What the coaches say
Janne Andersson, Sweden coach: "There are no bad teams in League A, so we knew we would end up in a group with very good teams. We have six really tough challenges ahead where we will test ourselves against some of Europe's and the world's best teams. It will be fantastic to finally be able to play international matches again. During the pandemic, we made the best of the situation. We feel as prepared as we can be."
Didier Deschamps, France coach: "We've had almost a full week of training, but training sessions are not the same as a real match. This group has plenty of desire, and they've enjoyed being reunited, even in the current situation. The only time they can enjoy complete freedom is on the pitch. I can't explain why France have only won one of the last five fixtures against Sweden. They're an experienced team, know each other well, and are full of quality players who play abroad. They never make it easy for you, especially here [on home soil]."
