The Swedish Football Association has dismissed coach Janne Andersson after he failed to lead Sweden to Euro 2024. Despite their 2-0 victory over Estonia last night, Sweden did not qualify for the tournament after finishing in third place in Group F with only ten points out of a possible 24. This left them ten points behind the leading Belgium and nine points behind second-placed Austria.
Andersson had been in charge of the Swedish national team since the summer of 2016. During his tenure, he led the team to the quarter-finals of the 2018 World Cup and the round of 16 in Euro 2020. However, they subsequently failed to qualify for the 2022 World Cup after losing to Poland in the play-off final and have now missed out on Euro 2024 as well.
The decision has left the Swedish Football Association searching for a successor to the 61-year-old Andersson as coach.
