England fans at Euro 2012 have taken over part of the Uefa fan zone in Kiev in response to "rip-off" bar prices and the huge Swedish presence in the city.
They claimed the cost of a pint of beer almost doubled overnight at a bar designated as the base of the official England supporters' club.
Fans were also keen to make themselves seen and heard by the Swedes, who will vastly outnumber the English in the Olympic Stadium on Friday night.
More than 100 supporters moved into the fan zone - directly opposite an area set aside for Sweden fans - where beer costs £1.50.
They hung large England flags from beer tents and serenaded rival fans with a rendition of the national anthem.
Around 20,000 Swedish fans are set to attend the match, compared with 5,000 cheering for England.
History is also against Roy Hodgson's men as the Three Lions have never beaten Sweden in a competitive match.
But England fans predicted the team could overcome the circumstances to take three points.
Anthony Oliver, 27, from Welwyn Garden City, predicted a close game but claimed England would clinch a 1-0 victory.
Meanwhile the England band have been given assurances they will be allowed into the remaining games at Euro 2012.
After driving 2,800 miles to Donetsk for Monday's opener with France and being granted admittance to the Donbass Arena, the band were stunned when security staff confiscated their instruments.
Following representations by the Football Association, Uefa has confirmed the band will be allowed into the game.
