Tabarez coy on Cavani fitness for France World Cup clash

It's football not politics: Blatter criticises Swedish government for World Cup boycott Tabarez coy on Cavani fitness for France World Cup clash

"Lloris had a great save", France coach Didier Deschamps said. "We can pass that down the generations - beating Brazil".

Janne Andersson's side have had less possession than their opponents in three out of their four matches at the World Cup so far, relying on their strong defensive structure to keep teams at bay.

Tite threw on Liverpool forward Roberto Firmino for Willian at half-time and the famous yellow shirts poured forward in increasing desperation, only to find an impenetrable wall at the back.

"We have people who know how to handle the big games and try to take ensure things go as we want".

Neymar had a chance to equalise late in injury time but Thibaut Courtois produced a magnificent save to tip over the goalbound curling effort.

"It's a heavy, bitter feeling".

"We're a completely different squad and so are they, so anything that went before is not relevant", he said.

Sweden are attempting to reach a first semi-final since 1994, when they were beaten 1-0 in the last four by eventual champions Brazil.

Asked if the Paris Saint-Germain striker would start in the eagerly anticipated last-eight clash in Niznhy Novgorod‚ Tabarez said: "I think we have given enough information about Cavani's injury".


Antoine Griezmann extended France's lead in their quarterfinal in Nizhny Novgorod in the 61st minute with a long-range shot that Muslera got both hands to but deflected into his own net.

Deschamps said his side had "again raised our level" after the 4-3 win over Argentina in the last 16.

'We are asking Federation Internationale de Football Association to review these two decisions in order to set a precedent for a clean game where fair, legal play prevails and is a guarantee for both teams'. "He's a very important player for us and has been working very hard to recover".

"Many things must be right to beat a team like England". "That hasn't been good for us".

"We want to enjoy our game".

Even if England do reach the final, British political leaders and royals will not attend the match in Russian Federation.

Northern Ireland manager Michael O'Neill may have celebrated his 49th birthday yesterday, but he brought little cheer to the long suffering England faithful by predicting a World Cup Final loss for Gareth Southgate's men.

FIFA President Gianni Infantino told President Vladimir Putin that everyone had fallen "in love with Russia" during the World Cup, during a meeting Friday at the Kremlin.
