– As always when you step into a tournament, there is a lot of focus on the first match and now it will be a good challenge to face the number one United States directly, Says league captain Peter Gerhardson on the Football Association website.
Sweden has a silver to defend the tournament in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 2016. The soccer tournament begins already on July 21 and will be the first sport to graduate. The games start on July 23.
The lottery cannot be influenced, and at the present time it is difficult to say what is good or not. Of course, there are three good opponents waiting, but from a logistical standpoint, it looks like it would be a good plan, says Gerhardson.
