Verdict:  Draw

On Saturday afternoon, Sweden and England clash in the quarter-finals of World Cup 2018. Neither has made the last four of a World Cup in recent history, so both will see this as a big opportunity to move into the latter stages of the competition.


Sweden have been one of the surprise-packages of World Cup 2018. The Scandinavians needed a play-off against Italy to qualify for the finals. However, Janne Andersson’s side has won three of their four games in Russia. In the last-16 they recorded a 1-0 win over Switzerland courtesy of a goal from Emil Forsberg.

There are few things that satisfy 90% of football fans but seeing big teams fall in international tournaments in favour of unfancied nations certainly falls into that category. As we continue on through the Round of 16, which has already given us a phenomenal selection of games, it’ll be interesting to see how some of these countries navigate their way through the knockouts. One game, in particular, that intrigues us is the upcoming showdown between Sweden and Switzerland.

On Wednesday afternoon, Mexico and Sweden go head-to-head in Group F of the World Cup, as both teams attempt to advance to the knockout stages of the competition. The group is evenly balanced, and this game could be the key to deciding who qualifies for the last 16 of the competition.


Mexico have impressed at World Cup 2018, beating Germany and South Korea. However, despite the two victories, El Tri have still not sealed their position in the knockout stages of the competition.

Prediction: Germany win

Best odds: 8/15

Bookmakers: Bet365, Ladbrokes and Coral

Germany take on Sweden on Saturday evening in group F’s second round, after contrasting results in their respective openers.


The 2014 World Cup winners ended up thoroughly disappointed as they opened their title-defending campaign with a shocking defeat to Mexico. Not many believed it could happen beforehand, but anyone who has seen the game knows it was no coincidence. The Mexicans took advantage of any crack in Germany’s setup they could find to hit them hard with their fast and direct play with Hirving Lozano settling the game after 35 minutes.

While we may only just be approaching June, it won’t be long until Arsenal, alongside every other top-flight team, are back in pre-season training. By the time that happens, it’s a fair assumption to say that their squad will probably look a little bit different. Unai Emery is already starting to make his mark at the Emirates, and the exciting thing is that this is only the beginning of what will hopefully be a long and exhilarating journey.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has revealed on-loan midfielder Kim Kallstrom could feature in Arsenal’s FA Cup quarter-final clash against Everton, after the Swedish international is said to be ‘close to being fit’.

Kallstrom, 31, joined Arsenal from Spartak Moscow on loan on deadline day at the end of January, but hasn’t featured as he was signed with an injury that was to keep him out for two months.

Despite knowing about the injury, the club didn’t have any other targets lined up, so they decided to sign him as they perceived him to be useful for when the fixtures pile up around this time of the season.

Arsenal midfielder Kim Kallstrom, currently on loan from Spartak Moscow is unavailable for selection, after a scan during his medical revealed he has a back problem which is in need of being addressed. However, manager Arsene Wenger still okayed the deal for him to sign for the Gunners, and now they have another crocked midfielder to add to the list.

Don’t panic! Arsenal are sending Jack Wilshere to Sweden for medical attention. Arsene Wenger is desperate to get the talented youngster back and fully fit for the start of next season. Wilshere, voted Arsenal’s player of the season last year, has failed to feature this season and he would be like a new signing if we could get him back.

Arsenal have released a statement which tells us, “Jack Wilshere is continuing to recover very well from the injury to his right ankle. However, his rehabilitation has seen a long-standing slight issue with his Patella tendon in his left knee flare up.
