Sweden have qualified for the 2018 Russia World Cup after dramatically beating Italy 1-0 to book their place at the expense of the 2006 World Cup champions following their two-legged play-off tie. This shocking turn of events has been considered the shock result of the entire World Cup qualifiers. Confidence is high in the Swedish camp and they have nothing to lose at the World Cup in Russia this summer.
Sweden are currently in a transitional period due to the retirement of star player Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Speculation surrounding his return has been highly disputed, not as popular as people would expect, Sweden will most probably be hoping to cement a new generation of players in the senior squad lead by their new captain Andreas Granqvist. Stars like John Guidetti, Emil Forsberg and Marcus Berg will be looking to step up to the mantle and steer Sweden into a new direction.

Sweden made hard work of their qualifying campaign, but have ultimately made the cut after claiming a 4-3 aggregate win over Denmark in the play-offs. This left the Swede's delighted, meaning Sweden Euro tickets are on sale now for the biggest tournament of the summer.
Finishing third in group G behind Russia and surprise winners Austria. the Swedes drew their Scandinavian neighbours, Denmark in the playoff round. A typically dominant display from captain Zlatan Ibrahimović was enough to seperate the sides, producing 3 of his country's 4 goals over two legs to seal qualification., Sweden overcame the Danish resistance and can celebrate a spot among the final 24 competing in France this summer.
In Sweden's ten Euro Qualifiers they managed to win five of their matches, with three draws and two defeats. Erik Hamren's men began their qualifying campaign with two 1-1 draws against Austria and Russia, beore claiming a 2-0 victory against Liechtenstein. Sweden remained unbeaten after four games with another draw against Montenegro. However, in the return fixture a Zlatan Ibrahimovic brace sealed a 3-1 victory over Montenegro to keep Sweden's qualification hopes alive as he scored two of his 11 goals in the qualifying round.
However, damaging defeats to Russia and Austria put Sweden's hopes in doubt as the top two teams in the group began to build a lead over their rivals. Victory for Sweden in their final two games over Liechtenstein and Moldova was not enough to secure a top two finish, as Ibrahimovic's side had to settle for a third place play-off position.
Can Sweden make the knockout stage, or perhaps go even further? With Zlatan's insatiable desire to succeed, their captain may just take them further than most think possible. With the Euros only happening every four years don't miss this chance to guarantee seats at Euro 2016 with Sweden football tickets on sale now.
One word, Zlatan. This man is one of the greatest strikers to play the game and a Swedish national idol. Some things he does on the pitch are truly astonishing. Whether it's a cheeky back heel goal, smashing in an incredible volley, powering home from 40 yards or producing spectacular over head kick goals, Zlatan and his box full of tricks never fails to surprise! Fans coming from the homeland with Sweden Euro 2016 tickets have a little bit of a trip, but Zlatan is playing in his own back yard having been in France now for 3 years at Paris Saint-Germain. This tournament we expect to get the best out of Zlatan who has very occasionally gone missing in big games at club level. We don't think this will be the case at Euro 2016 and all football fans would be glad to see Ibrahimovic and Sweden progress after it looked like they were going to miss out.
Zlatan fits the bill here as well! His countries hopes are resting on him to deliver something spectacular to drag them through. All those with Sweden ticket holders will be ecstatic if they can reach the quarters or dare we say further. Zlatan has never failed to score a heap of goals wherever he has played making him a candidate to take home the golden boot. His scoring record for Sweden is impressive, over 60 goals in total and he will be hoping to add more to his tally this summer. Neutrals will be hoping 'Ibra' has a cracking tournament too. With all the big stars performing at their best we could be in for an entertaining tournament
Sebastian Larsson is a player that often looms in the shadows of Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Everything is about Zlatan. This is almost better in a way for Larsson who can quietly plug away putting in good performance after good performance and helping the team to secure their victories. No fuss, no nonsense which is exactly the way he likes to play. Larsson will be key to Sweden, he will be tasked with providing the ammunition for Zlatan, especailly from set-pieces where he in essence can dictate how good a tournament Zlatan has. Should the service be good, Sweden can make some head way this summer.

We would still class Alexander Kačaniklić as being young and certainly he is a potential star for Sweden. He's made a good start to his career being involved with the national team and playing for Fulham from a very young age. Sweden will be expecting him to take some more responsibility in matches now and produce more game changing moments. Kacaniklic has made 19 appearances for his national team scoring three goals and he will be hoping to add more to his record in France. It will be interesting for us all to see how he fairs when Euro 2016 commences in June this summer.
