The French need just a single point to progress against an already eliminated, yet tough, Swedish side that will have only pride to play for in their last match at Euro 2012 in NSK Olimpijs’kyj – Kiev. The audience in Kiev is expecting to watch a tough encounter as the group stages of the Euro 2012 come to an end.
Sweden may not be able to get a place in the last eight to fight for there will be a desire to at least bow out with a famous scalp not least for some of the ageing veterans such as centre-back Olof Mellberg, who is likely to retire from the national side after the finals. Swedish side is ready to show the same spirit and not a little skill as they did in the 3-2 loss to England to battle against the French in real terms.
Sweden has a FIFA ranking of 17. The Scandinavians' morale will have been given a timely boost when their star player Zlatan Ibrahimovic announced on Sunday he would not be retiring form international football despite the early exit. The probable Swedish squad include: Isaksson; Granqvist, Mellberg, J.Olsson, M.Olsson; Larsson, Kallstrom, Svensson, Wilhelmsson; Ibrahimovic; Rosenburg.
On the other hand, France are looking to end a six year pause of failing to qualify for the knockout stages of a major finals here on Tuesday to dominate Sweden in their Euro 2012 Group D’s final match. A draw will be enough for the French side to get through, regardless of what happens between England and Ukraine. But Laurent Blanc is quite positive that the much improved Gallic side will finish the group stage in first place, to avoid a last-eight showdown with Spain.
France is ranked 16 according to FIFA rankings. Match by match, France was able to drive out the memory of their disastrous last World Cup campaign. The probable line up for France include: Lloris; Debuchy, Koscielny, Mexes, Evra; M'Vila, Diarra; Ribery, Nasri, Menez; Benzema.
France could even lose and go through should England, who they lead on goal difference in the group with both on four points, beat co-hosts Ukraine in Donetsk.
