"The main thing is that Sweden get a point," Brolin told the TT news agency. But it's dangerous to go out on the field thinking you just need to manage a draw.
"We need to attack like we did against Nigeria."
Jonas Thern, now a coach in the Swedish Allsvenskan, also thinks Sweden can get three points in their last group match.
However, he doubts whether the current Sweden team can progress as far as the team of 94.
"That would take a lot," Thern said. "The whole team would have to be at the top of their form - and it wouldn't hurt if somebody stood out like Brolin did in the USA.
"Ljungberg, Svensson and Henrik Larsson are very skilful players, but they are not of the same calibre as the Brolin of eight years ago."
The public are buoyant and the newspaper columnists have revised their doom and gloom pre-tournament predictions.
"Sweden have one point more than Argentina and another psychological advantage: they are on a positive run," the Svenska Dagbladet newspaper says.
"It looked bad in the friendlies in the spring, but the last three halves have given Swedish football a new and pretty fearsome look."
Another national newspaper, Dagens Nyheter, lists seven reasons why Sweden will defeat Argentina and then writes:
"It has been a strange journey from the mediocre friendly against Japan 15 days ago, via the promising World Cup opener against England a week ago to the sometimes brilliant match against Nigeria."
However, the same newspaper curiously teaches its readers how to say "Quit, Lars and Tommy" in Japanese and Korean on its website.
