Tuesday is the final day of the group stages of the tournament, and France will be looking to cement their spot at the top of the group.
France drew their opening game against England 1-1, but achieved a confident 2-0 win against Ukraine in their second to put them top of Group D on goal difference.
Sweden lost to Ukraine in a surprise result in their opening encounter, and then drastically lost against England in their second game. They had done well to come back to take a 2-1 lead against England and looked like they might cause an upset, but a Theo Walcott-inspired England came back to snatch a 2-3 victory and knock Sweden out of the tournament.
France midfielder Yohan Cabaye has said, "We'll have to give everything against Sweden so that we win and stay in first place."
Coming in first place does come with its rewards; the winner of Group D will avoid European and World champions Spain in the quarter finals, and will receive a tie against Italy. Whoever comes in second in Group D will play the winners of Group C, Spain.
