Germany vs. Sweden: Lineups

Germany have no less than seven Bayern Munich players in their lineup as they host Sweden tonight.

Manuel Neuer, Jerome Boateng, Holger Badstuber, Philipp Lahm, Bastian Schwensteiger, Thomas Miller and Toni Kroos all make up the contingent from the Bavarian club, which should at least give the side a sense of fluidity. Veteran Miroslav Klose will spearhead the German attack, while Per Mertesacker partners Holger Badstuber in central defence.

Sweden have opted for a 4-4-1-1 formation, with captain Zlatan Ibrahimovic playing just behind Johan Elmander up front, and Pontus Wernbloom and Samuel Holmen given the difficult task of maintaining control of midfield against Germany's trio.

Germany (4-2-3-1): Manuel Neuer; Jerome Boateng, Per Mertesacker, Holger Badstuber, Philipp Lahm; Bastian Schweinsteiger, Toni Kroos; Thomas Muller, Mesut Ozil, Marco Reus; Miroslav Klose

Sweden (4-4-1-1): Andreas Isaksson; Mikael Lustig, Andreas Granqvist, Martin Olsson, Behrang Safari; Sebastian Larsson, Pontus Wernbloom, Samuel Holmen, Rasmus Elm; Zlatan Ibrahimovic; Johan Elmander.
