Brazil vs Argentina: Team news

Richarlison is likely to be back for the semi-final after sitting out the win over Paraguay with mumps.

But should he miss out again, Everton should start after he proved to be a revelation in the 5-0 win over Peru.

Felipe Luis is a doubt for Brazil, having been taken off at half time against Paraguay, while Fernandinho hasn’t played since the second group game.

Argentina have no injury concerns and are likely to continue with Messi playing behind a front two of Lautaro Martinez and Sergio Aguero.

Boss Lionel Scaloni will also need to decide whether to bring in Spurs target Giovani Lo Celso after his goal from the bench against Venezuela or stick with the more defensively minded Marcos Acuna.

Demarai Gray is convinced England will still reach the semi-finals despite their late collapse against France.

The Leicester winger said: “We are not stressing, not worried. We can still go through as the best second-placed (team).

“But we can go through top of the table maybe and it is important we put goals in the net in the next couple of games.

“Everyone is hurting but the spirit is fine. No one is on to each other, no one is down. We are a good group.

“We have spirit and quality in the team. We dominated the game, but having 10 men killed us a little bit.

“But circumstances get like that and we lost it at the end. The boys will fight and recover and work towards Romania.”

England boss Gareth Southgate will monitor each of his players who featured in the weekend’s energy-sapping Champions League final.

Harry Kane returned from an ankle injury to start in Spurs’ 2-0 defeat to Liverpool, playing the full 90 minutes along with Jordan Henderson, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Dele Alli and Danny Rose.

However, Kane is set to be rested and Raheem Sterling will captain the side instead on his 50th cap.

KEY BATTLES

RAHEEM STERLING vs MATTHIJS DE LIGT

Sterling has had a stunning season in the Premier League, racking up 17 goals and 10 assists in his best season to date.

The 24-year-old has also started scoring freely for the Three Lions, something he has struggled with in the past.

The City winger has six goals in his last five outings for Southgate’s side and has become a talismanic figure for England in their last few matches.

However, Sterling faces the daunting task of facing another imperious Dutch centre-back.

De Ligt is a phenomenal talent for someone who is still just 19 years old. His leadership skills guided Ajax to the Champions League semi-final and there is no surprising there is now an ongoing tug-of-war between Europe’s elite clubs for his signature.

If De Ligt can get the better of Sterling then England’s biggest danger is nullified and the Three Lions will have a real chance of hurting the Oranje.

HARRY MAGUIRE vs MEMPHIS DEPAY

Leicester centre-back Maguire had a slow start to the season following England’s gruelling World Cup campaign, but his form picked up quickly and he ended up having another superb season for the Foxes.

Maguire is definitely Southgate’s no.1 choice at the heart of defence but he will have the stern test of dealing with Dutch winger Depay.

Depay has had a great season for Lyon, scoring up ten goals and recording ten assists, as his side finished third in Ligue 1.

The tricky winger always seem to play well for his national side, having scored five times in his six outings for Koeman’s men.

Portugal vs Switzerland: Team News

Cristiano Ronaldo looks set to spearhead the Portuguese attack against the Swiss, but there is a new star rising through the ranks.

Joao Felix has attracted admiring glances from the biggest teams in Europe following a stunning campaign with Benfica and Portugal head coach Santos is ready to throw in the uncapped teenager.

“He’s been called up for a reason,” he said of the 19-year-old, who is being tracked by both Manchester United and Manchester City.

“We need to call up players who can contribute, he has great qualities, he has been showing it at club level and he’s one of 23 players who are here on merit, and if he’s here it’s because he’s ready to play and contribute.

“Everyone is training well, they’re really up for the game and we’re not thinking further ahead than tomorrow.”

Switzerland approach the semi-final as underdogs but boast the talent and togetherness to harm the Portuguese.

Granit Xhaka is hoping to make history with the trophyless Swiss a week on from playing a part in Arsenal’s galling 4-1 Europa League final defeat to Chelsea in Baku.

“It was disappointing to lose the final,” the midfielder said.

“We look forward now and I hope to win a title with Switzerland.”
