MANCHESTER UNITED defender Victor Lindelof cannot explain why Sweden failed to qualify for the World Cup in Qatar.
Sweden were beaten 2-0 by Poland thanks to a penalty by Robert Lewandowski and Napoli’s Piotr Zieliński.

Sweden threw the kitchen sink to Poland and had most of the ball possession but failed to count any of their 12 tries that day.
Lindelof has expressed disappointment at not making the final and said the situation “crappy” when speaking to Swedish publication Fotboll Skanalen.
The Manchester United defender said: “There are two goals that we shouldn’t concede.
“It’s a penalty and we shouldn’t allow the second goal either. But that’s what happens, it’s football. But right now everything just sucks.”

Sweden reached the quarter-finals of the 2018 World Cup in Russia and have made it to every European Championship Lindelof has attended, but next year the Swedes will not be there thanks to Poland.
Lindelof also said: “I don’t know, it’s just sour. It felt like we had the upper hand against them. We even said that when we came in at half-time.
“We felt like we had the upper hand both physically and with the ball. But today wasn’t our day.”
Rising Manchester United youngster Anthony Elanga also featured in the game but failed to make any impact on the evening.
