Position:Joint coaches

Tommy Soderberg and Lars Lagerback are Sweden's joint managers.

Soderberg, 53, coached the country's Under-21s for three years before becoming senior boss in 1998.

His assistant for the European Championship qualifiers was Lagerback, who was promoted to joint coach for the tournament itslef.

The reason for his promotion was a successful qualification in which Sweden topped a group, including England, without losing a game.

The pair worked as a team throughout Euro 2000, but Sweden flopped with just one point from three games.

Critics began to question the partnership, but the Swedish FA kept faith and results in World Cup qualifying fully justified their decision.

They won their group after coming from behind to beat Turkey in Istanbul.

Lagerback, also 53, is regarded as the tactician with Soderberg said to be responsible for man-management and motivation.
