Sweden’s Euro 2016 line-up announced

The line-up for the Swedish men’s national football team in the European Championships was announced by coach Erik Hamrén Wednesday night.

There were few surprises in Hamrén’s squad. Six of the players were part of the winning team in the U21 Euro last year, and the line-up also contains three players from the Allsvenskan football league.

The midfielder Albin Ekdal is part of Hamrén’s squad, but it is not certain whether he will be able to go to France this summer after he was recently injured falling at a night club in Hamburg. 

”That’s still a big questionmark,” Hamrén told the news agency TT.

Euro 2016 will be Sweden’s first championship since the Euro in Poland and Ukraine four years ago.
