After qualifying from the group stages alongside England, the Swedes were presented with a gilt-edged chance to reach the last eight when they lined up against Senegal.
“We should have done better in 2002 because many of the big teams had already gone out.
“We had a great chance. We thought we should beat Senegal and then it would have looked very open to advance to the semis. But it wasn’t to be.
“This time we have a chance as well, but it will be very tough and we will need plenty of luck.
“What we did in 1994 was unbelievable and I have my fingers crossed.”
