Squad for the International cup announced!
Skrivet av Jörg Pareigis   

Squad for the International cup 2011 announced This summer from August 12 to August 27, the fourth International cup (IC11) will be held in Sydney and Melbourne. The International cup is the world cup of Australian football and the Swedish Elks will take on the best teams in the world. On Sunday, July 3 the squad has been announced that will have the honour to represent Sweden.

For this landmark event which is only held every third year, head coach Daniel McClaer will bring the probably strongest Swedish side ever to Australia. When being asked about the team, he says "The majority of players were part of last year's success at the European Championships, but there are some new faces as well". Who made the team? Watch yourself!

This is was head coach Daniel McClaer thinks about the Elks squad and the ambitions for the tournament:

This is the second time the Elks are representing Sweden at the International cup. This time, we are planning and expecting a Top 5 finish. We have a slightly more experienced and mature squad in comparison to the 2008 campaign. The boys have been in preparations since January 2010 and are really looking forward to showing the football world that we are no walkovers.  The squad is a well balanced group that will showcase their speed, skill and determination.  The versatility of all the players to play any position is also a key to our game in this tournament, which we are looking forward to participating in!

You can support the Elks and follow their progress in the IC11 on Facebook .
