Sweden World Cup Preparations

Sweden will base themselves in Bremen; near the North Sea.

Sweden Team Hotel

Park Hotel, Bremen; where Sweden will stay during the 2006 World Cup Finals.
Park Hotel:
Im Buergerpark, Bremen.
With a well-deserved reputation for distinguished hospitality in a country house atmosphere and unique location on the edge of Bürgerpark, screened from traffic noise but still central, the Park Hotel Bremen is where Sweden will be staying during the 2006 World Cup Finals.

Hotels in Bremen:
Dortmund, Berlin and Köln aren't the nearest stadiums to Bremen but Swedish fans night think it worthwhile stopping near the team until the tournament gets underway. Bremen is a convenient stop for those travelling overland from Sweden to the first game in Dortmund.

Sweden in the 2006 World Cup

Svenska Fotbollförbundet
Group B

Trinidad & Tobago vs Sweden in Dortmund:
Henrik Larsson finally entered the referee's book in the 90th minute; not for a goal but for a challenge made out of pure frustration, as Sweden failed to score.

Sweden vs Paraguay in Berlin:
Just when it looked like Sweden were going to numb the world with another goaless draw, a cross from the right was headed back across the goalmouth, by substitute Marcus Allback, for Fredrik Ljungberg to head past Aldo Bobadilla; two minutes from time.

Sweden vs England in Köln:
Sweden once again refused to be beaten by England, a record dating back 38 years, and were unlucky not to win. After being totally out-played in the first-half, Sweden found weaknesses in England's defending set pieces.

Knockout Stage

Second Round
Germany vs Sweden in München:
A man sent of in the first-half and a missed penalty in the second just about summed up how badly things went for Sweden. Add two goals in the first twelve minutes for the hosts and elimination is not far away.
