Brazil and France target World Cup semi-finals

Gary Lineker England Cameroon World Cup 1990

There were some technical issues.

Sweden "had to rebuild from scratch", Andersson said, and that meant constructing a team no longer focused on one player. "Luckily there is a World Cup every four years and this effort continues". He glanced his header into the top left corner of the goal.

Cavani's absence would be a huge blow to Uruguay as he forms a fearsome partnership with Barcelona's Luis Suarez - between them‚ they have scored five of Uruguay's seven goals in Russian Federation.

"Normally the other teams have better players on paper".

When asked if he was concerned that Olivier Giroud had still not scored at Russian Federation 2018, Deschamps replied "yet", suggesting the Chelsea striker's position in the starting line-up is safe.

"We need to be very strong in the penalty box and try and make sure they don't get the service they need".

Oscar Tabarez, his opposite number, was magnanimous and matter-of-fact in defeat. "Someone said something about 99 times out of 100 they would beat us?"

"We did already before the previous match, if we needed them we have our approach and ideas of who is going to take penalties".

Dier went on to net the winning spot-kick in the penalty shootout which sent England through to the quarter-finals after the tie finished 1-1 after extra-time. Not only has Belgium not won any of its games against South American teams in the knockout stages, it hasn't even managed to score a goal.

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

France then doubled their advantage after half-time when Fernando Muslera completely misjudged a speculative shot from Griezmann.

Ibrahimovic, who has 10 goals this season for the Galaxy, has spent his career among some of Europe's greatest clubs, including Ajax, Juventus, Inter Milan, Barcelona, AC Milan, Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United for the past two seasons.

There were also warm words for Uruguay's efforts from Griezmann, who was named man of the match.

The petition signed by more than 280,000 people in Colombia calling for the last 16 game with England to be replayed has been dismissed by Mick McCarthy.

The 27-year-old later spoke of his "love" for "Uruguayans and Uruguayan culture" formed by close relationships with club team-mate Diego Godin and former Real Sociedad mentor Martin Lasarte.
