Ham­ren:Vic­tory over Ire­land would be huge

7 Days in Dubai - - SPORT -

Swe­den coach Erik Ham­ren be­lieves vic­tory over the Repub­lic of Ire­land would give his side a great chance of qual­i­fy­ing for the knock­out stages of the Euros. Drawn in a tough group with Bel­gium and Italy, to­day’s game is vi­tally im­por­tant for both sides. “The team that wins this game has a very good chance of pro­gress­ing,” said Ham­ren. “Ire­land and our­selves are the un­der­dogs in our group, and we’re quite close to one another in the rank­ings. With re­gard to who is go­ing to win or lose, it’s quite open.” Swe­den face Martin O’Neill’s side in Paris, with kick-off at 8pm UAE time.
