Andres Granqvist is a busy man at the moment: not only is the 33-year Sweden captain putting the finishing touches to preparations for his side's World Cup quarterfinal against England on Saturday, but he also became a father for the second time in the early hours of Thursday morning.

If Sweden wins this game it will end England's journey hopes of winning the World Cup yet again.

"I'm very excited, it's been a long time coming for England to do well", she says.

"When Sweden wins, let's see what David Beckham tells me". "It's going to be a very tough match against him but we will do our best to stop him", said Granqvist, who will be partnered by Victor Lindel of in central defence.

"We are a team and we are all happy to be here", said Andersson, who explained that his players have now spent 45 days together.

England and Sweden have twice met at the World Cup with both encounters in 2002 and 2006 ending in stalemates.

"We need to be very strong in the penalty box and try and make sure they don't get the service they need".

"We're lads who have come from Barnsley and Leeds and Bolton and Blackburn".

"I think there was a coach who once said about their team that they're quite easy to analyse but quite hard to beat".

"It's important we remember Steve (Holland) was at Crewe".

"Most of our boys have played in the Championship or lower, whether they started there or played on loan there".

"We are having success because we are really grafting for each other, we are playing some good football but we are really working without the ball. That's the bedrock of why we are getting some decent results and we have to continue doing that".

"If we get through the first 20 minutes, we can go through to the semis".
