Sweden are easy to analyse, difficult to beat - Coach

England Iceland Euro 2016

The South Americans are seeking to qualify for their second World Cup semi-final in three tournaments - they reached the last four in South Africa but lost 3-2 to the Netherlands.

"I didn't celebrate that goal because when I started as a professional footballer I was supported by a Uruguayan, who showed me the good and the bad of football", he told reporters.

"I don't have a preference", said Deschamps. There were some technical issues. "Whether or not you take us seriously and how they perceive it, that's very hard for me to say".

The 1998 World Cup-winning skipper seemed particularly pleased his side had given Uruguay so few opportunities, especially from set-pieces.

This year, we've also been blessed to witness some "big" teams break respective hoodoos, for instance, England won a penalty shootout in the tournament for the first time in their history.

The 27-year-old added to Raphael Varane's first-half header with a second just after the hour mark, effectively killing the contest, although the goal owed as much to a howler from goalkeeper Fernando Muslera as it did the quality of Griezmann's strike.

France, the 1998 winners, started slowly in Russian Federation but have now slipped into gear, with a sharp attack led by Griezmann and teenager Kylian Mbappe buttressed by a powerful midfield marshalled by Paul Pogba and N'Golo Kante. "It's going to be a very tough match against him but we will do our best to stop him", said Granqvist, who will be partnered by Victor Lindelof in central defence.

"I wanted to reject the ball but it hit just my left hand and beat it", Mulera said. So, we have players who don't have the same profile but we want the team to be recognisable.

Oscar Tabarez, his opposite number, was magnanimous and matter-of-fact in defeat. Every Swedish person in the world is proud, and we will be proud however it goes in the coming games. That's a detail that makes a huge impact on a game like a quarter-final.

"The boys gave everything but by the end there was a huge difference between the teams, I admit that".

"I want to denounce in front of Federation Internationale de Football Association and with the support of all my Colombian compatriots, the match of the round of 16 between Colombia and England", reads a translation of the petition, which was started by Colombian law student Juan Diego García Muñoz.

Meanwhile, Ibrahimovic said the quarterfinal would be decided by "the team that best can handle their feelings will have an advantage". France will miss Blaise Matuidi due to a suspension, while Uruguay's star forward Edinson Cavani is still a major doubt as he suffers from a calf injury.
