Mellberg Looking At Second Spot
Villa and Sweden skipper says second will have to do!
Olof Mellberg thinks that Sweden are in a battle for the runners up spot after only drawing in their opening match v Trinidad & Tobago. As he faces Paraguay tonight, the defender is being realistic:
'In a way, we are playing for second because of the results in the first round of matches. I definitely expect England to beat Trinidad & Tobago so that means we will have to look at second place in the group. But we'll have to see ? it's such an important game and we know we need to get a result. That's imperative.'
He was also asked about an 'incident' with Fredrik Ljungberg and said quite simply: 'Apologise to Fredrik? For what? Anything that happens in the dressing room, we want to keep to ourselves. It was impossible in this case but you try to keep things in-house.'
