Victor Lindelof has Euro 2020 in his crosshairs after arriving with the Sweden squad for the finals.

Lindelof left the Sweden team bus with a Call Of Duty gaming case, personalised with his name on it.

The Manchester United defender joked he had ‘left home with the essentials’.

Tournament football can be testing for players if they are away from their families and cooped up for long stretches.

Playing video games at the team hotel is one way the squad can unwind and bond together. Sweden have been bolstered by Zlatan Ibrahimovic coming out of retirement for the tournament.

Lindelof’s Sweden are in Spain for the opening game of Group E. They take on David de Gea’s Spain on Monday 14th.

 

After that Sweden fly out to Russia for the final two group games, where they take on Slovakia, and then Poland.

That third fixture will be a very testing encounter for Lindelof as he takes on free scoring striker Robert Lewandowski.

No wonder he is looking to distract himself by playing Call Of Duty.
