Present in Group F of the qualifiers for Euro 2021, Sweden met expectations by taking 2nd place in the standings, behind Spain and ahead of Norway, Romania, the Faroe Islands and Malta. On the other hand, the selection is for the moment not at the level of its opponents in its Nations League group A. Last in the standings, playmaker Forsberg’s partners were first bowed, at home each time, against France (0-1) and Portugal (0-2) in September. In October, they lost in Croatia (2-1) and Portugal (3-0). Just before these last two losses, Sweden won a friendly match played in Russia (1-2).
Vice world champion in 2018, Croatia has not posted the same level since due, in part, to the ageing of a beautiful generation. Luka Modric’s partners still dominated their qualifying pool for Euro 2021, finishing ahead of Wales, Slovakia, Hungary and Azerbaijan. Last September, they began their journey in Group 3 of the League of Nations A with 2 losses conceded in Portugal (4-1) and France (4-2). In October, they took over, at home, over Sweden (2-1) before losing against France (1-2). At the last rally, Croatia also won a friendly match played in Switzerland (1-2).
The staff for Sweden vs Croatia
The Swedish coach can count on all of his executives for this gathering. However, defenders Jansson (Brentford) and Augustinsson (Werder Bremen) were not called up as were forwards Guidetti and Kiese Thelin. Important in this formation, goalkeeper Olsen (Everton), defenders Lustig (AIK) and Lindelöf (Manchester United) midfielders Olsson (Krasnodar) and Ekdal (Sampdoria) and forwards Kulusevski (Juventus), Forsberg (Leipzig) and Berg ( Krasnodar) are there.
On the Croatian side, defender Vrsaljko and attackers Rebic and Kramaric are absent from this gathering, not summoned or injured. Otherwise, the regulars of the selection Vida (Besiktas), Lovren (Zenit), Brozovic (Inter), Kovacic (Chelsea), Modric (Real Madrid) or Perisic (Inter) still play a major role. Playmaker Vlasic (5 goals in 15 sel) is considered one of the best players in the Russian league and is now highly regarded in the national team. In front, Brekalo (Wolfsburg) and Petkovic (Dinamo Zagreb) compete for the position of centre forward.
