The Swede's have been drawn in Group F alongside Germany, Mexico and South Korea after coming through a qualifying play-off against Italy.

Jansson and company will kick off their World Cup campaign against South Korea on June 18, 1pm in the city of Nizhny Novgorod.

Sweden will then face holders Germany on June 23, 7pm in Sochi before taking on Mexico in their final group fixture on June 27, 3pm in Ekaterinburg.

Andersson's men are 4/7 to exit the tournament in the group stages and are a whopping 150/1 to take home the Jules Rimet trophy.

Jansson will be hoping to feature during the competition and remains an outside bet to see any minutes as third choice centre-back but could have played his way into contention after strong showings in the warm-up games.
