Swedes not in the mood to roll over

18 June 2012 03:17

Sweden may have no chance of qualifying for the quarter-finals having lost both their games thus far but if France are expecting an easy ride into the last eight they are in for a shock on Tuesday.

For coach Erik Hamren and the players the pride factor apart there are different things motivating them.

"Tuesday's match is important for Sweden and for other sides," said Hamren. "I want to see the same professionalism that the players have already shown here. We want to win the match.

"I believe that we can keep on working along the same lines and get closer to being the team that I want it to be.

"We have done many good things but the great teams know how to attract luck. We are not there yet."

"I will not need to motivate the players, maybe just help them a little."
