Juventus striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic believes Sweden's team ethic gives the nation cause for optimism at the World Cup.
With former Celtic icon Henrik Larsson and Arsenal's Freddie Ljungberg also in the attacking mix, they are not short of a cutting edge.
And Sweden will start strong favourites here on Saturday when they face Trinidad and Tobago, the smallest nation in Germany, in Group B.
Ibrahimovic is calling on his team-mates to play like they did in the qualifying campaign.
He said: 'A lot of the talk is about myself, Henrik and Freddie. We can only be ourselves and play as we can and try and get even better.
'But we are a team and everyone around us has to stick together so that everything works.
'There is a good harmony within the squad. We're looking forward to the matches.
'The most important thing for us when we meet Trinidad and Tobago is to get our game together and play how we usually play.
'We need to do what we are best at, that is good defending and good attacking play.'
Sweden's top goalkeeper Andreas Isaksson will be absent through concussion and has been told to rest for up to six days.
Ibrahimovic said: 'It's always sad when someone gets injured.
'Andreas is a world-class goalkeeper. I hope he can play against Paraguay (on June 15), even though we do have two good reserves.'
Isaksson was left shaken after being struck on the head by a close-range drive from former Rennes team-mate Kim Kallstrom in training on Wednesday.
Team doctor Anders Valentin said: 'He's got concussion. He doesn't remember anything about the incident.
'He now has to rest for five or six days. However it's very likely he will be able to play against Paraguay.'
Coach Lars Lagerback has moved quickly to pick Isaksson's replacement from either former Arsenal goalkeeper Rami Shaaban or John Alvbage.
Both players are untested at this level but the Swedish boss is keeping his cards close to his chest.
He said: 'I've decided which one of them will play in the opener but I'm not going to say just yet. We have two good keepers to choose from.'
Meanwhile, former Everton midfielder Tobias Linderoth has recovered from a thigh injury and will be fit to start on Saturday.
