Preview – World Cup: Day 21

Sweden England

Who would have thought that England would make it this far?

Having finally managed to just about break the curse of ITV and to finally win a penalty shoot-out, England now take on Sweden for a place in the semi-finals. Sweden managed to book their spot in this game with a 1-0 win over Switzerland, and England’s record against the Swedes has seen us lose a fair number of times, so England will be taking nothing for granted.

If England do manage to win, they will face the victorS in this evening’s match, where they could take on either the hosts Russia or Croatia, both of whom also got through on penalties after 1-1 draws like England.

Sweden v England is on BBC One at 14.00 (kick-off 15.00).

Russia v Croatia is on ITV at 18.30 (kick-off 19.00).
