After being runner-up in the Nations League (with controversial goal against included), Spain He will not play any more games in this international break, but in a way he ‘plays’ the Sweden-Greece that will take place this Tuesday (8:45 p.m.) in Solna. The Red leads group A of this qualifying phase for the World Cup Qatar 2022 with 1 point and 4 advantage over Sweden and Greece respectively, but it does so having played one more match than the two mentioned teams. In other words, at this point in the movie, Spain, Sweden and Greece they maintain options and therefore depend on themselves to reach the happy ending of occupying the first place of the group at the end of the group and taking the only direct qualification place to Qatar 2022 (the second will go to the repechage). Therefore, surely Luis Enrique and his family will be very aware of what happens tonight in the Friends Arena in a duel that is not at all friendly despite the name of the venue in which it is played.
Still absent Ibrahimovic, the great hope of Sweden in attack is the txuri urdin Alexander Isak, who already ‘wet’ last Saturday in the 3-0 against Kosovo with a great goal. It will be accompanied by Emil Forsberg, but not for Dejan Kulusevski (Juventus), a key player for the Nordics who will be out due to the accumulation of cautions for this momentous match. His place will be taken by the always reliable Quaison.
As to Greece, without big stars although trusting in his goalkeeper Vlachodimos, arrives at this meeting having sweated the fat drop last Saturday to overcome Georgia. They won 0-2, but with goals in 90 ‘and 95’.
Honor at stake
Sweden-Greece also at 8:45 p.m. another meeting of this group A takes place. Specifically, it will be in the Fadil vokrri from Pristina where they are measured Kosovo and Georgia, that although aware from the beginning that the classification was a chimera they fight not to occupy the red lantern of the group. When the faces were seen in Georgia, beat Kosovo by 0-1 and therefore the Kvaratskhelia and company will have the spirit of revenge.
