Sweden HAS to beat England says Kallstrom

Sweden must defeat England in their next group stage fixture if they are to progress at Euro2012.

They are the sentiments of midfielder Kim Kallstrom who was a part of the Swedish side which gave up a one-goal lead to lose 2-1 to co-hosts Ukraine in Kiev last night.

Erik Hamren's Swedes next meet Roy Hodgson's Three Lions on Friday and Kallstrom is aware that only a win will suffice.

"That is really our only chance of going further, I believe," said the Lyon star.

"We haven't got a lot left to lose anymore. Our joker is already gone. If you want to progress it's about winning matches.

"It's about stepping up now and hoping that we're more effective in front of goal. Then it can go well."
