    Yeah it was a sudden stop in the middle of his pre-game analysis. What happened? Did a snake ate him? Did he got hit by a truck? Did his cake burn in the owen? So many questions, so few answers!

    The Swiss have some good shooters from afar, which I think can cause Sweden some issues.

    Sweden has good defense, but I think Switzerland can penetrate.

    Imagine if Sweden would pull off a miracle and win the whole thing, Zlatan's ego would never recover.

    I was 3 years old at the World Cup 94 so i have literally no memories from that tournament. Only been told about how crazy it was and seen the highlights. Would really love to experience something like that myself. So i will be able to tell my kids about that famous World Cup 18.

    All the signs are already there. I have heard that 94 was an extremely hot summer in Sweden and now we have the best summer in many years aswell. And just like 94 we won't play against a "top team" until the semis. Not afraid at all to go up against England in a quarterfinal. We know how to play against them and almost never loses.

    But first we take on the clockworkers!

    Strange to me that Sweden are not favourites (due to the suspensions). Will have a bet on this one.

    You do realize that Xhaka, Shaqiri and Lichtsteiner never got suspended?

    You're right. Forgot he was one of them who picked up a second yellow.

    I do expect the Swiss to field 11 players yes, but let us not make Shaqiri sound like he is Son.

    And if Xhaka is the other player to worry about I see good value in Sweden. That is what betting is about in the end anyway.

    Its a coin flip game. Nobody truly world class on either team. I'm taking Sweden, but I could be wrong

    This game’s gonna be brilliant.

    I think part of the difference is the 94 team actually had some interesting/quality players/characters, like Brolin. Brolin has been an overweight irrelevant bum for forever now, but that summer he was 24 and a top midfielder/creative player in the Serie A.

    We have qualityplayers in this team to. They just havent showed it yet. Forsberg can do so much better than this. Imagine a Forsberg who steps up and we have a very dangerous team.

    And we have Super-Granen!

    Who's Shaqiri? Don't think he can be compared with Son. Son's just a pure goal scorer.

    Two of my favorites countries. Who ever wins,I'll be happy. Switzerland would be much tougher for Croatia/England/Colombia though.
