Sweden's starting line-up named for Sweden-Ireland World Cup qualifier

Sweden coach Erik Hamrén made no surprises when he announced the starting eleven for tonight's match against the Republic of Ireland at Stockholm's Friends Arena.

The two teams battle it out tonight in this crucial qualifying match for the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.

IFK Göteborg's forward Tobias Hysén will play from the start. He gets the nod, replacing the injured Johan Elmander. As expected, Behrang Safari will replace the injured defender Martin Olsson. Kim Källström will battle in the midfield with Rasmus Elm.

The match kicks off at 9:45 tonight.
