SVEN Goran Eriksson must take on his homeland's national team again after England were drawn against Sweden for next summer's World Cup.
But David Beckham and company will be generally relieved with the result after avoiding the most dangerous sides for the group stage of the tournament.
England, the second seeds, must face Paraguay and Trinidad & Tobago as well as Sweden, with whom they drew 1-1 during the 2002 World Cup.
The team will play Paraguay on June 10 in Frankfurt and Trinidad & Tobago in Nuremburg on June 15 before taking on the Swedes in Cologne on June 20 for Group B's showcase match.
