24 million viewers watch England make World Cup Quarter Final

The Three Lions are into a World Cup quarter-final for the first time since 2006, and will face the Swedes in Samara on Saturday. I think they have the quality.

Some exhilarating clashes await us as France meet Uruguay and Brazil lock horns with Belgium in the quarterfinals of the competition.

Hosts Russia played their third group game there, but lost 3-0 to Uruguay, and England's vanquished opponents Colombia edged out Senegal there 1-0 in their final group match.

"Sweden is another team we have a poor record against". They have created their own story and made history.

Suarez was less convinced by recent claims that Griezmann was half-Uruguayan because he plays with Diego Godin and Jose Gimenez at Atletico Madrid, drinks mate tea and even turned up at the airport wearing a Uruguay shirt to greet his teammates when they qualified for Russian Federation.

"But I ask you, can we get out Belgium who is a smaller country than 40m?"

Brazil sits as +300 tournament favourites following their 2-0 shutout of Mexico as -200 chalk, while Belgium rides high following their 3-2 victory over Japan on -275 odds.

No South American side have won on European soil since a Pele-inspired Brazil 60 years ago, but in a World Cup of shocks and surprises, nothing can be taken for granted. Uruguay's success has been built on a solid defence led by Atletico Madrid pair Jose Gimenez and Diego Godin, with the old-fashioned strike partnership of Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani doing the damage at the other end with five goals between them.

The Paris Saint-Germain youngster scored twice and his pace and skill also forced a penalty from which France scored their first goal.
