Pontus Jansson called up by Sweden

Skipper heading off with nation for qualifiers next month

26 August 2020

Pontus Jansson has been named in the latest Sweden squad for Nations League A games against France and Portugal over the coming international break.

World Champions France are up first on Saturday 5 September with European Champions Portugal to follow three days later. Both games will be played at the Friends Arena in Solna, kick-off 7.45pm UK time. 

Pontus has appeared 23 times for his nation, captaining them on three occasions. He featured three times in Euro 2020 qualifying as Janne Andersson's side booked their spot in next summer's finals.

It's will be a tough ask for The Swedes with 2018 World Cup runners-up Croatia joining the reigning World and European Champions in League A Group 3.
