  2. 90+5

    Cuneyt Cakir calls an end to a thrilling second half and it is Ukraine who have won and top Group D.

  3. 90+3

    Sweden have what will surely be their last chance to salvage something from the match, Mellberg's volley landing on the roof of the net.

  4. 90+2

    Devich comes on for Konoplyanka as Ukraine make their final substitution.

  5. 90+1

    Elmander follows up his vital miss by fouling Mykhalyk, handing Ukraine some time to protect their lead. Three minutes are added to this second half.

  6. 90

    A great chance goes begging for Sweden to equalise. Elmander is put through on goal by Ibrahimovic but blazes over from point blank range. Should have done a lot better.

  7. 89

    Good skill by Konoplyanka allows Ukraine to break forward. They tease on the edge of the area before Gusev fouls Mellberg as he chases the ball down on the right by-line.

  8. 87

    Lustig tries to keep a Sweden attack going, but the ball had gone out of play before he touches it inside.

  9. 86

    Mellberg upends Milevsky to allow Ukraine a breather. Sweden had previously threatened with Wilhelmsson in particular looking dangerous.

  10. 85

    Rotan comes on for Voronin in a Ukraine switch.

  11. 84

    Nazarenko looks to curl the free-kick into the top corner but it goes just over the bar.

  12. 83

    Voronin is hacked down by Elm, who gets booked.

  13. 82

    The crowd goes wild as Shevchenko bows out of the game after scoring twice. He is replaced by Milevsky.

  14. 81

    Sweden pressing for an equaliser now, but Wilhelmsson's shot from outside the box is held by Pyatov.

  15. 78

    Wilhelmsson goes on a marauding run into the Ukraine box but is stopped by Gusev.

  16. 77

    Sweden go close to equalising as Ibrahimovic sees his powerfully struck effort saved by Pyatov. He initially won the ball in the air before being set up for the shot by Elm's lovely flick.

  17. 76

    Elm hits a lofted pass towards Martin Olsson on the left flank but the the full back is unable to control and it goes out for a Ukraine throw.

  18. 74

    Yarmolenko switches the ball nicely from the right of the pitch to the left as he finds Konoplyanka.

  19. 73

    Ukraine looking pretty comfortable and are enjoying possession in Sweden's half.

  20. 72

    Third and final change for Sweden now as Elmander comes on for Rosenberg.
