Zlatan Says Sweden Has ‘Big Chance’ To Win World Cup

FIFA World Cup 2018 Sweden vs Switzerland preview

The South Americans kept Portugal's Cristiano Ronaldo at bay in their 2-1 last-16 win, and that goal conceded was the only one against them so far in Russian Federation - a defensive feat only matched by Brazil, who play Belgium later on Friday. Brazil did not have any problems beating Mexico (2-0), but did lose Casemiro for the Belgium game.

"In the World Cup play-off, Italy couldn't score in 180 minutes, Germany only scored (their winner) with a free-kick at the end".

"We talked about it at half-time to see if we could solve it right away, and made some substitutions, but then France got their second goal and were able to control the game". Most recently, Belgium lost 1-0 to Argentina in the 2014 quarterfinals. The main questions following disappointing defeats in the 2014 World Cup and the 2016 European Championship centered on the team's character.

The World Cup returned with a bang as two of the four semi-finalists were confirmed.

Roberto Martinez: "They did incredible".

Playing without one of their star strikers in Edinson Cavani, who missed the match due to injury, Uruguay put up a good fight.

The second quarter-final sees Brazil take on Belgium.

Stones spoke about the Colomian team at the press conference too, saying, "I'd never seen a game like that before and how they behaved".

Trump Slams Obama For Allegedly Granting Iranians Citizenship
The story was first featured last week by reformist Iranian newspaper Etemad and was cited by the semi-official Fars News Agency . President Donald Trump has since pulled out of the carefully negotiated deal which he branded the 'worst deal ever'.

Fabian Delph has yet to return to camp after heading home for the birth of his third child after the final Group G match against Belgium last Thursday.

"Everything is open, up for grabs", he said.

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

He will be 35 by the time the next World cup comes around and knowing very well that life in the four years could change drastically, "El Pistolero" would not be short of motivation as he makes one final attempt to bury his tarnished image of the past and recreate one for the future.

France take on Uruguay in the quarter-finals of the World Cup on Friday afternoon. The victor will face Brazil or Belgium.

But France on Friday presents him with another shot at redemption - and possibly last - to establish his legacy at the World Cup.

A contender for the Golden Ball, Kylian Mbappe is showing his class on the big stage.

"Uruguay have so many assets, so many qualities", said France coach Didier Deschamps.
