The kickoff between England and Sweden has been delayed 15 minutes to 3pm ET due to the temporary suspension of Ukraine-France. Hopefully the weather in Kiev will be more dry than the rain-soaked Donbass Arena.
England team: Hart Cole Lescott Terry Johnson Young Parker Gerrard Milner Welbeck Carroll
Sweden team: Isaksson; Granqvist, Mellberg, Olsson (J), Olsson (M); Svensson, Kallstrom; Larsson, Ibrahimovic, Elm; Elmander.
Needless to say, both teams need to win this match. A win for England will put them into the driving seat for their last game against Ukraine. Sweden, meanwhile, will be more desperate to pick up points after losing against Ukraine. This is a battle between two sides who know each other quite well. Let’s hope it’s a good result for England.
