Sweden Vs. France, Euro 2012: Lineups

Sweden and France dropped slight surprises into their lineups, though Sweden have already been eliminated from the tournament, so nothing should be considered too shocking. Johan Elmander and Markus Rosenberg haven't done the job up top, so Emir Bajrami comes in as a winger, moving Ola Toivonen into the center. He'll probably play behind Zlatan Ibrahimovic, but both can fill the No. 9 or No. 10 role. France have dropped Yohan Cabaye and not Alou Diarra for Yann M'Vila, who has recovered from an ankle injury. They also dropped the superb Jeremy Menez for Hatem Ben Arfa in a surprise switch.

Sweden Lineup (4-2-3-1): Andreas Isaakson; Martin Olsson, Jonas Olsson, Olaf Mellberg, Andreas Granqvist; Anders Svensson, Kim Kallstrom; Emir Bajrami, Ola Toivonen, Sebastian Larsson; Zlatan Ibrahimovic

France Lineup (4-2-3-1): Hugo Lloris; Gael Clichy, Adil Rami, Philippe Mexes, Mathieu Debuchy; Yann M'Vila, Alou Diarra; Franck Ribery, Hatem Ben Arfa, Samir Nasri; Karim Benzema

Kickoff is at 2:45 p.m. ET from the Olympic Stadium in Kiev, Ukraine. You can catch the game on ESPN 2 in the United States.
