Despite looking the easier clash on paper, Eriksson insists his countrymen will prove a stiff test for England.

"During my time with England we met them four times". Spain were knocked out on penalties by Russia, Cristiano Ronaldo could not drag Portugal past Uruguay and Lionel Messi and Argentina came unstuck once more on the grandest stage of them all.

He is 6ft 5, powerful and got an eye for goal, something he demonstrated in Colombia's World Cup group game's where he scored two headers to send his team into a last 16 tie against England.

The Leicester City striker was introduced to the match in the 88th minute in an attempt to find a winning goal before the end of regular time. "Their running, their commitment, their physical work is incredible".

England: Freed from the curse of the penalty shootout after they beat Colombia from the spot, England will be favorites to reach a first World Cup semi-final since 1990. Is it finally okay to like England?

Meanwhile, Jeremy Corbyn wants the whole United Kingdom to get a day off if England win the World Cup in Russian Federation.

Jordan Pickford made a stunning save deep into added time to deny Mateus Uribe's speculative long-range drive, but from the resulting corner Yerry Mina got above Harry Maguire to head home and draw the South Americans level at 1-1.


"It will be very tight".

However, he declined to say how the Labour leader would respond if invited to see England play in the final.

If England think they will have an easy match on Saturday that is a big mistake. "Not at all", he said.

"Many teams have tried to break down Sweden". Germany struggled in the group stage and needed Toni Kroos's free-kick to save them.

In midfield, France's Paul Pogba and Uruguay's Lucas Torreira were picked for their dominant displays in the centre of the park in the last 16, while Sweden's Emil Forsberg completes the trio.

"The defence is a great strength, especially from set-pieces".

One of only two teams to win all four games so far, Uruguay boast one of the meanest defenses in Russian Federation marshaled by talismanic captain Diego Godin, and a lethal strikeforce in Edinson Cavani and Luis Suarez. He is widely seen as the team's best player ever.
