TV Info: Ten Sports Network has the rights to stream UEFA Euro Qualifiers matches in India.
This match comes 25 years after these two nations produced an unforgettable World Cup quarterfinal match which the Swede went on to win on penalties. That was the time when Romanian football was on the up and matching those lofty heights will take some efforts from the current crop of players.
But the visitors are in good form having gone 12 games without tasting a defeat. They also finished their UEFA Nations League campaign unbeaten, finishing 2nd in League C.
Sweden also finished their UEFA Nations League campaign strongly as they topped the group ahead of Russia and Turkey. With two wins and draws, they remained unbeaten as well.
The Nations League campaign capped off a very good 2018 for the Scandinavians. They had a very good World Cup in Russia, making all the way to the quarterfinals where Engaldn stopped their juggernaut with a 2-0 win in Samara.
Now the country turns its attention towards the Euro 2020. The first target is to qualify for the competition which they should, considering the quality that this football-mad country has.
However, it’s easier said than done as the group they are in also has Spain and local rivals Norway in it. While there can also be some surprises along the way, and Romania are more than capable of doing that.
