The last of the World Cup quarterfinalists will book their places on Tuesday, with 4 more teams hoping to stay in the tournament long enough to be eventually beaten by Russia. Our Big Rom booked his ticket as Belgium beat Japan in a thrilling come from behind victory yesterday, while Fred’s Brazil (although he’s seen as much as action on the field as we have) did enough to get past Mexico.

Manchester United points of interest

In the earlier quarterfinal that no one wanted or expected, Victor Lindelöf is likely to get another start in the center of Sweden’s backline. Sweden will be slight favorites to get the win, but Lindelöf will still have his fair share of defending to do.

In the later game, England fans are already licking their lips at what is - on paper - a very manageable path to the final. Our old friend Falcao and Colombia will be no easy test however. Jesse Lingard and Ashley Young are both expected to start the match for the Three Lions, but it’s not clear if Marcus Rashford did enough in the last outing to oust Raheem Sterling for a starting spot in the attack. Phil Jones will hopefully be unable to do any damage from the bench. IT’S COMING HOME.

This will be our live thread for the day, so stick around and chat with us.
