Sweden are easy to analyse, difficult to beat, says coach Andersson

Gary Lineker England Cameroon World Cup 1990

"When you play against a team like that - that want to fight and disturb your momentum, you can sometimes get dragged into it and that's what they want".

Elaborating on Uruguay's style of play, Deschamps said: "If they need 10 players to defend, they will do that".

But it was too late for Brazil to muster an equalizer as efforts to force the game into extra time were thwarted by Belgium goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois.

There was little to glean from Uruguay's group win over Saudi Arabia but their 1-0 beating of Egypt and the 3-0 thumping of Russian Federation, where Diego Godin and Edinson Cavani - one of the finds of the tournament - showed just what they are capable of.

The 1998 World Cup-winning skipper seemed particularly pleased his side had given Uruguay so few opportunities, especially from set-pieces.

One way they have missed Ibrahimovic, though, is that they have relatively little quality going forward.

This is supposed to be Belgium's golden generation, and perhaps for the first time we are beginning to see why. Neymar has had an unspectacular World Cup so far, although by no means unproductive.

A Fernando Luiz Roza own goal in the 13th minute got things started for Belgium, who would extend the lead in the 31st minute. With Sweden up next in the quarter-finals on Saturday night, the Manchester City defender reflected upon how his teammates stayed cool under extreme pressure.

The South American side, suffering due to the absence of striker Edinson Cavani through injury, nearly struck back immediately. "This is part of Uruguay's identity, but we also have it, and I'm happy we do".

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

"I wanted to reject the ball but it hit just my left hand and beat it", Mulera said. "Apart from that, they didn't have many great opportunities". He had 11 saves and had allowed only one goal in four World Cup matches in Russian Federation.

"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.

The country was trying to reach the semifinals for the second time in the last three World Cups. "Today we played against opponents that were stronger than we were".
