A merry band of about a thousand yellow-clad Sweden fans stayed after the game, singing in a stand behind the goal and ignoring repeated requests from the stadium announcer to make their way out.In 39 years as a player and then a coach, Andersson hasn't worked outside Sweden, and many of his clubs were in the country's lower leagues, like Alets and Laholms.Sweden are doing better at this World Cup than they ever did with Ibra.Sweden have three shutouts in four games despite a possession disadvantage: 29 percent against Germany, 35 percent versus Mexico and 37 percent against Switzerland.After the victory against Switzerland, Andersson deflected a question about whether Sweden is starting to think about winning their first World Cup.
