Midfielder Kim Kallstrom, who picked up an ankle injury with Sweden in midweek, is in the squad.

"He is suffering from a minor sprain on his left ankle and knee," Marseille said on their website.
Cheikh M'Bengue will play his last match of the campaign when fourth-placed Toulouse travel to Caen on Saturday after the defender was suspended until the end of the season for a violent tackle on Monaco's Alejandro Alonso.
The French league said the sanction would take effect on Monday.
Sochaux midfielder Stephane Dalmat, charged with assaulting his wife and a policeman earlier this week, could feature against Stade Rennes on Sunday.
"He will play if he is better than others," coach Francis Gillot told sports daily L'Equipe's website.
"I don't want to penalise the whole team. He made a mistake but it's his private life."
Dalmat has been stripped of the captaincy and fined by the club.
Paris St Germain's Zoumana Camara will miss Sunday's home game against Nice after his suspension was extended from one to two games by the French federation following an appeal by the defender.
Camara, sent off against Marseille last month, was sidelined for the 4-1 defeat at Toulouse two weeks ago.comments
