Something bold and surprising, like including a young talent such as Kim Kallstrom instead of Daniel Andersson in midfield.
Or maybe giving Jesper Blomqvist a final fling on the world's biggest football stage.
It didn't happen.
In fact, Expressen had another question: "Who do you miss the most in the World Cup squad?"
The clear winner was the only player to hear the negative message from the coaches on his answering machine - Everton's Blomqvist.
In contrast, Svenska Dagbladet asked readers to let them know who Lars-Tommy should not have picked.
Daniel Andersson was the most (or least) popular choice.
The storm of football enthusiasm in Sweden, supposed to peak in Japan in June, is at most a light breeze now.
