England fans receive smartwatch health warnings during World Cup match

Sweden's player warm up during a training session at Saint Petersburg stadium

England were pegged back 1-1 late on in Moscow, before coming out on top on penalties to set up Saturday's meeting with Sweden for a place in the final four.

I am still backing Brazil to win this World Cup, but the French would give them a serious test.

Meanwhile, Jeremy Corbyn wants the whole United Kingdom to get a day off if England win the World Cup in Russian Federation.

"I said many times that no country under 40 million people has won the World Cup since 1954, since after the Second World War".

Cherenkov is not well known outside Russia, but remains a hero to Spartak fans after winning three Soviet titles and one Russian title with the club.

If World Cup history is anything to go by, this one won't be a classic - France and Uruguay have shared two 0-0 draws at the tournament, in 2002 and 2010.

Russia: The hosts have delighted their public by surpassing all expectations to make it to the last eight thanks to a stunning penalty shootout elimination of 2010 winners Spain.

Messi only scored once in Russian Federation and is still yet to net in the knockout stages of a World Cup . Brazil played host to the 2014 tournament with Portugal suffering a humiliating group stage elimination.

Mexico coach Juan Carlos Osorio said the stoppages caused by Neymar's antics stalled his team during their 2-0 last-16 loss to Brazil, claiming the Paris Saint-Germain forward's reaction to Miguel Layun stepping on his leg was a "shame for football". However, those numbers don't bother Roberto Martinez.

WHY FRANCE WINS: We've yet to see the best of a French side that has everything trending in its favour. And it's one lyric in particular that seems to confuse them.

Earlier on Friday, France and Uruguay open the quarter finals when the face each other in Nizhny Novgorod at 10 a.m. ET.

ESPN's Charlie Gibson queries fans about England's World Cup chances while colleague Chris Mendes takes in all the action at Flat Iron Square in London. With the electric Kylian Mbappe upfront, few would bet against Les Blues reaching their first final since 2006.

WHY CROATIA WINS: The Croatians are just as balanced as Brazil or England - and might have the best box-to-box midfield tandem in Luka Modric and Ivan Rakitic. What we know is this Russian side is more than willing to sit back in two blocks of five and grind for 90 minutes or more.

Spain followed Argentina and Portugal out of the tournament on Sunday when they were beaten on penalties by hosts Russian Federation.
