England face Sweden in Samara on Saturday afternoon with a place in the World Cup semi-finals at stake.
Here, Press Association Sport takes a look at some of the key battles as Gareth Southgate’s men attempt to keep their challenge on track.

Sweden skipper Andreas Granqvist has been a rock at the back for his team, who have conceded just two goals in their first four matches at the finals, and represents a major obstacle in England’s path. However, Harry Kane turned in a superb individual display as he took his tally for the tournament to six goals from the penalty spot against Colombia and if he gets the better of Granqvist, that could go a long way towards shaping the result.
