Sun shines as Swedes ready for Finland test
The second round of Euro 2013 matches are set to be played out in the scorching sunshine with Sweden's evening clash with Finland in Gothenburg set to be played in balmy temperatures.

Sweden’s clash with Finland kicks off at 8.30pm in Gothenburg on Saturday and according to weather agency SMHI the sun could push temperatures up to around 26 degrees Celsius.

In the second Group A clash Italy meet Denmark in Halmstad a little further down the west coast and the teams can expect the same scorching weather when the match kicks off at 6pm.

For those unable to make it to Gamla Ullevi in Gothenburg or Örjans Vall in Halmstad, the matches are broadcast on TV4 and are being shown at pubs in all of Sweden’s major cities.

In Malmö check out Fagan’s Irish Pub on Per Wijersgatan, O’Leary’s at Swedbank Stadium on Eric Perssonsvägen and Ölkafeet on Södra Skolgatan.

In Gothenburg check out O’Leary’s on Östra Hamngatan, Cheers on Viktoriagatan and Plain Kitchen on Risåsgatan.

In Stockholm check out O’Leary’s in Gamla Stan and at Skanstull, Trädgården under the bridge on Hammarby Slussvägen 2 and Retro on Sveavägen and Bondegatan.

The warm weather is set to ease off slightly on Sunday, according to SMHI as a cold front pushes in from the west.
