A Parallel Universe Where Sam Allardyce Is Manager For England v Sweden

Thibaut Courtois Dedryck Boyata Vincent Kompany and Michy Batshuayi of Belgium celebrate victory following the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia group G match between England and Belgium

Paul Merson insists that Tottenham Hotspur ace Dele Alli must be dropped by England in their World Cup quarter-final on Saturday.

Southgate also said he would not be able to trust his players' word to see if they're really fit, as everyone wants to play in games of such magnitude.

"It's not about England and Colombia, it's nearly every match, they are creating such a hard job for the referees in every match".

Southgate (47) has built on that impressive work in Russian Federation where he has guided England to a quarter-final tie against Sweden in Samara tomorrow. "There's a real buzz around the team at the moment, and I'm sure most fans will do their utmost to be in Samara on Saturday".

"So you've got to have a racehorse trainer's eye at times to sort that out".

"I think these young players are showing that".

The report claimed England's provisional list of penalty takes included Henderson, Harry Kane, Ashley Young, Kieran Trippier, Jamie Vardy and Jesse Lingard.

England have set-pieces, Sweden will make some chances, but the game will come down to luck - the team that makes the most of their luck will win.

England vs. Belgium - Football Match Report
For Southgate, it was as much about ensuring players like Kane did not pick up injuries in a game that wasn't essential. Finishing second, England take on Colombia, with a potential quarterfinal against the victor of Sweden vs.

"Obviously you want an environment where you are going to feel safe and not sort-of anxious about getting beaten up and into trouble", he said.

"We knew we had this game, even if it had to go to penalties, we knew we were capable of winning". But then we are very much one game at a time.

The Tottenham midfielder, along with goalkeeper Jordan Pickford, was the penalty hero on Tuesday, with Dier netting the decisive kick to send Gareth Southgate's side through at the expense of Colombia following a 1-1 draw in Moscow.

After a cagey 30 minutes of extra time, England fans would have been fearing the worst as the match headed for penalties. "It looks like it would have been a good one".

England won 1-0, their first victory over the Swedes in over 43 years.

"We said before we came we wanted to make the nation proud, a way of us behaving to do that, but we needed to win some football matches as well".

"I've got a feeling (England) will go through comfortably".
