Checked some results from Nike Premier Cup, which is a big international U15 club tournament. For the past 3 years, the Swedish teams have finished 20th, 12th and 10th of 20 teams in the Euro finals, which doesn't have teams from the bigger countries from what I've gathered.

In the past 10 years, only one Swedish team has made it to the World finals and they finished 10th in 2005 tournament: http://www.footjuniors.com/NPC/World_Final_05.html
