Andersson extends deal as Sweden coach through 2024

STOCKHOLM, Sweden (AP) — Sweden coach Janne Andersson has signed a contract extension through to the European Championship in 2024. Andersson took over as coach in 2016 and led Sweden to the quarterfinals of the 2018 World Cup. That is his only major tournament in charge so far. Sweden also qualified for Euro 2020 under Andersson. That tournament has been pushed back a year because of the coronavirus pandemic. Swedish Football Association secretary general Håkan Sjöstrand says “Janne also has a leadership that fits well with us at the federation.”
