Sweden seal Dutch date

Sweden will play the Netherlands in Stockholm on August 18 in the third of three international friendlies organised to celebrate the centenary of the Swedish football federation (SvFF).

An SvFF statement released on Monday said Sweden would play the Dutch in addition to the match against England in Gothenburg on March 31, while the country's women's team will meet neighbours Norway on July 24.

"The Netherlands means guaranteed high quality of opposition," Sweden coach Lars Lagerback said in a statement.

The England match will form part of Sweden's preparations for Euro 2004, where they have been drawn in Group C with Italy, Denmark and Bulgaria. The finals start in Portugal on June 12.

Cool, but I was hoping it would be played before the Euro tournament.
Yeah me too. I wanted us to play Sweden when the German friendly was cancelled.

Oh well. It'll be a nice change of face, seeing as we'll be up against the Czechs AGAIN by then for the WC qualification :rolleyes::D

I like Scandinavian football (well, not Norwegian so much). Plus, Sweden have many players I admire, especially Ibrahimovic. Lots of reasons to watch Sweden ;)

And I agree - you have a good chance of winning, especially since it's in Stockholm!

And we have a habit of sucking at friendlies :D
