    I think this means Sweden, Switzerland, England, or Senegal/Colombia will be in the SF. That's how I think the groups will finish anyway.

    Which is totally crazy to me.

    The rest of us will just be bored. Sucks, this is day I plan on lazing around hungover and a decent match would have fit my plans perfectly.

    I can't tell you who wins this one, but I can tell you for sure that we all lose. This has penalties written all over it.

    Sweden the heavy favorite. They're peaking at the right moment and play such a disciplined game, it will be incredibly difficult to find a weak spot. Switzerland loses half of their defense due to the 2nd yellow cards to Lichsteiner / Schär, too. Sweden takes this one.

    Belgium, maybe. England vs any of the possible matchups is much less of a sure thing.

    Well, Lang replaces Lichtsteiner, Elvedi replaces Schär.

    2-1 for us! This is not hockey!;)

    Yeah, cant be great losing both mid defenders at the same time, Sweden got lucky there. How is thier replacements?

    I put a homer vote on Sweden, but I assume its a 50/50 affair.

    Sebastian Larsson will miss the game. Hope Hiljemark will replace him and not Svensson.

    Switzerland, because Sweden took Korea's chances of making the Round of 16.

    Praying that they can provide a good performance. I hope Djourou won't be in the lineup. All in all, defense will be a question mark.

    If Elvedi is in, I am feeling much more positive. Please no Djourou: it's all I ask.

    Disagree. Switzerland is the favorite and the betting sites agree with me and they don't try to jinx, anti-jinx, or have any bias.

    Obviously an absolute banger that will draw massive crowds to public viewings everywhere.

    The only exception being literally every place outside of Sweden and Switzerland

    I don’t see Switzerland being a match for Sweden’s defence. Karlsson Hedman OEL is just ridiculously good. But the Swiss always have shown the ability to pull off an upset.

    wait wtf is this

    The only loser in this game is Ibrahimovic.
