Diary

Wednesday, 27 June 2018 - Sweden propelled themselves into the World Cup knockout stage with a handsome victory over Mexico that qualified them as Group F winners and condemned Germany to early elimination. Mexico, undone on the counter attack and from the penalty spot before conceding an own goal, joined Sweden in reaching the next round as runners-up despite the defeat as a result of the defending champions also losing. Germany, the four-time World Cup winners, were beaten 2-0 by South Korea and failed to reach the knockout stage for the first time in 16 consecutive appearances since 1954.

Tuesday, 3 July 2018 - Sweden will play England or Colombia in the quarter-finals of the World Cup after defeating Switzerland in a strangely compelling but untidy tie in St Petersburg. Emil Forsberg struck the decisive blow midway through the second half with a shot that deflected off the luckless Manuel Akanji and left Yann Sommer stranded in the Swiss goal. Sommer had brilliantly clawed away a shot on the turn from Marcus Berg in the first half and denied Haris Seferovic late on but it was undoubtedly a game that was more about missed opportunities than good saves. Both sides were guilty of squandering good openings - and Switzerland ended it with 10 men after Michael Lang was dismissed in injury time for a push on Martin Olsson, who was clean through on goal. The referee initially gave a penalty but changed his decision to a free-kick after a review.
Mikael Lustig, The Celtic right-back was booked and sits out their next match.

Wednesday, 4 July 2018 - Sweden are nursing a couple of players through injury ahead of their encounter with England at the weekend. Albin Ekdal has had x-rays on a foot problem while fellow midfielder Jimmy Durmaz also missed training today because of a minor issue with his hip. 'I think they'll check him today but he feels positive, that's the information I've received,' captain Andreas Granqvist said following Wednesday's media session.'We hope that there is nothing serious.'
