"If you want to achieve something, you have to fight for it every time", said Lukaku, who has impressed at the World Cup with four goals and is second in the Golden Boot race, behind England's Harry Kane with six.

"Deep down I think England have one eye on the semi-final and maybe they believe a little bit that they can get to the final", Eriksson said, before warning that England cannot afford to lose to Janne Andersson's side. England were last in the semi-finals at Italia '90, while Sweden made it to the stage in U.S. '94. But the best thing for us was to beat them at football.

But Suárez will for the umpteenth time start as Uruguay's first line of offence but perhaps for the final time at the world's greatest stage.

"France are still inconsistent".

France had 57 per cent of the possession and made almost 200 more passes than Uruguay but only had two shots on target - a meagre return for a line-up that included Griezmann, Kylian Mbappe and Paul Pogba.

American killed in Bahamas boat explosion ID'd as Tennessee woman
Sheila Jones and John Inman were named as other passengers on the boat, but they did not suffer serious injuries. She's now in a medically induced coma in critical condition; her mother was also severely injured.

It is a result which sets up a quarter-finals tie against Sweden on Saturday (3pm BST kick-off) with the victors going on to face either hosts Russian Federation or Croatia in the last-four.

"'I have said I want to put things right after the way I left the last World Cup, and this can be my time, this can be our time", said Suárez.

And between Sweden and England in Samara tomorrow?

While Neymar remains their biggest threat, the man the rest of the world loves to hate is by no means the sole weapon of the Brazilians.

Jamie Redknapp has urged Gareth Southgate to stick to his attacking instincts if Dele Alli misses Saturday's game with Sweden.

Thai boys found, still in danger
But the days-long rescue operation isn't over, as rescuers still need to figure out how to get the team out of the cave. Several fissures have been found and teams have explored some, although so far, none lead to the trapped boys.

O'Neill continued: "This will be the end for Russian Federation".

"You have to find solutions, you have to find reaction but what you have to find more than anything is the desire and togetherness of a group of players, that they are desperate to perform", Martinez said.

If O'Neill's predictions prove correct then Uruguay will face Brazil in St Petersburg on Tuesday for a place in the final - with Brazil progressing. He likes the traditional South American drink mate, he speaks Spanish like someone from the South American country and he's been pictured wearing the team's jersey.

I think this is a hard one to call.

Griezmann plays at Atletico Madrid where his teammates are Uruguayan defenders Godin and Jose Maria Gimenez.
