Sweden Vs England Match Preview, Soccer Prediction, and Betting Tips
Sweden have to take some credit for how far they have come in this competition because almost nobody gave them a chance to make it this far even Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
The Swedes started their campaign with a 1-0 win over South Korea to enhance their reputation as a good defensive side. They played Germany next and despite going ahead early, they lost the game 2-1 thanks to a Toni Kross late winner. They beat Mexico 3-0 in their last group game to reach the round of 16 where they faced Switzerland. They emerged victorious by 1-0 to set up this match and it would be interesting to see how they perform here.
England are having the best competition they have had in a long time and even if they are eliminated here, this team has made the English public fall in love with their national team again. They started their campaign with a 2-1 win over Tunisia before trashing poor Panama 6-1 in a game that they were 5-0 up at halftime.
Their last group game was a dead rubber so Gareth Southgate rested most of his players and England eventually lost 1-0 to Belgium to play Colombia in their round of 16 clash. After a 1-1 draw in regular and extra time, the game headed to penalties were England ended their penalty hoodoo by winning to set up this clash.
Harry Kane has scored six goals in this World Cup already and he could find the back of the net here also.
