World Cup: Sweden ready to Saturday’s match with Germany

Playing before a pro-German crowd doesn't matter either for Larsson, a 34-year ex-Barcelona veteran who also was on the 1994 and 2002 World Cup teams.

Sweden rallied from one goal down twice to get the draw Tuesday, extending its unbeaten streak to 12 games since 1968 when England was world champion.

Lagerback has a lot of respect for Germany, which won all its A games against Costa Rica, Poland and Ecuador.

Lagerback, whose team drew Trinidad and Tobago and edged Paraguay in the other group B matches, agrees with Larsson that the pressure will be on the German team, according to the AP.
