In their last game against France, England showed some glimpses of brilliance, but that was not enough to seal the game. Indeed, they must consider themsleves lucky not to have lost the game. On the other hand, Sweden was unlucky to lose against Ukraine, after Shevchenko scored twice to break Swedish fans and players hearts. But, this time they cannot afford to be careless and allow such things to happen.
Sweden, like England, have some great players in their ranks such as Martin Olsson, Rasmus Elm, Sebastian Larsson, Johan Elmander, and Zlatan Ibrahimovi?, to spoil the party for England. They are quality players, who, on a given day, can seriously test any team's defense. England would be praying that tonight is not their night. The Swedish players must be more determined to play a good game of football, after their loss against Ukraine.
The game for the both the nations is more or less a do or die situation. They have to win the match in order to increase their chances of progressing into the latter stages of the competition. With this in mind, the players are going to give their all, when they face off at the Olympic stadium. It is the neutral fans during the match who would benefit the most as there will be no compromise on the quality of football that is going to take place.
