Another Sevillista has completed his duty for his national team during the international break. Ludwig Augustinsson and Sweden came up against Greece in Athens on Wednesday. The left-back yet again was part of the Swedish starting XI, but failed to get the win this time. This means that there is no room for any mistakes if they want to seal first position in the group to guarantee automatic qualification for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
The Greeks took the lead in the second half thanks to goals from Bakasetas and Pavlidis, and although Quaison pulled one back at the end of the game, Sweden came away empty-handed. They remain in second place, four points behind Spain, who continued to show their dominance against Kosovo. Sweden have two games in hand, but one of those will be against Spain away from home in November.
