Prospects for the European Football Championship 2004

Sweden squeezed past Latvia, Poland and Hungary in the qualifiers.  At face value that does not look like Championship form. Whereas Alan Shearer has retired gracefully from English international football, the Swedes cannot make up their mind about Henrik Larsson's participation. International footballers should be able to play anywhere, but I cannot help feeling that players from Scandinavia will be at a disadvantage come Portugal in blazing June.  If my theory is correct this could let in Bulgaria. Qualified 1964, 1992, 2000
