Club History

Sweden spent its World Cup qualifying campaign as a team in transition. Zlatan Ibrahimovic, the country’s all-time leading scorer, is no longer an international player and Sweden must now find someone else to lead the team. Manager Janne Andersson has RB Leipzig star playmaker Emil Forsberg running the team’s attack. The midfielder is a high-quality player that could earn himself a move to a bigger club post-World Cup. Sweden qualified by beating Italy in the playoffs and the Swedes have every opportunity to get through Group F.
