Sweden managed to win their first World Cup game against South Korea thanks to a penalty converted by Andreas Granqvist but Ludwig Augustinsson believes that Emil Forsberg is the man who will decide the upcoming games.

The Scandinavian team are about to face Mexico and Germany in their final two games and these matches will decide about the final standings – and Forsberg should be the main key to success.

The Werder Bremen full-back spoke about the RB Leipzig winger as he said, according to bundesliga.com:

“Forsberg’s a very good player. He’s one of the guys that plays at the highest level in the national team. He’s had some really good seasons with Leipzig. He’s really important and does these extra things, like Zlatan. He can decide games. Forsberg has done it for us in some games, it’s really important to have one of these players.”

“Sweden are a very compact team. We work so hard for each other – everyone knows what to do. When we press, we press together. In attack, we have qualities to play. We scored goals in qualifying, but we need to show this more often. We’re very good defensively, and very smart in attack.”
