Watch Holland vs Sweden european championship live

Holland will be sweating it over the injury concerns of midfielders Wesley Sneijder and Mark Van Bommel prior to tonight's crucial match against their main rivals in Group E, Sweden, who haven't been beaten in their previous matches. Holland are racing away with 3 wins out of 3 and a win over the Scandinavians will see them sitting pretty at the top of the group.

Whilst Sweden are without any injury concerns going into the match, Holland coach Bert van Marwijk has to cross his fingers Sneijder and Van Bommel can feature in the match."Sneijder was forced to pull out of training today. I don't have any details but he couldn't finish the session,'' said Van Marwijk."Van Bommel still has a sore knee but I hope he can play.''

A win over Sweden would see them open a six point gap between the two teams but Van Marwijk knows the team will have to dig deep to turn over Sweden. "Sweden are very good opposition, we have a lot of respect for them and they have many qualities,'' he continued. Ball tempo is an important detail for us, we want to contain them but at the same time get our own passes in quickly.They are big and strong and their height advantage is also a weapon for them."

The Swedes have a 100% defensive record in the group conceding none and they have netted 8 times in their previous 2 matches. That momentum is surely going to test Holland and the Swede striker Ola Toivonen, who plays for dutch club PSV Eindhoven, has offered help to his team-mates on how to beat goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg when they come up against him. "I've had several chances against him and every time he's come out early and dived low, so if you keep your cool you can chip him or shoot high into the net,'' Toivonen explained. "He is a very good goalkeeper, unbelievably good on his feet. As long as you're looking at the ball, he'll rush out and suddenly he's there in front of you and that makes it tough to get a shot in. If you try not to look down at the ball and keep a cool head, he'll throw himself down and you can lift the ball over him."
