    Just worried about Croatia and England. Colombia has a history of losing to lowly ranked FIFA teams.

    Sweden qualified before the Netherlands in the qualifications and then beat Italy in the playoffs. Now they won their group over Germany. I think they will beat Switzerland and will not be afraid if they meet England in the next match ( better if they meet Colombia though).
    Now the Suisse will be a very tough game and I think the game itself will probably go to penalties.

    They might beat Switzerland, but I don't think they have a chance against Kane and his English team.

    This team sweden generation is average but have good coach and team spirit.

    but if we take a look at the generation before this one we had Zlatan, Ljungberg, Henrik Larsson, Christian Wilhemsson, Anders Svensson, Källström, Mellberg, Erik Edman, Isaksson.....lots of actual good players.

    And the 90s team we had was really good with players such as Martin Dahlin, Kenneth Andersson, Klaes Ingesson, Tomas Brolin, Jonas Thern, Stefan Schwartz, Roland Nilsson, Joachim Björklund, Patrik Andersson, Anders Limpar, Jesper Blomqvist...

    England has a star; Sweden doesn't. Sweden's more of a defensive team than offensive.

    England always choke in the world cups.

    Sweden is the vegas of hockey. A great team.

    I don’t know, Maybe the amount of Swedes/Swiss on the forum is larger than the amount of english and colombian posters combined..?

    Then you haven't watched many england vs sweden games. England is the favorites sure but to say they haven't got a chance is kinda clueless.

    Also to assume england will win against Columbia is a bit foolish considering how the results have been so far in the tournament.

    It's Colombia, but true; I haven't watched many England games. I'm only predicting, based on my interest.

    I'm amused at how many people are completely discounting Colombia and assuming England will win. It's also puzzling that there's so much discussion about England in this thread.

    Djourou plays. The Swedes better watch out for his skills with the ball:

    Sweden has never ever had a hard time with England. It's usually a draw between them, no matter which year they meet.

    I'm expecting a boring game here as long as neither team scores. Neither team wants to carry the game.

    I will never forget the 4-2 during the opening of our new stadium, when Zlatan scored four goals, one of them being that goal.
