Euro 2012: Sweden coach Hamren denies 'cowards' comment

Sweden coach Erik Hamren says he did not call his players "cowards" after their 2-1 defeat by Ukraine at Euro 2012.

Hamren insisted his words were misinterpreted, but said Sweden were "cautious" and "a little nervous" in their opening game.

Sweden face England on Friday in Kiev, and Hamren believes his team's win against the Netherlands in the qualifying stage will be an experience they can draw on against Roy Hodgson's side.
