Ireland vs Sweden Live Streaming Info: EURO 2016 Score; Match Preview – IRE v SWE Prediction 13th June: It is the first match day of the UEFA Euro 2016, and it is Ireland playing Sweden at the Stade de France in Paris. Both teams are in Group E with Belgium and Italy, who are yet to play a game. (Watch: Spain vs the Czech Republic.)



 

Ireland has never gone past the group stages of the Euros before as they did in 1988 and 2012 and Martin O’Neill’s team would surely want to improve upon that as they start their campaign against Sweden today. Their all-time top scorer is Robbie Keane, who will be playing in the tournament.

The Republic of Ireland made their major tournament debut in 1988, and they defeated England there. Jack Charlton helped them qualify for the next two World Cups, the first one in Italy where they reached the quarters and then in their third World Cup in 2002.

In 2012 they reached the Euros but was eliminated in the group stages as they lost all three matches in a tight group. They qualified for their first major tournament in the 1988 UEFA European Championship, opening their campaign with a memorable 1-0 win against England thanks to Houghton’s early header.

They then held the Soviet Union 1-1 and Charlton’s side were only just edged out for a semi-final place in West Germany by an 82nd-minute goal for the Netherlands. Ireland missed out on the final tournament in 1992 and lost the playoffs to Netherlands and Turkey in 1996 and 2000 respectively.

They were able to finish third in their qualifying groups for both 2004 and 2008 but made the 2012 finals, beaten to an automatic place in Russia, they defeated Estonia in the play-offs.

Sweden’s best result in the Euro campaign has been semi-finalists in the 1992 Euro and their all-time top scorer Zlatan Ibrahimovic with 62 goals will be playing in this tournament. They won the Bronze medal in the 1994 World Cup, but they have failed to qualify for the last two World Cups, but they have reached the last five UEFA European Championships.
