Switzerland and Sweden head into their last-16 this afternoon knowing that they both have a golden chance to reach a World Cup final.

Russia's shock penalty shootout victory over Spain has blown open this side of the knockout draw, with one of England, Colombia, Croatia, Russia, Sweden and Switzerland certain to reach the final on July 15.

Spain's defeat ensures that at least one of this year's finalists will not have reached the title decider for half a century - if at all - and will give the Swiss and the Swedes a timely boost with both sides confident of winning to set up a quarter-final against either England or Colombia.

Sweden continues their World Cup 2018 preparations this week against an Switzerland team who failed to qualify for the finals for the first time since 1958.

Italy fell to Sweden in the playoffs, meaning the Azzurri will not be competing at a World Cup for the first time in over half a century.

It is a different story for Argentina though, and 2014's beaten finalists will be hoping that Lionel Messi can inspire them to go one better this summer to lift the trophy in Russia.

Start time

Sweden take on Switzerland at Saint Petersburg Stadium on Tuesday, July 3, with kick-off scheduled for 3pm BST.

Sweden Possible Starting Lineup:

Sweden do have some issues with goalkeepers but as the things stand Manchester United’s Sergio Romero is set to start with Nahuel Guzman and Geronimo Rulli as backup keepers.

 Gabriel Mercado is likely to be the first choice at right-back while if fit Marcos Rojo should be left back with Emmanuel Mas is another possible candidate for the left back position. 

Nicolas Otamendi is certain to start in central defense alongside either Mateo Musacchio or Ramiro Funes Mori.

Javier Mascherano is likely to start in defensive midfield role proving shield for defense while two of the three (Lucas Biglia, Leandro Paredes, and Ever Banega) should start alongside Mascherano in midfield depending on what system Argentina use. 

Di Maria comes to play with 4-4-2’s variation. Lionel Messi to captain and start on the right side of three-man attack with Higuain or Aguero starting at center-forwards. At the left flank, it will be between fierce competition between Paulo Dybala/Di Maria or even Angel Correa.

Team News

The two nations have met four times before, with Argentina winning every game - the last of which was a 2-0 victory back in 2009.

The two nations have met 27 times before, with both teams winning 10 times and sharing seven draws. Their last meeting, however, came back in 2002 - a 1-1 friendly draw.

Swiss duo Stephan Lichtsteiner and Fabian Schar are both suspended, while Sweden will be without midfielder Sebastian Larsson.

Predicted starting line-ups
Sweden XI: 
Olsen, Lustig, Lindelof, Granqvist, Augustinsson, Claesson, Svensson, Ekdal, Forsberg, Berg, Toivonen

Switzerland XI: 
Sommer, Rodriguez, Akanji, Moubandje, Zuber, Xhaka, Behrami, Embolo, Dzemaili, Shaqiri, Gavranovic

Youngsters to watch out for: Dybala & Angel Correa

Dybala is already a household name in European football however he has yet to perform at international level. He is unlikely to feature often as he plays in the same position as legendary Messi but if given a chance he might pull off a few surprises in 2018 World Cup. Angel Correa is another name who by the time World Cup starts might have cemented his place at left flank for Argentina.

Argentina World Cup 2018 Schedule:

2014 World Cup finalists, Argentina has a relatively easy group with Iceland, Nigeria and Croatia.

Argentina vs Iceland – 16 June 2018 1-1

Argentina vs Croatia – 21 June 2018 0-3
Argentina vs Nigeria – 26 June 2018 2-1

Possible Argentina 23-Man Squad For World Cup 2018: 

Argentina are likely to announce the 2018 World Cup squad at least 30 days before the start of 2018 World Cup. So we can expect announcement somewhere around 15 May 2018.

1-0 Sweden
