West Brom defender Olsson: Tomorrow night will be massive in Sweden

West Bromwich Albion's Swedish defender Jonas Olsson says their clash with England will be massive back home.

He knows that the scrutiny will be even greater in what is a "special game" for Sweden at Wembley.

Olsson told the Telegraph: "English football is massive in Sweden. They started showing English football in the Seventies and every Saturday you would tune in and watch it on telly. You could even say English football is bigger than the domestic league - my friends all support teams in Sweden but they are more passionate about the team they support in England. For me it has always been a dream to play at Wembley."
