France vs Sweden preview
If France is already assured of their place in the final, they will no doubt want to end the group stage on a positive note against a struggling Swedish team.
That being said, it’s unlikely to be a big goalscoring party considering that half of the Blues’ eight strikes in the Nations League came in the 4-2 win over Croatia, as were two of the three. goals they conceded.
While Sweden have certainly struggled on both ends of the pitch, scoring just three times while dispatching nine, they can use more defensive tactics to try to clear what could be a valuable point against the world champions.
