Sweden looks for answers after loss to Ukraine

Like many Ukrainians, Sweden coach Erik Hamren was up for most

of the night following his team’s 2-1 loss to the co-host at the

European Championship.

While the home supporters were celebrating in Kiev, Hamren was

sitting at the team hotel watching video footage of the game until

4:30 a.m. and trying to pinpoint where things went wrong. With a

must-win game against England coming up in just four days, Hamren

knows he has precious little time to find answers.

Hamren said Tuesday that he was surprised and disappointed by

the Swedish performance, and that ”we had maybe four or five

players who played at the level I expected in the first half. The

rest didn’t.”
