Manchester City defender out of World Cup with left ankle injury

Jordan Pickford

All England Club chiefs have adhered to a strict policy of not showing any World Cup matches during the fortnight - and they will not budge even if Gareth Southgate's side win their next two matches. So they thought it was the best tactics for them, and I think they made the right decision. That's Sweden, which will face England on Saturday.

With players such as world-class midfielder Luka Modric and a string of top-level forwards including Mario Mandzukic, Ante Rebic, Andrej Kramaric and Ivan Perisic, Zlatko Dalic's team scored at least two goals in each of their three group matches, including firing three past hapless Argentina.

There's also the weakness of one side of the bracket that could conceivably see the likes of Croatia, Sweden or England reach the final, none of which came into this tournament as likely candidates for the title.

"Yeah, we have watched nearly all of their games", Croatia forward Ivan Perisic told reporters at their training base in Sochi on Wednesday.

I think this will be tight but I fancy Didier Deschamps' side, who are starting to look like a really good team rather than a collection of very talented individuals.

"The objective is to keep growing in the World Cup and to play better every day".

Brazil v Belgium - Saturday July 7, 3am.

Brazil are unbeaten at this year's World Cup having started with a 1-1 draw against Switzerland then beat Costa Rica (2-0), Serbia (2-0) and Mexico (2-0).

The semi-finals will be played on Tuesday and Wednesday next week.

On a dramatic night in Moscow's Spartak Stadium, goalkeeper Jordan Pickford made a key save from Carlos Bacca before Eric Dier's spot-kick gave England their first-ever win on penalties at a World Cup at the fourth attempt - ending a jinx that has dogged them for so long.

The talk around this England campaign to this point is threatening to build up an unhealthy expectation to match that one. The center back was among the 21 players practicing in light rain on Saturday at England's training base just outside St.

"We knew that everything was possible", he said Wednesday. So, they're playing this World Cup as if they're out there to prove their football legacy once again. Granted, Cavani will probably miss the game with France, but they coped fine in qualifying when the Paris Saint-Germain star was absent.

If England get past workhorses Sweden, whose brand of football is not the easiest on the eye, they will face either Russian Federation or Croatia, who play each other in Sochi on Saturday.

Croatia are considered a dark horse to win the tournament but it has not been all plain sailing for the Balkan nation following a hard qualifying campaign.

France never got out of first gear in easing through the group stage, but turned on the style as Mbappe dazzled in a classic 4-3 victory over Argentina to set up the clash with Uruguay.
