EURO 2016 : Sweden vs Republic Of Ireland Match Preview

Sweden face Republic of Ireland in the opening match of EURO 2016’s Group E at the Stade de France in Saint-Denis on Monday.

Ireland have again qualified for a major finals, but Martin o’Neill’s side will be looking to improve on their performance from last time, when they were eliminated from the group stages without winning a single match.

While, Sweden might not be one of the best team in the tournament, but they have the “Zlatan” factor working for them.

EURO 2016 is probably the last big international competition in his glorious career and the Swedish captain will be looking to sign-off in style.

Republic of Ireland
Probable line-up: Randolph; Coleman, Keogh, O’Shea, Brady; Walters, Whelan, McCarthy, Hendrick; Hoolahan; Long.

Sweden
Probable line-up: Isaksson; Lustig, Lindelof, Granqvist, Olsson; Durmaz, Kallstrom, Hiljemark, Forsberg; Berg, Ibrahimovic.
