Diary

Monday, 29 October 2001 - Celtic striker Henrik Larsson and Barcelona defender Patrik Andersson are the two notable absentees from the Swedish squad to face England at Old Trafford on November 10. Both men have decided to opt out of the friendly against England.  Larsson has asked for a break, while Andersson is injured.  Other absentees from the 20-man squad named by coaches Lars Lagerback and Tommy Soderberg include Aston Villa's Olof Mellberg and AIK striker Andreas Andersson, who are injured.  Five British-based players have been named, including Coventry keeper Magnus Hedman and Arsenal's Freddie Ljungberg.

Monday, 6 November 2001 - Freddie Ljungberg looks set to miss Sweden's friendly after injuring a shoulder in Arsenal's defeat to Charlton Athletic.  Ljungberg took a knock in the shock 4-2 home defeat to Alan Curbishley's men on Sunday and played no part in last night's 4-0 Worthington Cup win over Manchester United.  Arsene Wenger admitted that it is unlikely Ljungberg will be fit in time to play at Old Trafford on Saturday.

Tuesday, 7 November 2001 - Freddie Ljungberg has withdrawn from the squad after failing to recover from a shoulder injury.
