Sweden Provisional Squad has been selected by the head coach Janne Andersson and all the players are playing for an away club. The squad has 23 players for the World cup 2018.
On Tuesday Anderson said “I can only pick 23 players for the World Cup. How much I wish I could bring 24 or more. It’s been very emotional for me, as I have called the players who didn’t make the squad. It was hard.”
