Our prediction for this Euro 2024 match:
Sweden will be looking to make amends for a shocking 3-0 loss to Azerbaijan when they take on Estonia in their last group game. The Swedes are having a qualifying campaign to forget and, no doubt, they will try to give fans some cheer on Sunday afternoon. All Krafth, Claesson, and Quaison are pushing for a start after the trio came off the bench in the Azerbaijan defeat, while Newcastle United striker Alexander Isak remains in the recovery room.
The Estonians, on the other hand, failed to upset star-studded Austria on Thursday, with the team remaining in the ultimate position in Group F with only one point on their account. Given Estonia’s shaky defence, we do not believe that Sweden will have a better chance than this to return to winning ways. There are no fresh injury worries in the visiting team ahead of the trip to Solna.
Highlighted Team (Sweden):
Sweden are the most successful Nordic side on international stage having been present at major competitions since 1934. Blagult missed out on the 1952 World Cup trophy on home soil as they were beaten by star-studded Brazil side, while they finished in third place at the 1950 and 1994 tournaments, and finishing fourth on their second appearance in 1938.
As far as their European Championship record is concerned, Sweden also achieved their best result in front of home fans, reaching the last four in 1992, and they have since reached the quarter-finals at Euro 1994 in Portugal.
Anders Svensson and Thomas Ravelli are team’s most capped players with over 140 appearances each, but it is strikers Henrik Larsson and Zlatan Ibrahimovic that will go down as the most famous Swedish footballers in history. The later also leads the goalscoring charts with over 60 strikes for the national team and he is widely regarded as one of the most colourful characters, not only in Scandinavia, but in world football.
