Pride at stake as Germans hunt revenge in Sweden

Share  ·   print   ·  

With only pride at stake for Sweden and Germany in Tuesday’s World Cup qualifier, the Germans come to Stockholm to settle a score following last year’s dramatic draw in Berlin.

The final qualifier is meaningless for both sides with Germany already confirmed as Group C winners while second-placed Sweden face a two-legged play-off.

Erik Hamren’s (picture) Sweden are chasing a confidence-boosting win while the Germans have a score to settle, after throwing away a four-goal lead as last October’s World Cup qualifier in Berlin ended 4-4. The draw proved to be the only points dropped so far in Germany’s qualifying games for Brazil and Joachim Loew’s team are chasing their ninth win from 10 matches on Tuesday.AFP
