Sweden really has a great position, against what I think so far has been one of the weakest teams in the whole European Championship – Ukraine. They won a match, which was against Northern Macedonia. Weak against the Netherlands, even worse in the last group game against Austria. Richard Henrikson says that Sweden is better than Ukraine.
The match will be played in Glasgow, Scotland. Therefore, there will not be many Swedish fans in place. It’s because of the quarantine rules in Scotland. Swedes traveling to the country will be quarantined for 10 days. Therefore, it is perhaps only Swedes who actually live in the UK who participate in the match. The same rules apply to fans from Ukraine.
Swedish TV reporter He met Swedish fans after the match in St. Petersburg, Russia, last week. They are disappointed that they can not go to Scotland and see the last 16 tonight.
But will there not be Swedish fans in Glasgow?
– No, they can not get there. It’s impossible … or yes, if you’re in quarantine, but you do not have time to watch the match anyway.
How do you feel then?
– very sorry. Now that it’s really exciting here, you can not join and see it. We want to see all the matches we can. So this is very sad.
Here is what two Swedish fans had to say To Swedish Television, SVT.
