EURO 2012 - 10 DAYS TO GO

Swedish stars warm-up for Iceland with Ferrari fun

Sweden faces Iceland on Wednesday in its penultimate warm-up match for Euro 2012 with national coach Erik Hamrén set to finalise his 23-man squad today for Poland and Ukraine. The players meanwhile prepared on Monday by playing golf and racing Ferraris and Lamborghini's around Gotland's racetrack. 

On Wednesday Sweden will come up against former manager Lars Lagerbäck who guided Sweden to five consecutive major tournaments before leaving his post after failing to qualify for the 2010 World Cup in Germany.

Erik Hamrén, 55, has had a number of injury problems to contend with while preparing his squad on Gotland last week. Striker Johan Elmander is only rated as 50-50 to feature in the tournament after chipping a bone in his foot while playing for Galatasaray earlier this month. Goalkeeper Andreas Isaksson is though expected to start on Wednesday after a three month lay-off with a shoulder injury.

Hamrén will also be giving thought of where to deploy star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovich on Wednesday - behind Ola Toivonen or in front as a natural orthodox striker.

Sweden kicks-off its Euro 2012 campaign on June 11 against co-hosts Ukraine followed by a meeting with England and then France in a final group match.
