The Poland vs Sweden live stream will see another European team book its place in the Qatar World Cup 2022 finals — but which one it will be is anyone's guess.
These two sides are very evenly matched; when they met at the delayed Euro 2020 tournament just under a year ago, the Swedes ran out 3-2 winners, but only thanks to a 94th-minute winner from Viktor Claesson.
They should be helped in their quest to reach a second successive World Cup Finals by the presence of the talismanic Zlatan Ibrahimovic, although he's only on the bench today, having not featured for AC Milan since January. The veteran striker is now 40, and this surely represents his last chance to play on the world stage.
"A World Cup without Zlatan is not a World Cup," Ibrahimovic said in typically understated style.
Sweden reached this stage by beating Czech Republic 1-0 in extra time last week, whereas the Poles were given a bye to this round having been drawn against the now-expelled Russians. Instead, Poland played a friendly against Scotland and were able to rest several of their star players, including Robert Lewandowski.
He'll be back today and is clearly the man Sweden will need to be most wary of; he's already notched 50 goals for club and country this season.
Here's how they line up:
Poland: Szczesny, Bednarek, Glik, Bereszynski, Belik, Moder, Goralski, Cash, Szymanski, Zielinski, Lewandowski.
Sweden: Olsen, Augustinson, Danielsson, Lindelöf, Krafth, Forsberg, Karlström, Olsson, Kulusevsky, Isak, Quaison.
The winner of this match will officially confirm their place at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, while the losers will have to wait another four years. Find out which one qualifies by watching the Poland vs Sweden live stream, which we will show you how to do below.
