Sven Goran Eriksson: Sweden would be so happy to draw with Germany

The former England manager Sven Goran Eriksson can’t help but get excited about the fortunes of his native land and has some strong words for Neymar…

Sweden’s next game huge against Germany. The pressure on the Germans is so big after their loss in the first game to Mexico.

That will be a fantastic football match because Germany need to play. I am really looking forward to it.

It’s so difficult to score against Sweden. Italy tried in the World Cup playoffs and many other teams failed. Will Germany lose two games in a row at the World Cup though?

It’s difficult to imagine that, but pressure is a funny thing.

Back the World Cup at

Mexico killed them on the counter attack. They should’ve scored more. To be fair, Germany could’ve scored too. But, it was a huge surprise, no doubt.

They are one of the big favourites and you would not expect them to go out in the group stage.

Meanwhile, Sweden were better than Korea for the whole game. The goal came late from the penalty, but they put in a solid performance.

I hope – because I am Swedish – that Germany cannot come back after this loss. However, it’s hard to believe they would lose again.

Sweden would be so happy with a draw!

Naughty Neymar

I said before the tournament that Brazil should win this World Cup because they have the best squad, the best players, but I must say when I saw them I was not impressed.

They played well for a few minutes against Switzerland, but many of their players didn’t perform.

They have one of the best players in competition in Neymar, but he was very poor too.

His attitude was not good. He was very loose with ball and the way he dribbled with it.

He is a player who should win the World Cup for Brazil, but the performance against Switzerland was not good enough.
