Granqvist is the man who organises everything for them at the back, and he does a very good job. That organisation is their obvious strength - they were really compact against the Swiss and denied them any space between their defensive lines.
But despite Sweden's impressive defensive record in Russia, I can see England causing them lots of problems in a way Switzerland could not do. With the speed and mobility of England's attacking players, including their full-backs, I think they can move Sweden around in midfield as well as defence. Sweden are competing in their fifth World Cup quarter-final - they have progressed to the semi-final in three of their previous fourandlosing only in against Germany If they make the pitch as big as possible, and get Kieran Trippier and Ashley Young bombing forward, then I am sure they will find some gaps.
I don't see Sweden causing England many issues at the other end, though. Pace is something that Sweden don't have when they come forward and they seemed short of ideas - they only had a handful of opportunities against Switzerland and had a little bit of good fortune with the deflected goal they scored.
