England and Sweden qualify for quarter finals of World Cup


Sweden defeated Switzerland 1 nil, in a strangely compelling but untidy tie in St Petersburg.

Emil Forsberg struck the decisive blow midway through the second half with a shot that deflected off the luckless Manuel Akanji and left Yann Sommer stranded in the Swiss goal.

Meanwhile, England won a World Cup penalty shootout for the first time on a night of high drama in Moscow, overcoming Colombia.

Amid a fevered atmosphere inside Spartak Stadium, Eric Dier scored the winning kick after Jordan Pickford's brilliant save from Carlos Bacca.
England will now play Sweden in the quarter-finals of the World Cup.
