Swedes' friendly fixtures cancelled
Sweden’s international friendlies against Russia and Cyprus later this month – which could have involved Newcastle United’s Emil Krafth – have both been called off because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Games that were likely to see the likes of Miguel Almirón, Fabian Schär and DeAndre Yedlin in action had already been cancelled coming into the week. However, the Swedes’ double header had still been scheduled to take place – albeit behind closed doors.
The cancellation of the two fixtures coincides with the announcement that the start of the Swedish domestic campaign – which was meant to kick off later in the spring – has been put back.
