Euro 2020 Sweden

Sweden will be looking to emulate their Euro 1992 performance in Euro 2020 where they reached the semi-finals. In recent times they have just gone through the group stages in 2004.

Goalkeeper: Robin Olsen

Andreas Isaksson represented Sweden over the last six international tournaments. He retired after the last Euros in 2016 leaving big boots to fill for Robin Olsen. Olsen has challenged England’s Number 1 at the club level with Everton. He is a formidable shot-stopper with a calm presence in the box.

Defense: Victor Lindelof

Victor Lindelof was the understudy of Andreas Granquist for a number of years in the Swedish national team. This will be the first international tournament where he will take up the leadership of the backline. Lindelof played a major part in Manchester United’s runners-up finish in the Premier League as well as the road to the finals in the Europa League. His positional sense helps him with a number of blocks and interceptions.

Midfield: Dejan Kulusevski

Sweden has unearthed a diamond in Dejan Kulusevski. The youngster has enjoyed a breakthrough season with Juventus after a summer move from Parma. His dribbling is impeccable and the pace he possesses is unplayable at times. Kulusevski could be the dark horse for Sweden and Young Player of the Tournament at Euro 2020.

Attack: Alexander Isak

Real Sociedad have been one of the most dynamic attacking forces in La Liga this season and there’s no doubting Alexander Isak has been the driving force behind that. The 21-year-old has netted 16 times in 33 appearances, building on a solid start to life in Spain last year.

Predicted line-up:

Robin Olsen; Pierre Bengtsson, Marcus Danielson, Victor Lindelof, Emil Krafth; Emil Forsberg, Kristoffer Olsson, Albin Ekdal, Sebastian larsson; Alexander Isak, Dejan Kulusevski
