Andersson does not think about victory at World Cup

In the remaining two-Quarter Finals of the FIFA World Cup today, England will take on Sweden while hosts Russian Federation meet Croatia in Sochi.

Millions of football fans will be gripped to their televisions on Saturday as England look to secure their first World Cup semi-final in 28 years.

"In the 1970's, growing up with Swedish TV, we watched English football and they only showed one game a week", he said. That, though, could well take longer than extra-time and penalties... not to mention being far more stressful.

The coach added, "We have played a number of big games this year and we have the same procedure for every game; we have good procedures in place and good habits". Whoever can handle that best has an advantage.

Eriksson added that Janne Andersson's side - who eliminated Holland and Italy in qualifying and topped the group which defending champions Germany finished bottom of - would be hard to break down despite the threat of tournament top-scorer Harry Kane.

They have kept three clean sheets in four outings in Russian Federation but captain Andreas Granqvist will have his work cut out against Harry Kane, the leading scorer in the competition with six goals.

Granqvist's wife, Sofie, gave birth to the couple's second child, although Granqvist was not there for the happy event after she had told him to stay in Russian Federation to help Sweden's World Cup prospects.

"We've changed things on the penalties now, so it might be time we can change the scores against them".

"Yes, I think Sweden can become world champion, just like I said before the World Cup started".

"When Sweden wins, let´s see what David Beckham tells me".

"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. We have to win tomorrow's match, which is going to be very tough. "It's much, much worse for England to lose this match than for Sweden", he said. Again upsetting the odds, Sweden edged out Italy 1-0 over the two-legged play-off to secure their place in Russian Federation.
