Swedish media believes this and spins on and on about it to get clicks and sell single copies. Because virtually all Swedes check out the net copies of Aftonbladet and Expressen. Swedish media's trash-talk is mainly X paper in X country says this about us, so we have to come up with something back.
Also I find it hard to believe people in Finland do not rather win over Sweden and talk about them than Slovakia. USA is probably reasonable though as Finland and USA match up in every single tournament it seems. I don't think Finland is that big a deal for us but I would lie if I said Slovakia was just as big, and they just sent us home in the Olympics..
