World Cup

Sweden Earn Battling Point

Not a happy night for the World Footballer of the year Ronaldo

In their vital World Cup qualifier against Portugal, it was a job well done for Sweden’s footballers as they returned from Lisbon with a point following a goalless draw on Saturday evening.

The two sides had also drawn 0-0 in Stockholm earlier in the campaign. Sweden’s coach Lars Lagerbäck, missing star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic through suspension, was pleased with his side’s defensive qualities.

”Portugal played better but we defended very well and you could say we earned the draw,” said Lagerbäck.

”Of course I am satisfied with a point here. We still have to play two games against Denmark so everything is open in this group.”

”This was really good for us,” Sweden goalkeeper Andreas Isaksson said. ”Not so good for them. They did not create many chances.”

Denmark top the qualification group on 10 points from four matches, the same haul as Hungary. Portugal and Sweden are level on six points, although Portugal have played a game more.

Sweden face Denmark at home on a public holiday, National day, on June the 6th.
