Andreas Granqvist says Sweden will not change style for England quarter-final

Image


maxbet Sweden captain Andreas Granqvist has promised his side will not change their style when they take on England in the quarter-finals of the World Cup on Sunday.They have had less ball possession than all but one of their opponents in the tournament so far, and only had 33 per cent during their wins over Mexico and Switzerland.

maxbet The approach has served Sweden well, as they have conceded in just one of their four matches and reached the last eight for the first time in 24 years.Ahead of their game against England in Samara, Granqvist said: "Normally the other teams have better players on paper. We let them have the ball in the places we want them to have the ball.

"If you look at the games we have played, of course the opponents have more ball possession, but we have created more chances. This is how we play, this is what we need to do."This is our strength and we need to show our quality against other strong teams. This is the way for us to have success and we're going to continue this way."

Meanwhile, it has been announced that Bjorn Kuipers of the Netherlands will referee Saturday's match.The 45-year-old took charge of England's 2-1 defeat to Italy in their opening match of the 2014 World Cup. maxbet

Rangers make £3m bid for Millwall defender Jake Cooper

sbo222 Rangers have made a £3m bid for Millwall defender Jake Cooper, Sky sources understand.It is understood Millwall are keen to keep hold of the 23-year-old and remain unmoved in their stance despite Rangers' offer.

Umar Sadiq became Rangers' ninth signing of the summer on Tuesday when he joined on a season-long loan from Roma.

Despite already signing defenders Jon Flanagan, Connor Goldson and Nikola Katic, Rangers manager Steven Gerrard remains keen to further bolster his defensive options with Bruno Alves poised to join Parma.

Cooper made 42 appearances for Millwall last season and was part of the joint-third strongest defence in the Sky Bet Championship. sbo222

He has two years remaining on his current contract at The Den.Cooper initially joined Millwall on loan from Reading in January 2017 and helped the club win promotion to the Championship via the League One play-offs.

The 23-year-old made the move permanent last summer and was an instrumental figure last season as Millwall finished in eighth place - their highest league standing since 2002.Cooper has previously represented England at U18, U19 and U20 level. sbo222

Jose Mourinho confirms Nemanja Matic will miss the start of the season after surgery

Image


ส โบ เบ ท Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has revealed midfielder Nemanja Matic will miss the start of the Premier League season following his side's 4-1 thrashing at the hands of Liverpool.Serbia international Matic has played no part in United's International Champions Cup campaign in the United States since returning from World Cup duty, and Mourinho has now revealed he has undergone surgery.

Manchester United 1-4 Liverpool - report
"Matic arrived from the World Cup, holiday, direct to surgery because something happened in the World Cup," Mourinho told the club's official website."He has had surgery. He is out for the start of the season. He came from the World Cup with the injury and the time he had to rest on holiday was not enough to resolve the problem.

"I don't know how long he will be out for."
In Matic's absence in Michigan on Saturday night, Liverpool ran riot against United with Sadio Mane, Daniel Sturridge, Sheyi Ojo and Xherdan Shaqiri all on target in a convincing victory. Andreas Pereira cancelled out Mane's opening penalty with a fine free-kick to leave the sides level at the break, but United faltered in the second half.

With some players still away after the World Cup and Anthony Martial at home after the birth of his child, Mourinho felt his side - ส โบ เบ ท who next face Real Madrid on Tuesday evening - gained little from the encounter."We play Real Madrid and we have no more players than what we have," he told MUTV. "Matic arrived from the World Cup, holiday, direct to surgery because something happened in the World Cup. Antonio Valencia comes from holiday - I think too much holiday for him. His condition was not good when he was back, then injury and also go back.

"Anthony Martial has the baby and after the baby is born - beautiful baby, full of health, thank God - he should be here and he is not here. So we have Alexis (Sanchez) and (Juan) Mata who play every minute of every match and now ส โบ เบ ท we have Real Madrid and after that Bayern Munich and that's our start."I just hope the boys on deserved holidays, they take care of themselves a little bit and I hope somebody wants to do what (Marcus) Rashford and (Phil) Jones decide to do, which is to be back a little bit earlier to try and help the team because for the beginning of the season we are going to be in trouble.
