  1. Crikey, through heck and high water England come from 2-1 down to win 3-2 with the impact of Walcott's substitution proving the catalyst. Dramatic stuff, as ever with the Three Lions, who are now in a great position to qualify for the quarter-finals.

  2. FULL TIME. Sweden 2 England 3.

  3. 90+4

    Tense, tense times as we enter the last minute of play.

  4. 90+3

    Great chance for England! Walcott breaks with options and Gerrard's volley is superbly met by the charging Isaksson!

  5. 90+1

    Four minutes of added time.

  6. 90

    Gerrard somehow earns a free-kick in a collision with Svensson booked in the process. Gerrard then fires spectacularly over from 25 yards, which kills a nice amount of time for England.

  7. 89

    Welbeck gets his goal and comes off to a brilliant ovation for the England faithful as Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain replaces him.

  8. 88

    Hart punches away commandingly from a Sweden corner, with Parker kicking upfield as England's attacking options look to have been completely neutralised in favour of a staunch defensive rebuild.

  9. 87

    Larsson whips another good ball in from a free-kick with Terry meeting it bravely. It's still all Sweden as they press for a goal which would prevent them being sent home tonight.

  10. 86

    Cole is sent to the turf by Svensson, England earning a respite with a free-kick inside Sweden's half.

  11. 85

    England are starting to sit back now as Ibrahimovic fails to make contact with Rosenberg's cross. Hodgson's boys can't afford to be doing that with five minutes to go.

  12. 84

    Having picked up a knock, Walcott is back on amid fears of an injury. Young clears to touch under pressure from Lustig as Sweden dominate possession.

  13. 82

    England break but a combination of poor passes between Welbeck, Gerrard and Parker result in the latter having a pop with the fans behind goal ducking for cover.

  14. 81

    Another Sweden change as Elm makes way and Christian Wilhelmsson takes his place.

  15. 79

    Elmander is replaced by Markus Rosenberg as Sweden now find themselves chasing the game after looking completely in control just twenty minutes ago.

  16. 77

    Having just started a sentence with 'England need to attack with more purpose....', Welbeck scores with an exquisite finish after an excellent delivery from Walcott! 3-2 and this back and forth game takes another twist.

  17. 77

    GOAL! Welbeck scores!

  18. 76

    The bodies go flying as Ibrahimovic finds Elmander, before the former unleashes a rocket from range with Hart brilliantly parrying behind for a corner.

  19. 75

    M Olsson cuts inside Johnson and Walcott like they weren't even there. He gets to the byline and plays in Kallstrom whose effort is narrowly over.

  20. 74

    It was always too high from Young and while it wa't too far away that feels like a bit of a waste.
