Sweden was lucky to last to the shootout... I

m very disapointed with the swedish coach who cant seem to cool the boys down and keep them playing " as usual". Hopefully they wont be as nervous in the final since they will be huge underdogs and maybe they wont play as horrible as they did the second half.
Don't get me wrong, I've been very impressed with Sweden considering how they have had such success minus their best players. That's a fair observation, saying that Sweden would beat everybody 5-0 with those guys is something else.
