Stones spoke about the Colomian team at the press conference too, saying, "I'd never seen a game like that before and how they behaved".

Without having much pace in the team, when Ivan Rakitic and Luka Modric get on the ball it's hard to get teams down. Emil Forsberg's 66th-minute goal was the difference for the Blågult.

"It's unusual to constantly be at the top, younger players come through and new teams emerge and I think we're seeing a bit of that at this tournament".

"It isn't about living in the past - this for me is about making things right".


"Everyone who has been here for a period of time now has discovered a country that we didn't know", Infantino said, flanked by former stars including England's Rio Ferdinand.

Godin, who was playing for Uruguay on Friday, is also the godfather of Griezmann's daughter.

England, which came second behind Belgium in Group G, has arguably ended up on the easier side of the draw after the two sides made big changes for their final group match, which Belgium won 1-0.

They won their only World Cup in 1998 on home soil, and in 2006 lost to Italy on penalties.

The Three Lions defeated Colombia 1-1 (4-3 on penalties) in the Round of 16 earlier this week.

Uruguay almost answered back minutes later, but France kept a clean sheet thanks to this awesome diving save by keeper Hugo Lloris.


Uruguay almost replied immediately, also from a set-piece, when Martin Caceres' header was saved low to his right by France goalkeeper Hugo Lloris.

"It's flattering to be the second one since Pele", said Mbappe, born in France to a father from Cameroon and a mother from Algeria.

"They have shown it so many times now".

Of the Uruguay v France quarter-final, O'Neill said: "Uruguay will win it. Mind you, it depends if (Edinson) Cavani is available". Svensson got his first World Cup start replacing the suspended Sebastian Larsson, and played the full 90 minutes in the shutout win.

Uruguay will have to decide whether to retain Tabarez, whose contract is set to expire, but the 71-year-old said it would be his decision on whether he returns.
