Sweden defeated Poland 3-2 after a late decision by Viktor Clisson. This means that Blågult has won their group and is ready for the Round of 16.
There, they face Ukraine, who finished third in their group, at Hampden Park in Scotland on Tuesday.
But it doesn’t look like there will be many Swedish fans at the match, given the fact that a ten-day quarantine is required when entering Scotland.
– It is very sad that a play-off in the European Championship will be played without so many Swedish fans. Albin Ekdal says the planning is bad to put him in a country where no one else is allowed into, and continues:
We can only hope that the Swedes who live in Glasgow will come. I would have liked to see a lot of Swedes in the stands.
Victor Claison agrees:
– First of all, it is sad that we do not have as many fans as we want. It’s sad that there can’t be the same rules everywhere when it’s the European Championship, as people can’t have the same opportunities to participate in all matches, he says.
Mikael Lustig, who previously played several seasons at FC Glasgow, Celtic, previously stated that Sweden would not bring any fans to Scotland.
– They will definitely be fans. There are many Swedes in the UK. I hope they get there. On Monday, Lustig said I had several friends in Glasgow who could work it out.
Call your friends, do you have a whole yellow wall?
– We also solve it. Probably yellow in Glasgow.
Hampden Park receives 25 per cent of the stadium capacity in the European Championships, which means 12,000 spectators.
The Round of 16 final in Sweden will be broadcast on Tuesday on TV4 and C More, and can be watched over here.
