Manchester City boss Sven Goran Eriksson is happy to hear of Andreas Isaksson's excellent form for Sweden during the week.

Eriksson told City's website: "There have been problems with fog at some airports today as well, all of the other players should have been back now, but some are late. Andreas is still in Stockholm and is waiting for his flight.

"I know Andreas played in both games and did rather well from the reports we have. He should have been back here by 9.30 this morning but he's not, and I know that because Hans Backe's on the same flight! They are sitting together and talking football, but I don't know when they are arriving."
