England ended a 43-year run without victory over Sweden at Wembley in November
When England kick-off against Sweden, they will be looking for a repeat of the victory at Wembley exactly seven months ago, when Gareth Barry's goal - England's 2,000th - edged the win.
It was their first win against Sweden in 43 years and 13 attempts. The previous success over the Scandinavians came in 1968, also at Wembley. But that hoodoo was ended with a 23-minute landmark goal for the Three Lions, which appeared to come off the head of defender Daniel Majstorovic, but was credited to Barry.
Whether that result will give a hint to the outcome of the Euro 2012 meeting in Kiev we'll have to wait and see, but there have been numerous personnel changes in the last seven months. Not only have England got a new manager, Roy Hodgson, but eleven of the 22 players named in the squad that night are not in Poland and Ukraine.
For Sweden, only five of their squad from Wembley are not in Erik Hamren's set-up for the Finals, and they'll be looking to maintain their impressive record against England in competitive fixtures. Of the seven matches played in World Cup or European Championship Qualifiers or Finals, there have been two Swedish wins and five draws.
Overall, the nations have met 22 times, England have won seven, lost six with nine draws.
England boss Hodgson has also faced Sweden, the country where he started his coaching career in 1976 with Halmstad, on four occasions whilst in charge of Switzerland (three times) and Finland (once) and is yet to suffer defeat with two wins and two draws.
Take a look back at England's last win over the Swedes in the FATV player above as we prepare for match number 23 between two friendly rivals.
