Malmo 2018: Sweden reveal team for goalball Worlds15.05.2018
Hosts drawn in tough-looking Group A together with men’s Paralympic champions Lithuania
Under manager Florim Seremeti and assistant manager Zoltan Szabo, six players and two reserves will represent their country.
Most recently, Sweden just missed out on a medal at the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games, where they lost 6-5 in overtime to Brazil in the bronze medal match.
The team remains broadly unchanged from then and will be led once again by team captain Fatmir Seremeti. Stefan Gahne, Nils Posse and Mikael Akerberg also return after Rio.
Sweden will play Algeria, Argentina, Belgium, China, Turkey and Paralympic champions Lithuania in group A at the Baltiska Hallen and Baltiska Traningshalle.
First reserve: Dzenan Ajdinoviv
Second reserve: Johan Pettersson
