  1. What a finale. Sweden win 2-0 but France still progress where they will face Italy in the quarter-finals. They were poor tonight and will have to improve greatly agains the Italians in the last-eight.

  2. FULL TIME. Sweden 2 France 0.

  3. 90+3

    It should have been 3-0 to Sweden but Larsson is tackled in the box as Lloris smothers impressively.

  4. 90+1

    The error from Rami turns into a goal as Kallstrom's cross finds Holsen who strikes the bar before Larsson shows excellent technique to bury home the rebound!

  5. 90+1

    GOAL! Larsson scores!

  6. 90

    Lloris captures the corner with intent, looking to set France away but Rami gets robbed and Holsen wins it back.

  7. 89

    Wilhelmsson slips past Debuchy, earning a free-kick for Sweden which Mellberg will no doubt fancy getting his head to.

  8. 87

    It's M Olsson who makes an outstanding block this time as the left-back denies Benzema's shot hitting the target.

  9. 86

    A one-two between Kallstrom and Ibrahimovic ends with the midfielder going for a goal with an uncharacteristic drive that drags well wide.

  10. 85

    Benzema looks for Menez with a defence-splitting pass but Olsson steps up to intercept. The two Swedish centre-backs have been outstanding tonight.

  11. 84

    And he should have scored with his first touch as he flirts into the six-yard box unmarked and heads a corner wide from close range.

  12. 83

    Giroud replaces M'Vila as France boost their strike options.

  13. 82

    This time it's beautiful from France as Menez links up with Ribery, before winning the ball back and drawing an excellent save from Isaaksson.

  14. 81

    It's poor from France as Clichy crosses far too prematurely from the left with not a single White shirt in the penalty box.

  15. 80

    Granqvist advances and finds Larsson, the Sunderland man's ball cleared by Rami as Holmen introduces himself to the game by getting booked for a clumsy tackle on M'Vila.

  16. 78

    The Swedes also make a double swap as Wernbloom comes on for Toivonen and Svensson is replaced by Holmen.

  17. 77

    Nasri comes off for Menez in a France change.

  18. 77

    Mellberg shows complete class as Debuchy fires into the six-yard box with Mexes coming in, being denied a tap-in by the defender's last-ditch challenge.

  19. 76

    Narrow link-up play between Nasri and Benzema looks promising, but after a shooting opportunity goes to waste, Nasri finally pulls the trigger and wins a corner.

  20. 75

    Lovely play as Kallstrom finds WIlhelmsson, whose ball is teasing but just out of reach for Ibrahimovic to reach at the far post.
