Manchester United defender Victor Lindelof has surprisingly turned down an invitation to the Swedish national team ahead of the upcoming Euro 2020 qualifiers against Romania and Norway.
The 24-year-old has opted out of the latest games having been named as part of the Sweden squad for the aforementioned games.
Victor Lindelof has been replaced by New York City defender Anton Tinnerholm.
According to The Football Channel via Goal, Lindelof pulled out of the national team after his best friend John Guidetti was left out of the Sweden squad named for the Romania and Norway games.
2018 FIFA World Cup quarterfinalists Sweden will host Romania on Saturday in the first match of their Euro 2020 qualifiers before they face Norway three days later.
Victor Lindelof has been in very good form for Manchester United this season in both the Premier League and the Champions League.
He has started 25 league games for the Red Devils in their bid for a top-four spot on the Premier League table.
Lindelof has formed a potent centre back partnership with Chris Smalling and the two players have been crucial to the run of just one league defeat in 13 games under interim Red Devils manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Manchester United have won ten, drawn two and lost just once in the 13 league games managed by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
