Sweden statement

Janne Andersson said ahead of the match against Greece: "Greece has played two different styles. First 4-2-3-1 in March, where they were actually a little bit light on Spain in the way they played. Now they've started to play more 5-3-2 and then they've become a little bit straighter and tighter. Depending on how they choose to play, we may see two different Greek teams, regardless of what it is for us to be able to handle both sides. It will be important to read how they play when the game starts."
