St. Petersburg, July 2 (IANS) Sweden’s national team held a training session on Monday ahead of their upcoming 2018 FIFA World Cup clash against Switzerland in the round of 16 on Tuesday.

The entire Sweden squad, minus suspended midfielder Sebastian Larsson, will be available for the match at St. Petersburg stadium, with Larsson’s likely replacement to be either Gustav Svensson or Oscar Hiljemark, reports Efe.

Larsson was suspended after seeing two yellow cards in Sweden’s last two Group F games.

Sweden won their group on goal difference after beating Mexico 3-0 on June 27 in their third and final group match, with both teams qualifying for the knockout stages.

If Sweden makes it into the quarterfinals, the Blue-Yellow are to face the winner of the Colombia-England match later Tuesday.
