The cult World Cup teams we loved: Sweden 1994
Brolin, Andersson, Dahlin and Ravelli provided plenty of entertainment and a journey to the semi-finals.

Swedish team, with the baby-faced playmaker Tomas Brolin and the attacking exploits of Kennet Andersson and Martin Dahlin, who lit up America. The bulk of the side had already experienced a disastrous World Cup in 1990 where they failed to pick up a point and finished bottom of their group.
In the US, the Swedes seemed to have a bit of everything. They weren’t defensively resolute (they didn’t have a clean-sheet until the 3rd/4th place play-off against Bulgaria) but had a remarkable spirit about them. There was some terrific individuality mixed with the dependable double-act of Schwarz and Thern in the middle of midfield and up front, Dahlin and Andersson were a handful, offering moments of physicality and subtlety in equal measure.
