Fixture of games in quarter finals

Why is it that the order of games keeps Uruguay vs France and Rusia vs Croatia but in the botton half of the other teams instead of England vs Brazil and Sweden vs Belgium they have crossed England to play Sweden and Brazil vs Belgium maken it easier for England to play Sweden and not have to play Brazil wich is obviously harder.

Re: Fixture of games in quarter finals

It is all decided at the original draw for the world cup many months ago, have a look at this link:

As it is if England had beaten Belgium in the early stages they would have been drawn to play Brazil. It would not be right or fair to amend the draw as the games progress.
