Norway's shock loss against Slovenia earlier on Saturday put pressure on Sweden ahead of the decider in the Nations League.

For Blågult – who are now last in group 4 – it is important to have Slovenia behind them in the final table to stay in the B division.

This means that Sweden will meet Slovenia in a directly decisive match for relegation at the Friends arena on Tuesday.

The loss against Serbia, 1-4, means that Sweden must now win against Slovenia in order not to slip out.

Blågult otherwise had a dream start away against Serbia, where Viktor Claesson made it 1-0 after a quarter.

But it didn't get any more fun for Sweden.

Fulham star Aleksandar Mitrovic responded by scoring twice before the break, then completed his hat-trick at the start of the second half following video review.

With 20 minutes left in the game, Torino midfielder Sasa Lukic made it 4-1.

- We are not good enough.

It's not more difficult than that, says Emil Forsberg to Viaplay and continues:

- We don't play a good enough match.

It's not good enough.

We make it easy for them, lose the ball easily and concede far too easy goals.
