Sweden will stick to their strengths against England - Granqvist

Sweden will stick to their strengths against England - Granqvist

Goals from Raphael Varane and Antoine Griezmann were enough to beat a hard-working but outclassed Uruguay side and France can look forward to a semi-final clash with Belgium or Brazil in Saint Petersburg on Tuesday. I don't think we have to worry about that at all.

"Sweden will be more or less the same as Iceland in Euro 2016 - they don't have the best footballers in the world, and none of our players would play in the first team of the biggest clubs in the world since Zlatan (Ibrahimovic) has left". There were some technical issues.

Between Mbappe's speed, power, and room for growth, his play looks like a precursor to even more great things to come in his club and worldwide careers - we could be witnessing the start of yet another generational talent.

The 1998 World Cup-winning skipper seemed particularly pleased his side had given Uruguay so few opportunities, especially from set-pieces. Out of the previous 8 encounters, France has only won once.

The 31-year-old Berg has failed to find the net so far in Russian Federation, including a miss in the 1-0 victory over Switzerland that put Sweden into the quarterfinals for the first time since the 1994 tournament.

France, the 1998 winners, started slowly in Russian Federation but have now slipped into gear, with a sharp attack led by Griezmann and teenager Kylian Mbappe buttressed by a powerful midfield marshalled by Paul Pogba and N'Golo Kante. "That is a good description of us", Andersson told reporters on Friday.

"It is true Olivier has not scored yet, but - I repeat - yet", Deschamps said.

"Of course we want to win and we're going to try to win". "Someone said something about 99 times out of 100 they would beat us?"

They have kept three clean sheets in four outings in Russian Federation but captain Andreas Granqvist will have his work cut out against Harry Kane, the leading scorer in the competition with six goals. "According to the numbers we got from the group games there will be 3500 England fans".

"The boys gave everything but by the end there was a huge difference between the teams, I admit that".

"He does many things for the team to be balanced, and it is the players around him that benefit from his presence because he attracts a lot of attention from the defenders".

Who will make to the next round? To progress, Tabarez will need to come up with a plan that excludes striker Edinson Cavani, who is set to miss out due to a calf injury.

There were also warm words for Uruguay's efforts from Griezmann, who was named man of the match. The Real Madrid midfielder received his second booking of the tournament and will be suspended for the game on Friday.

"Before the quarter-final I had six players that were already booked and now I have everyone available for the next match and that is great also".
