England will take on Sweden to kick-start their 2018 FIFA World Cup quarter-final campaign on 7th July 2018 at the Samara Arena, Samara (Russia). Sweden has scripted a fairytale in their qualification campaign to make it to the FIFA World Cup for the first time in their history. Messi-led England won’t have an easy task at hand as Sweden have proven their worth against the big sides in UEFA Euro 2016. The fact that England has Nigeria too in their group will haunt them even more and make a win against Sweden necessary. Their disastrous record against Nigeria in the recent past makes it ominous for them to take all three points against Sweden.
While the local fans will throng the Kazan Stadium to get a glimpse of world’s most fabulous footballer, football fans across the globe would be eager to see Sweden continue their dream run. All eyes will remain bolted on the talismanic Lionel Messi, but a few other names will also be hoping to stamp their name in England’s history. Paulo Dybala has been the latest Argentine sensation, and he will look to end England’s World Cup jinx. On the other hand, Gylfi Sigurdsson and co will remain firm to keep the Argentines at bay. To ensure you don’t miss out a single bit of this riveting encounter, we’ve covered up everything you need to know about the game well before time.
