Victor Lindelof warns England ahead of World Cup quarter-final clash

The two European countries go head-to-head with the winner potentially facing either Russia or Croatia in the semi-finals.

Lindelof has had a very good World Cup so far, gaining praise from the media and United fans looking on keenly. This could be the making of the Swede in a United shirt.

Whether it’s enough for Mourinho to change his mind on bringing in an experience, world-class centre-back remains to be seen but for now, Lindelof has a World Cup to worry about and he has warned England ahead of the match.

Sweden are a difficult side to come up against, so he’s right that the Three Lions shouldn’t take them lightly. Gareth Southgate will need to find a way to break them down in the final third.

This could be a surprisingly fascinating encounter.
