It should be a big day at the World Cup today, as both Belgium and England begin play, but first we have a bit of a warm-up with a Zlatan-less Sweden taking on South Korea in Nizhny Novgorod.

Hopefully it turns into a better game than yesterday’s early match between Costa Rica and Serbia.

Here we go!
