FT: England 2-0 Sweden


We’re into 5 minutes of added-time, with an abysmal Ludwig Augustinsson free-kick from the edge of the box pretty much summing up Sweden’s performance today.

Sweden vs England live streaming & watch: Match preview

The Samara Arena hosts a colossal clash between England and Sweden.

The quarterfinals will be honoured with two nations licking their lips at their prospects of success.

The winner of the match will face the winner between Croatia and Russia in the semi finals. This is a clash considered very winnable for all teams involved. This is an opportunity for several teams to make history and achieve a record place finish in the tournament.

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity that teams need to take advantage of.


England arrive on the back of redemption and relief. The nation viewed as the ultimate bottlers, famed for the poorest penalty record in the world.

England have lost 6 out of their last 7 penalty shootouts in major tournaments. An abysmal record for a powerhouse in international football.

When the match against Colombia went to penalties, you could hear a collective sigh of the England nation. Faces dropped as they muttered under their breath “here we go again…” the lack of confidence in the nation’s hope had been battered out by previous disappointment. But now the camp and country is brimming with confidence and self-belief after ending a 22 year curse.

England will come into the game wary of a Sweden side proven to be resilient and tough to beat. The Scandinavian outfit eliminated Italy from the play-offs and topped a group containing Mexico and Germany. They will be no pushover.


Sweden will be even more regimented than Colombia. “I have enormous respect. [Sweden] are often underestimated. But they have a clear plan, and it will be very difficult,” England manager Gareth Southgate explained to the media.

England have a poor record against Scandinavian sides with just 3 wins in 13. But after their first penalty record victory in the World Cup, they will believe anything is possible.

The Blågult arrive steel form. The side have grounded out victories with their impregnable defence and threatening attack. The 1-0 victory against Switzerland demonstrated the personality of this Sweden side. They can hurt you going forward but remain rock solid at the back. The nation will believe with effective football rather than dominating football anything is possible.

Sweden will look to their winning tactical formation in hope of victory. Arranged in a 4-2-2-2 the Scandinavians are defensively rigid and suffocate the spaces in the game, leading to an association with boring football. “Our play fits the players we have. I hope that we can develop towards playing a more attractive brand of football but we are not there yet”, head coach Janne Andersson explained.


Sweden will look to replicate their success against Switzerland which saw them remain compact and narrow. They let Switzerland have majority of the ball and forced them down the alleys where the tall side felt comfortable of clearing any crosses into the box.

They would look to pick off the ball and transition with speed where they team began to look alive. The effective football rather than dominating football was the victor.

You can expect a similar stylised match with England but lets see who essentially becomes the most effective.
