Sweden set for England Euro 2013 warm-up

Hosts Sweden play their final Euro 2013 warm-up game against England in Ljungskile this evening. Coach Pia Sundhage's starting eleven will give an indicator of her selection thoughts for next Wednesday's football tournament opener against Denmark in Gothenburg.

Jenny Hjohlman makes her debut for the women's national side while Kristin Hammarström returns in goal.

England's long-serving coach Hope Powell, who is missing a number of injured players, told the BBC: "It's an honour Sweden want to play us, and we want to play them," said Powell. "The game will give us an opportunity to experience what to expect in the Euros proper."
