KIEV, JUNE 15 (AP/UNB) - Johan Elmander will return to Sweden's starting lineup for the European Championship match against England, one of three changes made by coach Erik Hamren from the opening loss against Ukraine.
Elmander only played the last 20 minutes against Ukraine having just recovered from a right foot fracture, but will replace Markus Rosenberg up front against England on Friday.
Hamren also shuffled his midfield and will bring on Anders Svensson to partner Kim Kallstrom in the middle, with Rasmus Elm moving out to the left wing and Ola Toivonen dropped to the bench.
In defense, Jonas Olsson will play center back, with Andreas Granqvist moved out to right back in place of Mikael Lustig. Assistant coach Marcus Allback said Lustig has a hip problem.
