Bizarre moment entire Sweden squad FLICK Newcastle star Emil Krafth in head in training ground punishment

SWEDEN and Newcastle right-back Emil Krafth was flicked in the head numerous times by his teammates during a Euro 2020 training session.

In a video posted on Sweden’s official social media accounts, the 26-year-old could be seen the subject of a unique punishment as the rest of the squad took the opportunity to humorously attack Krafth’s forehead.

The defender was left grinning after he had been punished by his teammates in a funny moment of messing around at the training ground.

Sweden are preparing for their final Group E game on Wednesday evening when they take on Poland at the European Championships.

James Andersson’s side have already qualified for the second round having picked up four points from their opening two games.

Sweden frustrated Spain to pick up a hard-fought goalless draw in their opening match.

And then they ground out a 1-0 win against Slovakia thanks to a second half penalty from Emil Forsberg.

Krafth came off the bench with 15 minutes to go against Spain and then came on in stoppage time at the end of the win over Slovakia.

Despite already having booked their place in the last 16, Group E remains up for grabs heading into the final round of fixtures.


Sweden currently top the group but could find themselves in third at the end of the night if results go against them.

The winner of their group will face a third place qualifier, while the runners-up will take on Croatia.

Andersson’s side have not lost in seven matches since they were beaten by world champions France back in November.

But they face the daunting task of trying to keep Poland and Bayern Munich sensation Robert Lewandowski quiet in their final group game.
