‘Sweden have the upper hand – I say 60/40’ – the view from Sweden

As Ireland prepare to kick off their Euro 2016 campaign against Sweden in Saint-Denis today, eyes will naturally be drawn towards the irrepressible Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Yesterday’s pre-match press conference saw the cocksure striker declare himself “a legend” who “always delivers” and pronounced himself pleased that Roy Keane agreed he was a genius.

A couple of other faces – Sunderland’s Sebastian Larsson and former Arsenal midfielder Kim Kallstromg perhaps – may be familiar to most, but for the most part this is not a star-studded line-up.

Extratime.ie reporter Dave Donnelly caught with Michael Wagner of Swedish daily newspaper Aftonbladet to discuss the prospect facing Ireland from Erik Hamren’s slightly less cautious than usual outfit.

“This is the last tournament for the Swedish manager Erik Hamren – he quits as national head coach after the Euros,” says Wagner.

“Since he started in the autumn of 2009, he’s had some big games where it more or less took him five-six years to find out what kind of style and tactics he should use with Sweden.

“Because when he arrived, he took over from Lars Lagerback, the coach who is now the manager for Iceland, and Lagerback was extremely successful bringing Sweden to consecutive Euros and World Cups.

“But he did it with a kind of play that was not entertaining – it was risk-elimination. He would take as few risks as possible, always with nine or ten on the right side of the ball. That kind of defensively, very strong football, building on the team.

“When Hamren took over it was with an ambition to play more entertaining, technical football, more short passes.

“But he lost some big games, for example in the first qualification phase away against the Netherlands – I think it was 4-1 in Amsterdam.

“They had a 4-0 lead, and after the first half it was 3-0. They were badly punished by the Dutch at that time.

“There have been quite a few bumps on the road, until Sweden played in the play-off against Denmark in November.

“Sweden want back to the basics of Swedish football, that made Sweden successful in the 2000s, and also what made IFK Gothenburg successful in the ’80s when they won the UEFA Cup twice.”

Nevertheless, Wagner has words of warning for anybody expecting a more defensive Sweden to nullify the threat of their star striker.

“If you look back on those six years under Hamren, his legacy will be what happens in this Euros, but the one thing he did was that he finally made Zlatan Ibrahimovic perform really well in the national team.

“He was the head coach who made Zlatan captain, he was the head coach when Zlatan scored four goals against England, the opening game at Friends Arena in Stockholm, and he was head coach when away in Germany when Sweden turned it around to a 4-4 draw in World Cup qualification.

“There are some big memories with Hamren as well, and the biggest memory is that Zlatan has made some spectacular games. He has become the best goalscorer ever for Swedish national team.”

Sweden’s final friendly before the Euros saw them run out easy 3-0 winners over Wales.

While the Welsh were without Gareth Bale for the first 60 minutes, the Swedes’ technical superiority was obvious as they forced Wales to cough up possession time and again.

Bale was back in situ on Saturday, scoring in a 2-1 victory for the Welsh over Slovakia, but the ease with which Sweden played around them should serve as a warning for optimistic Irish fans.

“What you saw against Wales was Sweden adapting to an opponent who was perhaps a little bit weaker.

“They had to play that high and play that type of optimistic football. But when they play a stronger opponent, they go back more compact with the defence.”

One player who impressed against Wales was midfielder Emil Forsberg of recently-promoted Bundesliga side and modern football proponents RB Leipzig.

The creative midfielder has a good understanding already with Ibrahimovic, and he opened the scoring with a beautifully-taken shot from Ibrahimovic’s lay-off.

“He has had a very good season with Red Bull Leipzig in the 2.Bundesliga, but he has been their outstanding player. They were promoted to the Bundesliga for next season.

“Leipzig had a lot of offers from big clubs for Forsberg, and obviously there is a chemistry between Forsberg and Ibrahimovic also.”

Kallstrom and long-serving goalkeeper Andreas Isaaksson will retire after the championships, and both are important players in the spine of the team, having come through the ranks alongside Ibrahimovic.

“With Isaaksson it is funny – he was born the same day, the same year as Zlatan. They are exactly the same age.

“And Kim Kallstrom has played with Zlatan through several of the Swedish underage teams. They have had parallel careers all the way.

“Kallstrom had a good career – he was a big star in the Swedish league, then Rennes, Lyon, Spartak Moscow, he had his short, very strange story with Arsenal.

“In the national team, they have had some funny arguments, Zlatan and Kallstrom, but they have a very respect for each other.

“Kallstrom has provided Zlatan with several important assists during the years.”

Much will depend, then, on how Ireland approach the game, as O’Neill’s side have shown at times an ability to put their foot on the ball and dictate the play, but more often find themselves working without the ball.

“I suppose Ireland will keep the trademark that has made them successful for this qualification, to play more direct football, more counter-attack, the fast ball for Shane Long, Jon Walters or Wes Hoolahan.

“That means Sweden could have the ball more if Ireland allow Sweden to have the ball more, and if Sweden is good enough to keep the ball more.

“I think Sweden will have the ball and pass it around, and Ireland will shrink together, have a tight defence and go on the counter-attack with Shane Long or Jon Walters. That’s what made Ireland successful in this qualification.

“And also the set-pieces of Robbie Brady – I think they are fantastic. I mean, the left foot he has… with the corners and you have your really strong headers.

“You have your counter-attacks and your set-pieces, and that’s really important in modern football. That makes Ireland very effective.”

Wagner is particularly cautious when it comes to the aerial prowess of Long and possibly starter Shane Duffy, and it’s no coincidence he picks out Robbie Brady as the main creative threat.

It will be a particular challenge for Sweden as, gone be the days of Patrik Andersson and USA ’94, Sweden haven’t produced many stereotypical tall, physical defenders in recent years.

“Sweden haven’t had that strong kind of defence as they used with Olof Mellberg, with the defence they had in the ’90s with Patrik Andersson, Joachim Bjorklund, when Sweden won the bronze in the World Cup of 1994.

“Now they are getting back on the track with Andreas Granqvist from Krasnodar, who is the main man in the defence. You have this new guy, Victor Nilsson Lindelof from Benfica, who is one of these under-21 gold medallists.

“He has had a big breakthrough in Benfica and is playing in the Champions League. I think they should have it.”

“But I’m warning because I’ve seen Shane Long, what kind of shape he is in now and what type of self-confidence he has. It’s a tricky game.

“I think based on the individual qualities of Ibrahimovic, and one or two other players like Forsberg, Sweden have the upper hand in this game, but not by much.

“If I say 60-40, it could end up in which direction you want. It’s not as if Sweden is clear favourite in my mind.”
