Sweden take on Austria on Monday night in their first Euro 2016 qualification game.

The two sides will play in the Austrian capital, Vienna.

Star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic is due to reach his 100th cap, after becoming Sweden's all time record goal scorer on Thursday in an international friendly against Estonia.
