Whilst there's no outstanding names in that list, they've kept something like seven clean sheets on route to this tournament and had a very difficult group. Given @Teso dos Bichos much publicised criticism towards Mexico, I wouldn't be surprised to see Sweden get out this group.

Sweden was always tough to play against, and even despite all the changes in the squad after the Euros, they have a good team that is very disciplined, works well together and has a good mix of hard, tough players like Granqvist and technically gifted ones like Forsberg. They might lack options in attack, but they have been very effective in front of the goal so far. Knockout stages is definitely a possibility.

I had Korea to get out of the group, but after seeing Sweden last night, as well as SK just being underwhelming in every single game, I now think the Swedes will get through.
