Sweden's preparations for their Euro 2022 quarter-final against Belgium have been dealt a blow after Hanna Glas and Emma Kullberg tested positive for Covid-19.

The Blagult finished top of Group C with seven points after drawing with Netherlands but beating Portugal and Switzerland, finishing ahead of the Oranje on goal difference.

But they will be without two defenders after Glas and Kullberg returned positive tests, and the duo will be monitored ahead of potentially rejoining the camp later in the tournament.

Bayern Munich's Glas has played every minute of Sweden's Euros campaign thus far, though Brighton's Kullberg has not yet featured for them this tournament.

Sweden take on Belgium at Leigh Sports Village on Friday evening, and if they are victorious will face England or Spain at Bramall Lane in Sheffield in the semi-finals.
