Euro 2020 Squad Guide and Analysis: Sweden

Unfortunately, Euro 2020 won’t be blessed with Zlatan Ibrahimovic. But Sweden’s up-and-coming stars have an opportunity to make a name for themselves on the biggest stage of all.

• Manager: Janne Andersson

• Current FIFA World Ranking: 18th

• Best European Championship finish: Semi-Finals (1992)

It’s fair to say that Sweden have enjoyed very little Euros success in recent years, having bowed out at the group stage in each of the previous three competitions. Can the new Blue & Yellow generation buck the trend this time around?

• Sweden’s Euro 2020 Squad

Goalkeepers: Karl-Johan Johnsson (Copenhagen), Kristoffer Nordfeldt (Genclerbirligi), Robin Olsen (Everton).

Defenders: Ludwig Augustinsson (Werder Bremen), Pierre Bengtsson (Vejle), Marcus Danielson (Dalian Yifang), Andreas Granqvist (Helsingborg), Filip Helander (Rangers), Pontus Jansson (Brentford), Emil Krafth (Newcastle United), Victor Lindelof (Manchester United), Mikael Lustig (AIK).

Midfielders: Jens-Lys Cajuste (Midtjylland), Viktor Claesson (Krasnodar), Albin Ekdal (Sampdoria), Emil Forsberg (Leipzig), Dejan Kulusevski (Juventus), Sebastian Larsson (AIK), Kristoffer Olsson (Krasnodar), Robin Quaison (Mainz), Ken Sema (Watford), Mattias Svanberg (Bologna), Gustav Svensson (Guangzhou).

Forwards: Marcus Berg (Krasnodar), Alexander Isak (Real Sociedad), Jordan Larsson (Spartak Moskva).

• Who Will Sweden Face in Group E?

Sweden’s tournament-opener could hardly be tougher, with Spain hosting the Blue & Yellow in Seville on June 14.

On June 18, Andersson’s side travel to Russia to face Slovakia, before finishing up against Poland on June 23.

• Sweden’s Star Player

Dejan Kulusevski: With Zlatan out of the equation, Kulusevski looks set to be Sweden’s focal point at Euro 2020.

The 21-year-old featured in all but three of Juventus’ Serie A matches last season, contributing seven goals and seven assists in all competitions throughout 2020/21.

• How Far Can Sweden Go?

Spain will likely finish atop Group E, but with the possibility of three qualification spots up for grabs, Sweden will fancy their chances of reaching the knockout phase.

Ultimately, it will probably be difficult for Andersson’s men to go any further than the last 16. But they will be confident of getting out of Group E.

Prediction: Round of 16.
