Russia & Croatia Getting Ready For Quarter-Finals

A World Cup that has delivered its fair share of shocks and upsets continued that trend in the Round of 16, particularly the ousting of favourites Spain by outliers Russian Federation. And even in defeat, teams like Japan and Denmark won hearts and impressed with their fight.

"Closer to the match against Croatia, Cherchesov will tell us how to play".

This combination of two files pictures shows Argentina´s forward Lionel Messi (L) in Kazan on June 30, 2018 and Portugal´s forward Cristiano Ronaldo in Sochi on June 30, 2018.

Spain followed Argentina and Portugal out of the tournament on Sunday when they were beaten on penalties by hosts Russian Federation.

They will set up to frustrate Croatia, as they did against Spain.

Brazil went 2-0-1 in the group stage and most recently dispatched Mexico 2-0 in the knockout round.

Sweden reached the World Cup last eight for the first time since finishing third in 1994 after a scrappy 1-0 victory over Switzerland on Tuesday.

Among those still standing, Brazil and France represent the early favourites while Sweden and Russian Federation have advanced further than many would have expected, and all will be eyeing a run to the final after the unpredictable way this tournament has unfolded.

And for England, three words sum up their entire experience at the World Cup. Let's take a quick preview at the four quarterfinal matches scheduled for Friday and Saturday while we glance at the corresponding odds to win it all.

Chester chairman David Harrington-Wright was quoted by the Chester Chronicle as saying: "When the fixture was first discussed there was a possible clash with an England quarter-final in the World Cup".

England will now face Sweden in the Quarter Final game this Saturday from 3PM on BBC One.

Ederson will continue on the Brazil bench as the second-choice behind Roma's Alisson, while Danilo will also be an option in reserve.
