To stoke the fire afore England’s Euro 2012 game against Sweden tonight, Swedish paper Aftonbladet mocked up their ideal post-match Daily Mirror front page for tomorrow morning – leading with a pun-a-rrific ‘Broken Hart’ headline and detailing how ‘shitty’ England were subjected to the worst moment of their respective careers by the conquering Swedes.

Before anyone goes getting their bloomers in a wad, it’s all just a bit of a tit-for-tat tabloid spat.
