Early history

The Swedish national football team first match was up against Norway in the first round of the 1908 Summer Olympics. In a disappointing match, they would lose 8-0 to be bundled out in the first round. The next major tournament for the team was the 1910 FIFA World Cup held in Austria and much like the Olympics, they would be knocked out in the opening round, this time it was to the Netherlands by a score of 3-1. Karl Gustafsson scoring the first goal for Sweden in an international tournament.

After recording their first victory in international football at the Nordic Football Championship they would take out their first title in the 1912 edition of the Nordic Football Championship when they defeated Finland and Norway by six goals. This form wouldn't carry into the Olympic competition when they lost 4-0 in the first round by the Russian Empire.
