Question Can Sweden win the World Cup?

well why the fck not?

I mean Greece won Euro2004 in pretty much the same fashion.

The worst case scenario is that they face England and Croatia next...both are well-known choker nations and Sweden has no pressure to win.

Other possible opponents like Colombia or Russia are quite beatable for them in any normal day.

The final will be tricky of course...then again they did beat France in a qualifier a year ago.

Big games are easy than the other games, unfortunately. Every times we have the control the games, under the control the games, during the games we had the some possibilities, some big chances, some big okazyons, something like that but what can I do, sometimes? And….it’s the football, that’s the football, something happened. Everything is something happened. - Fatih Terim

Considering who the OP is, it's clearly not serious.

But I'm saying there is a chance

Germany, Italy and Brazil are the only countries that are allowed to win the World Cup.

There hasnt been a real suprise winner since what 1954? 1950? And even then we are probably talking at least dark horses.

Lots of suprising teams to reach the final and then lose though.

Anything is possible.

Except for Sweden winning the wc, that's sheer poppycock

Not if France or Brazil get to the final, Belgium on the hand are prone to choking.

A team that only scores through pks and own goals/deflections won't win anything.

They could beat England though

Honestly, just want to see a new winner, that's all. If Sweden or anyone for that matter can pull it off, it would be interesting. Especially in convincing fashion, preferably less own goals, penalties and deflections involved, etc.

Given how the QFs shape up in the tough side of the draw (Uruguay, France, Belgium, Brazil), from where the eventual champion is likely to come, at least one can't claim in the end that this will have been a cheap World Cup win, like in 2002.
