Hamren names Sweden squad for Turkey, Czech Rep friendlies

Sweden national team coach Erik Hamren has announced the squad that will represent the country in the March friendlies.

Blagult face Turkey on the road on 26 March before playing host to Czech Republic three days later in the first warm-up games for the Euro 2016 finals.

Head coach Erik Hamren has now unveiled a list of 24 footballers that will be in contention to play in the March international friendlies.

As expected, Benfica centre-back Victor Nilsson Lindelof earns his first call-up after impressing for the Eagles, but Mikael Antonsson has been left out.

Genclerbirligi goalkeeper Per Johannes Hopf is another uncapped footballer in the squad, with the including of FC Copenhagen left-back Ludwig Augustinsson another surprise.

Rasmus Elm, however, continues to miss out despite the good run of form, with Ola Toivonen and Jonas Olsson also missing out.

Following the March friendlies, Sweden will face Slovenia and Wales in the final warm-up games, before they take on Republic of Ireland, Italy and Belgium in Group E.
