Sweden have announced their 23-man squad ahead of the 2018 FIFA World Cup, which is set to kick off in Russia next month.
"Every fourth year there is the World Championships, we take out troops quite often otherwise, but this squad may be four years for the next time to take out - if you are with. That makes the dignity of it become much more emotional to me, either bring someone or do not bring someone.

"That means so much more for a football player, of course, than usual for the withdrawal of troops. It's because you've founded extra, extra careful on everything, so it is."
Swansea defender Martin Olsson has made the squad, while Hull City's Seb Larsson has been selected as well.
But Crotone midfielder Marcus Rohden apparently left Andersson with the hardest decision to make.
"We want a midfielder who can also play centrally in order to cover up there, both tactically and if we were to get injuries and shutdowns," the manager explained.
"It's good to have some players in the squad that can play in multiple positions. Therefore, we have chosen to take Marcus Rohdén as the fourth outfield champion."
