UEFA has mixed up Sweden's attacking and defensive midfielders. I don't see why Wikipedia should display anything but de facto lineups. This time it's probably an error made by UEFA's web staff, but it could as well be a false lineup to confuse the opponent, should Wikipedia then show the false lineup or the actual one used during the game?

The official lineup image shows Andersson playing in a more advanced position than Svensson. It may not have been "attacking midfield", but according to this press release it was definitely further forward than Svensson's position. – PeeJay 08:07, 11 June 2008 (UTC)

Spain not secured first place?[edit]

I believe Spain has secured first place because if Sweden win against Russia and Spain lose against Greece, Spain and Sweden would be tied on points, but Spain would still be first because of head-to-head records, wouldn't they? Radical3 (talk) 19:27, 14 June 2008 (UTC)

They have not secured first place, not even second place until Greece fail to win over russia.
This is Greece beating russia and Spain by 2-0 while Sweden beat russia...

Reina, not Casillas[edit]

The Greece-Spain graphic shows the wrong goalkeeper. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:07, 18 June 2008 (UTC)

Russia-Sweden too, it seems that russian goalkeeper is mistaken with the greek. BloodIce (talk) 22:35, 18 June 2008 (UTC)
