Man City youngster Guidetti earns first Sweden call

Manchester City striker John Guidetti has earned a first call-up to the Sweden squad.

The 19-year-old has become a cult figure in Rotterdam with Feyenoord fans launching a campaign to keep the striker beyond the end of this season.

He will now get a chance to build a reputation with fans in his homeland with a place in the squad for next week's match against Croatia.

"I think he clearly deserved it with the performances he has shown at club level," coach Erik Harmen told the Swedish Football Association's website.

"I see John as the front forward, either alone in a 4-2-3-1 or as one of two."
