Sunderland's Sebastian Larsson: 'Penalty miss for Sweden still hurts'

Sunderland's Sebastian Larsson admits that his penalty miss for Sweden against Russia in October still "hurts".

Sunderland midfielder Sebastian Larsson has admitted that missing a penalty for Sweden in their Euro 2016 qualifier against Russia last October still "hurts".

Sweden are currently second in Group G, four points adrift of leaders Austria, but they could have been in a more comfortable position had Larsson slotted home.

"Of course it hurts when you think about it," the Sunderland Echo quotes Larsson as saying. "There are many things in [my] career that you look back on and that hurts. Of course it hurts, but I've got past it."

Sweden will take on Russia on Saturday with a four-point lead over their opponents.
