Sweden vs. England Picks: Three Lions Take Three Points: The England soccer team now knows that it is at a crossroads here in Ukraine Euro 2012. The Three Lions know that they can be in a position to perhaps even win this tournament if they can get three points from this fixture at Kiev Olympic Stadium, though they know that they are going to have a tough task coming against Sweden, a team that has all sorts of potential to do some real damage to some of the best in the world. Don’t miss our England soccer picks against the Swedes for Friday afternoon!

England has just one point to show for its first match, and it wasn’t the prettiest match to say the least. Now though, there is a great chance for the club to take three points here going into the last match with Ukraine next week. The Brits would control their own destiny if they were able to get the job done in this one, knowing that they would be likely be just a draw away from getting into the knockout rounds at that point. Sweden would be eliminated if it were to lose this match though, so you know that the boys in yellow and blue are going to be trying their best to make sure that they at least have something to be playing for on the final match day of the group stages next week.

Sweden has a heck of a lot of infighting going on right now with its squad. The team is largely unhappy with the unorganized defensive effort that came in a 10-minute stretch against Ukraine that saw the club give up two goals very, very quickly to Andriy Shevchenko. If there is a man that can save the day though, it is Zlatan Ibrahimovic. He is the best man on this Swedish team and has been for at least a half dozen years or so. Ibrahimovic was able to bag the opening goal in the match against the hosts from Ukraine, but all of a sudden, matters just fell apart after that. Things don’t look good right now, but there has to be some growing confidence with the defense that perhaps this would be a much easier task against a team that doesn’t have its stars or the hometown crowd behind it.

Had you told Manager Roy Hodgson how badly his team was going to be dominated in the opening fixture against France from a statistical standpoint, he certainly would have taken the one point from the fixture. The Three Lions were really a wreck on both sides of the pitch. France had 19 shots, 15 of which reached Joe Hart, who may as well have been the man of the match. There was nothing that he could have done about the goal that Samir Nasri scored for sure, and even though Les Bleus had the share of the possession at 60%, Hart never cracked again. Joleon Lescott had the only shot that reached the target for England, and it happened to end up in the back of the net. There were just three legitimate attempts at goal the entire match for the Motherland, and obviously, there just wasn’t enough in the way of possession to make a big time difference.

Sweden vs. England Match Preview & Analysis: England is still going to be without Wayne Rooney in this one, along with a host of other players that are injured, but the club feels like it has some swagger about it. It almost has to feel like the Brits are relieved just to have a point, and now they can settle down and actually play some footy. The Swedes just don’t feel like a team that is going to get much more to show from their work in this tournament, and we think that it is a gift to know that we can get the English at plus odds. They should get the three points from this match at least half the time, and that’s good enough for us even though this is a team that we still don’t have the utmost confidence in.
