STOCKHOLM, Oct 12 (Reuters) Sweden right-back Mikael Nilsson has pulled out of tomorrow's Euro 2008 qualifier in Liechtenstein with a fever, the Swedish FA said today.

Nilsson, who has been replaced in the squad by Rosenborg Trondheim's Mikael Dorsin, follows IFK Gothenburg's Niclas Alexandersson who withdrew with a foot injury.

Sweden, who host Northern Ireland on Wednesday, are level on 19 points with Spain at the top of Group F with a game in hand.

Northern Ireland are in third place on 16 points.
