Sweden have often been thought of as one of the better teams in Europe yet their record at the European Championships doesn't really reflect that, only once in the last five European Championships have they made it beyond the group stage and in that instance they were eliminated immediately in the quarter finals. Arguably better teams than the current one have failed to perform at the European Championships.
Sweden are likely to qualify for Euro 2016 but are also likely to fall short once they make it to the finals based on recent performances.

Sweden don't have the best record at the European Championships. After not qualfying in 1996 Sweden have consistently qualified for the finals but have been eliminated at the group stage three times. In 2004 Sweden performed well to reach the quarter finals but their progress was halted by Holland on penalties. Sweden are not a bad side but lack the strength in depth to do really well in the major tournaments.
