Stones hits back at Mourinho, says England were 'clever' against Colombia

England advanced to the quarterfinals in a penalty shootout after a 1-1 draw in Moscow.

As Argentina's coach in 2009, a Federation Internationale de Football Association suspension for a tirade aimed at reporters after a World Cup qualifying game barred Maradona from attending the 2010 finals draw in Cape Town, South Africa. Larsson, who had spells with Celtic and Manchester United during a long domestic career, scored 37 goals from his 106 games for Sweden.

"He's communicative, takes a lot of responsibility and has a fighting spirit I like", Andersson said when making the announcement.

"I'm sure that an overwhelming majority of people who came will leave with the best feelings and memories of our country and will come again many times".

The Three Lions, who finished second in their group, needed penalties to overcome a resilient Colombia on Tuesday.

Sweden know how to get the job done, it's as simple as that.

Uruguay, however, will be much harder opposition to break down having only conceded one goal so far and they could frustrate France if they decide to shut shop as Denmark did but with the likes of Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani leading the attack, playing for spot kicks would be very surprising.

They beat South Korea 1-0 in their opening game, before slipping to a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Jochim Low's side moments from the end.

In case you thought England's dramatic penalty win against Colombia couldn't get any better, it just has, as Argentina legend Diego Maradona is absolutely furious about it.

Beckham and Ibrahimovic are friendly with one another from the brief time they were teammates at French powerhouse, Paris Saint Germain.

Apologising for his remarks, the World Cup victor from 1986 conceded that the job of the referees is "not easy" - a detail he, more infamously than any perhaps, is well aware of.

"They played twice against Italy and for 180 minutes Italy could not score a goal against them". Andersson's squad regrouped, and impressively defeated Mexico 3-0 in their final group match to progress to the knockout stage.

FIFA's patience with Diego Maradona's World Cup antics finally ran out on Wednesday.

"This is the sort of game you dream about as a little boy and we can enjoy it from the first second", said Belgium coach Roberto Martinez. But he has stood up when it has mattered most and has been Sweden's most influential player.

Sweden, therefore, have both the brand of football and the history to upset Gareth Southgate's men on Saturday afternoon. He symbolises everything good about his nation's football team.
