USA news has had a lot of fake news about Sweden. I guess that is what he is talking about.
It´s interesting novelty even so Sweden can´t use this in WM or EM. The idea behind this is to help girls in way of girlpower

Hi, Johann, thanks for stopping in and updating me on the USA fake news phenomenon.

I rather like the girl power quotes. It would take FIFA and UEFA many years to change the shirt rules lol

I´m not sure if I would them to change their rules. It helps to football to have the name in the back even so it´s ok to have it different in small time.

You have a point there. Without the names on the back of the shirts we´d only have the shirt numbers to rely on.
