Robin Olson has been the number one goalkeeper for Sweden since quite a long time. He will continue to play his role in between the posts. Although he is an AS Roma player, he is currently on loan at Sheffield United. Our experts don’t have any doubt that Olsen will be the first choice GK for Sweden in the upcoming WC. His alternatives will be FC Copenhagen’s Karl Johan Johnsson and Kristoffer Nordfeldt from AIK Fotboll.

Victor Lindelöf is the biggest name in the backline. The Manchester United center half, will not only be a regular starter in his position but also will be the key for the side. His partner should be Rangers FC man Filip Helander. However, Dalian Yifang’s Marcus Danielsson will also be a very useful option. Newcastle United full back Emil Krafth is the first choice right back after Mikale Lustig’s retirement from the international arena. On the other hand, Sevilla FC side back Ludwig Augustinsson will continue to play his role on the left part of the defense and will be a reliable option for sure.

Coming to the midfield, we highly expect the Swedish boss to go with a 4 men midfield. Serie A player Albin Ekdal who is currently playing at Sampdoria will be the first choice in the defensive part of the mid. His partner will be Anderlecht’s Kristoffer Olsson. The attacking part of the midfield will be occupied by two certain starters: Viktor Claesson and Emil Forsberg. Krasnodar man Claesson is a key player for the side but the most vital and crucial player will be Leipzig star Forsberg. He was the star performer for the side in the UEFA Euro and he has been superb in the qualifying stage as well. Much of Sweden’s success will depend upon his performance and the Swedish will hope that their star man continues to sparkle.

Up front, Alexander Isak will be the weapon upon whom the manager would expect goals. The Real Sociedad forward scored 17 goals during the 2020-21 campaign and is one of the most potential forwards in the La Liga. Isak should get Juventus’ young gun Dejan Kulusevski as his partner. Meanwhile, At Ettifaq FC’s Robin Quaison will be another handy option for the front line and is expected to start some of the games as well.
