STOCKHOLM (Reuters) - Sweden have extended the contract of coach Erik Hamren until 2016, the Swedish Football Association said on Thursday.

"I'm really charged up and eager to make it to the (European) Championship in 2016 in France. It will be really exciting," Hamren told a news conference.

Hamren, appointed Sweden coach in 2010, failed to guide Sweden to the World Cup in Brazil next year after losing a playoff against Portugal.

Sweden finished second in their qualifying group behind run-away winners Germany.
