thumbnail Hello,

The Scandinavians will welcome back the PSV forward who did not feature in the loss to England as another Eredivisie player comes into the side for their last Group D fixture

Erik Hamren has announced his Sweden side that will face France in their final game of Euro 2012.

The Scandinavians are already eliminated from the tournament after suffering two defeats in as many games and will start with their third different striker against Les Bleus in the form of Ola Toivonen.

Having only just returned from a foot problem, Johan Elmander will not be used as Hamren looks to avoid any unnecessary injuries with his team already eliminated.

Elm also misses out through injury and, having played against England from the left in the previous game, will be replaced by Twente's Emir Bajrami.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic will continue in his role behind the striker and the experienced 35-year-old Anders Svensson holds his position in midfield.

Hamren has elected to maintain the same defence that started the 3-2 defeat to England in their previous game and thus Mikael Lustig is consigned to the bench.

Sweden (4-2-3-1): Isaksson; Granqvist, Mellberg, J. Olsson, M. Olsson; Kallstrom, Svensson; Larsson, Ibrahimovic, Bajrami; Toivonen.
