Information about Sweden team 2018


Sweden coach Eric Hammer has called on several players from the under-21 U-21 side to qualify for the first two friendly matches on Tuesday.

Hammrin said he was looking forward to the friendly match that will take place during the Swedish team with his hosts Turkey on 24 of this month and then the confrontation with the Czech Republic five days later.

The Swedish team will meet Turkey and the Czech Republic in preparation for the team's tour in Euro 2016 in France.

Hammerin said he was not only looking at the readiness of the key elements of the European championship but also trying to put the players to some tests through these two matches.

Hamrin has 24 players on the Swedish team, led by veteran striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic of Paris St Germain.

The newcomers include promising defender Victor Nelson Lindelov, 21, Benfica defender Ludwig Augustenson, and Johannis Hopf, a 28-year-old Turkish goalkeeper.

The list also included Hamburg midfielder Inter Ikdal after recovering from a foot injury.

Sweden play in Group E in Euro 2016 next to Ireland, Belgium and Italy.

The Swedish striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who is opposed to his team-mate, is facing a desire to join his country at the World Cup hosted by Russia in June and July.

Arsenal goalkeeper Carl Johann Johnson, who is likely to be Sweden's goalkeeper, is opposed to Ibrahimovic's participation in the World Cup because he believes he will "disrupt the balance of form."

"We have qualified and reached the World Cup without him, and I think we can play well in Russia too, without the need for his services," Johnson told the Mirror newspaper.

"It's up to the coach if he wants to join us. I'm sure that if he joins us he will play very well with us."

"As a team we play as a group now, all the players are playing together, two singles as a player and a person, and the game will be played around. Instead, we are playing more collectively."

"It's a different way when you have a player like him, like Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi, because they are world-class players."

"You have to use these players to win and play in a special way, I do not know if the coach wants a big change, because he will have to change the entire system."

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has hinted in more than one statement over the past few days that he will play Sweden at the World Cup next summer.

Sweden, Germany, Mexico and South Korea are also in Group F.

The German newspaper Welt published a report on the controversy between Swedish coach Jan Anderson and Swedish star Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Anderson is very angry at Ibrahimovic, saying he is the only person qualified to select the squad, while he will not call the Swedish star, who has refused to join the national team in the past.

The newspaper said in its report, "Arab21", that the Swedish coach, Jan Anderson, on several occasions expressed his anger at the star Zlatan Ibrahimovic. During the 2018 World Cup in Russia, the Swedes will be in a difficult group, including both the German and Mexican national champions, as well as South Korea.

The newspaper said that the Swedish team will play a friendly match tonight in the city of Craiova against the Romanian team. Before the match, coach Anderson and retired striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic returned to the fore. "I have not contacted players who have previously refused to join the team," the Swedish coach said. "There is no doubt that I am the coach and the only person qualified to determine the squad," Anderson said.

Anderson's comments were tense, suggesting that the coach had entered into a dispute with the best footballer in Sweden's history. Perhaps the most interesting thing is that the Swedish team qualified for the 2018 World Cup led 
by Leipzig striker Emile Fochbri, without the participation of star Ibrahimovic.

The Spanish national team is one of the leading candidates for next year's World Cup in Russia, and Jolene Lobetigi is in charge of the La Rioja team.

Julien Lobetigi took charge of Spain in July 2016, inheriting a heavy historical legacy - a team that won the European Cup and the FIFA World Cup for the first time in the country's history.

To start after the line of the Spanish team to retreat and landing and to be evident in the last three international tournaments.

The 51-year-old coach has exceeded all expectations in just a year and a half since sitting on the bench.

Spain returned to the elite world, and became one of the strongest candidates in Russia 2018.

In an exclusive interview with FIFA, he spoke of the four most important issues in dealing with La Rioja, which he said were keys to the team.

Looking to the future

"Spain has won a lot of titles recently, it is good to look back to that golden age and thanked the best generation in Spanish football and one of the best generations through the ages, but all this is forgotten.

Now, some of these players are left along with other young people, and we try to mix generations, but without falling into the trap of comparison.

We are confident in the rising players, in their abilities, in their quality and in their ambition. We have to let them go their way. "

• Process change with a lot of communication

"It is clear that the process of change is not easy and is punctuated by accurate details, and we try, above all, to speak clearly with the players, to transfer the style of football we want and restore confidence, we had to make the necessary changes to strengthen the team.

We are well aware that what we have achieved in the qualifying stage does not guarantee us anything at all, just as in the past: the Spanish team, which won great titles, did not guarantee anything.

Here's the only thing that guarantees you something football is playing during the competition, and we have to be prepared for it. "

• Adapt tactics with players
"The current team cannot play in the same way as the past, simply because there are no similar teams, they are different groups, with players who have subtle differences.

That is why we have tried to enhance the virtues of the players, adapting them to our way of understanding the game to be competitive, organized, fierce and ambitious.

The big team must be able to respond to different situations with the knowledge that the best response is to strengthen your strengths, that's what we tried to do, play our style and then be able to adapt to each situation without losing the essence of what makes us stronger. "

• A new generation with a winning mentality

"Many of the players from this new generation were playing under my command in the youth teams and then burned the stages, and thanks to natural development, some of them accompany us in this adventure.

Esco, for example, is a player who has managed to impose himself in Real Madrid. This is not easy, he is only 24 years old, he has an outstanding talent and a big margin for improvement.

ISESCO and other players gained the experience of winning titles at an early age and were able to develop this ambition.

"The players who have won the youth categories have added value in their minds. This is not an indispensable condition, but it is a positive thing, because the player can resort to these experiences in critical times, and we hope he will benefit from them."

The draw drew the Spanish side alongside their neighbors Portugal in addition to each of the teams of Iran and Morocco, in a group classified by experts as the strongest group in the World Cup.

Russia is dependent on veteran goalkeeper Igor Akiniviev, who has a frantic pace in international matches. At the 2014 World Cup, Aquiniv failed to catch an easy lead to a 1-1 draw with South Korea, a result that helped Russia out of the group stage without a win.

In the following report, we present the strengths and weaknesses of each team in the first group:

Local Russia

The Russian national team is the only team that has not qualified for the tournament because it has only played a number of friendly matches.

Russia's Stanislav Cherchisov, who led a major change in the team, is taking over the disappointing 2016 European Cup.

strength point
Cherchisov has adopted a new style of play, relying on a new combination based on analysts in the Russian league, abandoning a large number of stars and well-known players such as Sergei Ignacovic and Vasily Perezotsky.

The Russian coach has introduced many new faces, such as Viktor Vasin, defender of CSKA Moscow, Ruben Kazan defender Vyodor Kordashov and Spartak Moscow's Georgi Dzikia.

He also appeared strongly during the famous Russian friendly matches, Alexei and Anton Miranchuk, Moscow Lokomitiv player, and young star Alexander Golovin, midfielder of CSKA Moscow.

Weaknesses
