Sweden Team Woken Early After Fire Alarm Goes Off In Hotel
The Swedish team were woken early from their beds after a fire alarm went off in their hotel just hours before they face England in today's quarter final.
The team were kicked out of bed at around 8am (local time), meanwhile Gareth Southgate's team were tucked up in bed a few miles away so will be well-rested before today's match.
Sleepy-looking Swedes with snapped in the lobby of the posh Lotte hotel as the alarm rang out around them.
According to the Daily Mail, one of the players was overheard saying: "We could do without this today." Well, yeah, maybe you could, mate, but it's going to be music to the ears of England fans.
Terry Comitti, an England fan who is staying at the hotel told the Daily Mail: "The Swedish players looked like they had the right hump.
"They were not happy and that wouldn't be a surprise when they were supposed to be getting their beauty sleep before what is probably the biggest games of their lives.

"It might do England a favour though if they are a bit tired when they kick off on the match later."
Another England fan who was also staying at the hotel said he 'felt a bit sorry' for the team, adding that they had been 'very friendly' with fans.
He also confirmed that the alarm was nothing to worry about, saying: "Thankfully nothing happened to them on the day of the match, but I suppose the hotel couldn't take any chances if an alarm goes off."
On Twitter fans are already joking about the alarm being triggered by an England fan, with one posting: "Some little rascal set the fire alarm off last night. Knight that guy."
The match kicks off at 3pm (BST), with home-side Russia taking on Croatia later on today to find who will be going through to the quarter-finals. Belgium and France are already through after both winning their games yesterday.
