Brazil is expected to win this match, but they should not underestimate how big of a weapon Lukaku could be.
The World Cup began on 14 June in Russian Federation, and is set to conclude later this month. "It's quite exciting. No doubt about that".
Top stat: Sweden's victories over Mexico and Switzerland were their first back-to-back wins since 1958, when they reached the final on home turf. Sweden will come into this game considered an underdog, but the team has all the tools to overcome England. The foreign tourist flow grew 10 times in Kaliningrad and Yekaterinburg and 15 times in Volgograd, whereas in the other World Cup host cities it increased 1.5-2 times. But that doesn't mean it's not exciting.
Where can you watch the 2018 World Cup final?
One of the upsides to hosting the World Cup is the hordes of global tourists and their bulging wallets that will inevitably descend.
Another shocking game was Belgium-Japan, in a major shocker, Japan was winning the game 2-0, but a soccer match has 90 minutes and for the last 25 minutes Belgium dominated and were able to pull a win in the last minute, literally. Tite's side is a favorite at +114, and if his team manages to eliminate the Red Devils, they can go all the way. And perhaps they are getting Belgium at the ideal time after their exhausting desperation match with Japan.
Much of the focus surrounding Brazil's challenge has inevitably been on Neymar. "I am actually a Portugal fan". Now, I feel that Brazil stands a chance.
"I think Croatia are a really good team, but they wouldn't scare me if I was playing for England".
If Croatia overcome Russia, Dalic's side will face either England or Sweden in the semi-finals.
Streetwise Real Madrid midfielder Casemiro being suspended for a World Cup quarter-final should be a cause of mild panic. Here's everything we know so far. This gives reason for teams unlucky in the past like England, Brazil, Belgium and Colombia to now dream and live on in hope that their tournament could bear more meaningful fruit.
I'm going for my neighbours in Nizhny Novgorod over the last three weeks, Uruguay. He is a great player with a lot of talent, but for some reason he does not understand what fair play is. They play like they have nothing to lose. Although disappointing at times, they've done what's necessary and had what it takes. But that wasn't there this time. Everybody has started getting the feeling that they can do it. This isn't the new for the team's fans as Sports Illustrated notes they did the same thing after a win over Colombia earlier in the tournament. So, it could be England.
