It's commonly used here too, but it's not really correct. It's like everyone would believe that Scandinavia and the nordic countries are the same, or British Isles, United Kingdom and Great Britain are all the same. Oh, some people already do. But it won't make me accept it. :shifty: Yes, Sweden played in EC and WC. Not next year though. But we never succeed. I can't recall when we did reach the quarter finals the last time, nor went really far in the tournament. Not since WC 1994. Speaking of juniors, I think Sweden have quite many talented and good juniors. The problem is that they barely get the chance to play for our national team. As the coach usually want the older and more experimenced players to play the games. Escpecially important games. Whenever it's training/friendly games some juniors may be used as the "better" players often tend to decline as they would like to play for their clubs instead for the national teams.
