David Beckham and Zlatan Ibrahimovic place wager before World Cup clash

'Their strikers are defenders when it's time to defend and they can defend in their own box as well.

Sweden's all-time top scorer Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who retired from worldwide football in 2016, said the quarterfinal match between the Swedes and England involves "a lot of emotions".

"You won't find a better team - Sweden are world champions of team spirit".

"It would be easier for England to beat Brazil than to beat Sweden, in my opinion", said the Swede, England's first foreign-born coach.

"I think there are a real lot of disappointed people who have done England for years and years and their families have, quite rightly, said this is what we've been shown on television".

That hardly makes Sweden a "bogey team" for England.

Ibrahimovic scored 62 goals in 116 games for his country and a debate raged about whether or not Janne Andersson should bring him back into the squad for Russian Federation, but they seem to be doing well enough without him. We have to win tomorrow's match, which is going to be very tough.

"We might not have the best team on paper or individually, but as a team we are very high achievers and this symbolizes all of us".

"The set piece situation will be a clear factor - for the first time I think we are coming up against a country that is more or less on par with us in that respect", warned Andersson.

"They played twice against Italy and for 180 minutes Italy could not score a goal against them". There is very little to choose between the two countries historically and another tight game is expected in Samara on Saturday.

The iconic striker is no longer part of the worldwide set-up after hanging up his boots two years ago after Euro 2016. Germany struggled in the group stage and needed Toni Kroos' free-kick to save them.

Harry Kane has scored six goals at the tournament - two more than any other player before the start of the quarter-finals.

"The defence is a great strength".

"We are both very risky at set pieces".

"Both teams will have the problem of scoring". If they can keep it up, they have a good chance.
