World Cup 2018: How to watch England vs Sweden online

As if a two-week heatwave wasn’t surprising enough, England only went and won a penalty shootout at a major tournament against Colombia.

The triumph means that England will face Sweden, who edged past Switzerland 1-0 in their Round of 16 game, on Saturday (July 7) in the quarter-final of the World Cup, with the winners facing either Russia or Croatia in the semi-final.

But if you’re not near a TV on Saturday, fear not, as you can watch the match online. (Well, as long as you have a TV licence.)
