DONETSK, UKRAINE - JUNE 10: Andy Carroll of England during a UEFA EURO 2012 training session at the Donbass Arena on June 10, 2012 in Donetsk, Ukraine.

Sweden (4-4-2): Andreas Isaaksson; Andreas Grandqvist, Olof Mellberg, Jonas Olsson, Martin Olsson; Sebastian Larsson, Anders Svensson, Kim Kallstrom, Rasmus Elm; Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Johan Elmander.

England (4-4-2): Joe Hart; Glenn Johnson, John Terry, Joleon Lescott, Ashley Cole, James Milner, Steven Gerrard, Scott Parker, Ashley Young, Danny Welbeck, Andy Carroll.

Chelsea interests: Former captain John Terry and left back Ashley Cole.

England have never beaten Sweden in competitive play, and frankly, they need to win to put their Euro 2012 fate in their own hands. A loss would put them on the brink of an exit, fourth on one point, behind France on four, and Ukraine and Sweden on three. To advance with a loss, they'd need to beat Ukraine, and hope for a victory in the other match, preferably for France. Even a draw would require them to win to overhaul Ukraine and make the knockout stages, where they'd probably face and lose to Spain.

Anyway, enjoy the match!
