Erik Hamrén has confirmed his 23-man party for the European Championships.

The Swedish manager has called upon a vastly experienced squad, playing all around Europe, with only three of the group being based in their home country.

Hamren has opted to include Celtic's Mikael Lustig as well as free agent Markus Rosenberg.

He has also called on Al-Hilal's Christian Wilhelmsson; one of only two players at the tournament to play for a non-UEFA country, the other being Robbie Keane.
