Swedish coach Lars Lagerbäck was already waiting to hear if key pair Marcus Allbäck and Tobias Linderoth would be available and could now be forced to change his defensive lineup as well after the Villa centre-back limped out of training. "It looked like a very nasty hit so we had to take him off and cool down the injury. It's too early to say how severe it is," Sweden physio Anders Vallentin said.
