The 30-year-old former Toulouse and Bolton striker suffered the injury on May 12 and hopes to be fit for Monday's opening Group D match against Euro 2012 co-hosts Ukraine although no decision was expected before Saturday at the earliest.

Elmander is a key player under coach Erik Hamren playing at the apex of the attack in front of Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
