Sweden Names Roster for 2014 FIL World Lacrosse Championships

(Stockholm) Coaches Kim Langeborg and Tobias Kindblom, both of whom have had international experience with Team Sweden as players, have selected a 23-man team that will compete for Sweden in the 2014 FIL World Lacrosse Championship.

Head Coach Langeborg said “We are really proud of all the guys that have fought for a final spot on the roster. The past six months, seeing all the players and making the tough decisions when trimming the roster from 46 to the final 23 players has been very hard, but also makes us very proud of the growth and accomplishments that Sweden lacrosse has undertaken the past years. We are really looking forward to working with this team leading up to Denver. “
