Sweden vs England Preview

The final match in the second round of group games, will be between Sweden and England in Kiev.

Sweden let a one goal lead slip as they fell to a two one defeat against co-host Ukraine, England gained a point against group favorites France and will take some confidence into this game. The two sides were expected to battle it out for the second placed spot but a win for England here will surely knock out the Swedish.

Sweden never really got out of first gear on Monday and were all over the shop after the Andriy Shevchenko show, they know they're going to have to perform much better in order to get anything from this match. The English were very defensively minded against the French and seemed happy with the point, they're going to have to play a lot more expansively in order to win this one.

For me, this game's got a draw written all over it, it's a match both sides dare not lose and I think no one will go out a win the game for their side. I can see England having to beat Ukraine in their final game and Sweden having to beat France in their finale.
