England can be "tough and hard to score against".

Andreas Granqvist vowed that Sweden will not alter the way they play heading into their World Cup quarter-final with England.

"We are there to push them". They believe, and they thought they could do it. "They have seen our game, they have seen our group stage and how we play and I think they have big respect for us". All the Swedes in the world are proud of our national team and they will continue to be proud, regardless of how it goes.




Ibrahimovic's advice for Sweden is simple - more of the same.

Speaking in the build up to the game, Granqvist, who has scored two penalties in Russian Federation this summer, believes that their efficient style will serve them well as it has done in the last matches.

With the nation preparing for a Saturday afternoon they will hope to remember for a long time, Three Lions skipper Harry Kane wants to keep the country united. It's a quarterfinal, and a lot of emotions come into the game. "Normally the other team has better players on paper and we let them have the ball in the places we want them to have the ball", he explained.

Maradona said sorry after being rebuked by soccer's governing body following comments he made after England's hard-fought penalty shootout win in Tuesday's game.
