World Cup 2018 Football Predictions Group F – Sweden

Many football onlookers were surprised to see Sweden claim their slot at the upcoming 2018 World Cup, especially in place of the usually dominant and widely admired Italian national team.

Now, without a certain Zlatan Ibrahimovic stealing all the headlines among Janne Andersson’s determined outfit, Sweden approach their summer World Cup duties with a whole new team ethic woven within their side.

 

Will Sweden qualify from World Cup Group F?

This team will be forced to show their worth straight off the bat in Russia. Whilst the task of defeating Germany among their opening Group F encounters may prove somewhat unworkable, Sweden must be aiming to produce the goods against both Mexico and the buoyant South Koreans.

Janne Andersson’s side arguably lacks a great deal of real star quality running through its core, but if Sweden can maintain their excellent organisation and work ethic among the 2018 World Cup in Russia this summer, who knows just how much this team can go on to achieve?

 

Who will be Sweden’s star man at the World Cup?

Several well-versed first team regulars could begin to impress for Sweden this summer, including Ludwig Augustinsson, Marcus Berg and Manchester United’s Victor Lindelof.

The recently acquired Red Devils defender has so far failed to establish himself at Old Trafford of course, yet there is seemingly nothing stopping the 23-year-old centre-back from continuing his strong international form at the 2018 World Cup.

In RB Leipzig’s Emil Forsberg however, Sweden play host to one of the most talked about players currently operating on the European scene. The up and coming midfielder possesses great vision all across the park, enjoying a rather keen eye for goal in addition to his excellent passing skills. He is a player that could be linked with bigger clubs after the World Cup.

Looking at the latest World Cup tips for this summer, people seemingly envisage a great deal of success for Forsberg among the upcoming competition. Even if Sweden ultimately fail to qualify from the 2018 World Cup group stages, expect the in-form midfielder to find himself the subject of increased transfer speculation this summer.

 

What are Sweden’s Group F fixtures?

World Cup 2018 Group F fixtures

South Korea – Sweden must produce a strong performance among their opening Group F face-off. If they are to really build upon their strong qualification form as well as their burgeoning potential, Sweden cannot afford to come up short against the South Koreans. This is a must win fixture for Janne Andersson’s side.

Germany – Perhaps Sweden can theoretically write this match off in favour of their remaining Group F opposition. Germany will be operating as one of the strongest sides among the entire tournament, so regardless of what happens here, Sweden must keep their heads held determinedly high.

Mexico – This is where things could begin to turn rather tricky for Sweden. They must be looking to claim all three points off Mexico this summer, but as the Central Americans possess a great deal of pace among their starting XI, Janne Andersson’s side could possibly come unstuck when defending those all-important counter attacks.

 

Sweden’s World Cup Tips and Predictions

Overall, Sweden certainly have enough about them to turn a few heads at the 2018 World Cup in Russia. Word Cup betting tips highlight Janne Andersson’s team as a side capable of achieving successful qualification from Group F, admittedly with just a little bit of luck on their side.

Whilst many have previously written Sweden off in light of their alluring lack of international pedigree, this is an outfit who usually remain decisively tight at the back, as well as possessing the crucial ability to find the back of the net right when it matters most. We can therefore expect big things from Sweden this summer.
