Sweden started playing international football in 1908, and in the same year lost a game at the Olympics to Great Britain 12-1. Undeterred by this early disaster, Sweden has gone on to have a distinguished record of appearing in twelve World Cups and six European Championships. They came close to becoming one of the smallest-ever countries to become world champions when they finished runners up when hosting the 1958 World Cup (they lost to Pele's Brazil in the final). They have featured in many World Cups since but never gone beyond the quarter-finals. They finished 3rd in the European Championships of 1992 and have been a consistent presence at every Euro since the year 2000. Famous players to have worn Sweden's blue and yellow shirts include Tomas Brolin, Henrik Larson, Freddie Ljungberg, and Zlatan Ibrahimovich. Here at New Vintage Football we have re-created the best kits of the Swedish national team.
