Sweden

EURO 2013: Semi-finals

EURO best: Winners (1984)

How they qualified: Group 4 winners, W7 D0 L1 F22 A3 Pts2

Coach: Pia Sundhage

One to watch: Lotta Schelin (forward, Rosengård)

What to watch out for: The Swedes are often polar opposites to Norway, tipped heavily before a tournament only tofall short (hence surprise losses to their neighbours in the 2005 semis and 2009 quarters). But following a 2011 World Cup bronze, they have found a new toughness since Sundhage returned from the United States to take charge prior to the 2013 finals on home soil.

Only an epic 1-0 semi-final defeat by Germany denied them a dream decider against Norway, and Sweden took a further step forward when they ground down both the US and Brazil to make the 2016 Olympic final. Though Germany took gold, Sweden had shown their ability to steer a knockout course, though losing their last qualifier in Denmark cost them top seeding in the EURO draw.
