Our forecast for this Euro 2024 game:
Highlighted Team (Sweden):
Sweden are the most successful Nordic side on international stage having been present at major competitions since 1934. Blagult missed out on the 1952 World Cup trophy on home soil as they were beaten by star-studded Brazil side, while they finished in third place at the 1950 and 1994 tournaments, and finishing fourth on their second appearance in 1938.
In regards to their performance in the European Championship, Sweden’s greatest achievement was in front of their home crowd when they made it to the semi-finals in 1992. They have also made it to the quarter-finals in Euro 1994 in Portugal.
Anders Svensson and Thomas Ravelli hold the record for most appearances on the team, with over 140 each. However, it is strikers Henrik Larsson and Zlatan Ibrahimovic who are considered the most renowned Swedish football players of all time. Ibrahimovic, in particular, tops the list for most goals scored for the national team with over 60 strikes. He is also highly regarded as one of the most vibrant personalities in not only Scandinavia, but in global football as well.
