Gerrard: We can beat the Swedes

Published Add your comment

Skipper Steven Gerrard is confident England will finally gain their first win over Sweden in a competitive match if they emulate the performance they gave in their Euro 2012 opener against France.

England have failed to overcome the Swedes in seven previous World Cup or European Championship encounters ahead of Tuesday's Group D clash in Kiev, but Gerrard is adamant that sequence should end, even allowing for the threat posed by Swedish striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Gerrard said: "I would think the same level of performance against France will be good enough to beat Sweden."
