The selector of Sweden, Janne Andersson, has stated this Saturday at a press conference that Thursday’s “defeat” in Georgia “was a severe disappointment but you have to start from scratch” to try to be in it Qatar World Cup, a goal that makes it “easy to let go of discomfort.”

Andersson claimed to have “a plan to win” a Spain that “tends to have a lot of the ball”, so their players must “be very close.” He warned that “if the draw were worth it, he would face the game in the same way, although” he has worked “with different scenarios for” tomorrow’s meeting “.

The Scandinavian coach believes that he leads a “strong group that knows how to encourage itself” thanks to “the ability to leave behind what happened in other games”, so he is “clear that there will be options” to win the game, for which Sweden will have to “take advantage of the opportunities” that are presented to them, “just like in the home game”.

Andersson does not see himself, therefore, “defeated in advance. The idea is to win”, although he knows that “In the worst case, there will still be a second option to go to the World Cup”, but he has not yet put himself in that position because he has “confidence” in the ability of his team to “threaten any rival”.

“I have decided the line-up, no one was injured in the last training session, but I don’t want to reveal if Ibrahimovic will play the 90 minutes or not. He is here because he wants to contribute the maximum to his team, “concluded the Sweden coach.

Lindelof: “We usually play well against teams like Spain”

Viktor Lindelof, defender of Manchester United English, has warned this Saturday at a press conference that his team, Sweden, usually “play well against teams like Spain”, so he predicts “a very tough game” tomorrow at La Cartuja, after which he hopes to “qualify directly for the World Cup.”

Sweden is obliged to win in Spain so as not to play the play-off due to their defeat on Thursday in Georgia (2-0), after which, Lindelof acknowledged that Scandinavian footballers were “in a bad mood but the mentality has already changed” and he considers that they are “prepared to play a decisive match” in which the “key will be to remain calm and not think about responsibility” for the stake.

“Thinking about the previous game never gives me anything, I always try to win, although the feelings before this type of game are stronger. To win, I think we have to create enough opportunities and not think about the obligation to score a goal”, the Swedish central commented.

Lindelof, who received hate messages after the defeat in Georgia, ignore “social media threats”, something on which “it is not worth spending energy” and that does not “affect him at all” because he is “used to reading quite negative things”.
