Sweden, who are fourth in Group One with nine points from six matches, face Hungary in Budapest on Sept. 5 and Malta in Ta'Qali four days later. Denmark are top on 16 points.

Larsson will miss both matches because of a knee injury.

Midfielders: Oscar Wendt (FC Copenhagen), Rasmus Elm (Kalmar), Samuel Holmen (Brondby), Kim Kallstrom (Olympique Lyon), Sebastian Larsson (Birmingham City), Anders Svensson (Elfsborg Boras), Ola Toivonen (PSV Eindhoven), Pontus Wernbloom (AZ Alkmaar)

Strikers: Marcus Berg (Hamburg SV), Johan Elmander (Bolton Wanderers), Tobias Hysen (IFK Gothenburg), Zlatan Ibrahimovic (Barcelona)
