Hamren:Victory over Ireland would be huge
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.
