Sweden boss Hamren urges England to focus on themselves

Sweden manager Erik Hamren has implored the England team to worry about the things that they control ahead of the final Group D matches at Euro2012.

The eliminated Swedes may play a weakened side against group leaders France tomorrow night, which may have an effect on the Three Lions' quarter-finals hopes, but Hamren feels that it shouldn't.

"Make sure you win yourselves," he said when asked what England need to do against co-hosts Ukraine. "That's the best thing.

"They can concentrate on themselves and we'll concentrate on our own game. Our ambition is to get a good performance and a good result."

England sit second in their group, equal on four points with France, and one point ahead of tomorrow night's opponents Ukraine whilst the Swedes sit on the bottom with two losses from two outings.
