"It was a pretty even game, they [Belgium] had better control of possession and better chances in the first half, we had good ones in the second", Southgate said to ITV.

"I'm a little surprised because everybody seems to be happy in England, thinking they are now on the right side of the World Cup draw because they've avoided the half with Brazil", said Eriksson, who believes his countrymen will see off Switzerland to set up the showdown with England.

Gareth Southgate was impressed by England captain Harry Kane's response to seeing his Golden Boot tilt put on hold, praising the sharpshooter's collective focus ahead of the World Cup knockout phase.

"We want to be in those games".

"During my time with England we met [Sweden] four times".

"Better to lose to Neymar than Granit Xhaka, to die a heroic death at the height of your powers", said the Guardian, comparing Arsenal's Swiss midfielder to the world's most expensive player.

"In the last 30 years, how many times have England beaten Sweden?".

"The players who've played tonight have given absolutely everything and never stopped".

"There have been many different reasons for not getting over the line".

Belgium manager Roberto Martinez has confirmed that Romelu Lukaku is fully fit again after missing Thursday's FIFA World Cup clash with England.

Southgate has taken a strong interest in that work, commissioned by FA technical director Dan Ashworth, with one interesting conclusion being that England players take their kicks quicker than anyone else and need to slow down. "That's hugely important for the feeling in our camp over the next few weeks", said Southgate.

Wiltshire Police is urging suburban pubs to make sure they are prepared properly for World Cup games, after responding to reports of "trouble" at a crowded local pub.

"For me, it's going to be a brilliant game to be involved in".

The Colombia coach said he was "extremely concerned" about the player's fitness but was pleased that the team rose to the occasion to snatch the win against Senegal.
