FT: Sweden 1-0 Switzerland

Video: Lang sent for an early bath

Red card!

A brilliant Swedish break sees Martin Olsson released one-on-one with Yann Sommer, with Michael Lang left with little choice but to take the Swansea man out from behind.

Lang is subsequently given his marching orders, with just second remaining in injury-time.

Free-kick on the edge of the box.

Late chance!

Another superb Rodriguez cross finds the head of Seferovic, but his glancing effort is gathered well by Sweden shot-stopper Robin Olsen.

Yellow wall

Swedish subs

Martin Olsson and Emil Krafth come in for Mikael Lustig and goalscorer Emil Forsberg.

Pressure mounting

Switzerland throwing everything they have at Sweden now, with Ricardo Rodriguez’s devilish crossing looking like the best outlet for the former.

A little over 10 minutes remaining for the Swiss to grab an equalizer.

Substitutions

Switzerland change things up as Blerim Dzemaili and Steven Zuber make way for Breel Embolo and Haris Seferovic.

GOAL!!!

Sweden are in front!

A flowing move from Sweden sees Forsberg’s dummy on the edge of the box open up space, with the winger’s subsequent strike taking a massive deflection and arrowing into the top corner of Sommer’s goal.

A summary of what we've seen so far

Banned

Whichever country advances this afternoon will be without an important player for the quarter-finals, with bookings for both Mikael Lustig and Valon Behrami having ruled the pair out of their respective sides’ next fixture.

Favoured

Cagey

No chances of note to speak of over the opening 10 minutes of the second-half, with Switzerland continuing to dominate possession, but Sweden standing firm at the back.

Second-half

We’re back underway in St. Petersburg!

Stats

Half-time

A relatively-disappointing opening 45 minutes sees the sides head in level at the break.

All still to play for in the second-half.

HT: 0-0

Video: Forsberg's deflected free-kick drifts wide

What a chance!

A superb whipped delivery to the back post from Lustig falls to an open Ekdal 8 yards out, but his effort on the volley is horribly skied over the bar.

Improving

Switzerland beginning to gain a foothold on things as the first-half wears on, with the likes of Xhaka and Shaqiri heavily involved.

A lovely one-two between Zuber and Dzemaili sees the latter presented with a wonderful chance to put the Swiss ahead, but his effort from just inside the box flies over the bar.

0-0

What a save!

Berg does well to direct a half-volley towards the bottom corner on the spin, but Swiss goalkeeper Yann Sommer produces a fantastic save to keep his side in it.

Is it time for penalties yet?

Sweden favoured

Danger man

Sweden have seen the better of things as we reach the 20-minute mark, but Switzerland look dangerous through main man Xherdan Shaqiri down the right…

Sweden chances!

The first real opportunity of the game sees Marcus Berg slipped through following a gorgeous Swedish move, but the striker’s finish is skewed badly wide.

But the Scandinavians are quickly presented with another chance as a dreadful mixup at the back from Switzerland allows both Berg and Ekdal efforts at goal.

The Swiss survive, though.

Sweden vs Switzerland live streaming & watch: Match preview

The penultimate knockout game in the Round of 16 is hosted between the swift Swiss and Sweden at the Saint Petersburg Stadium.

Switzerland arrive in fantastic shaping ending the stages unbeaten. The impressive outfit held Brazil to a stalemate, beat Serbia and relaxed into a draw with Costa Rica. In fact their impressive run of form extends over 25 games which saw them taste defeat a mere once.

This exponential form has seen them soar to 6th place in the FIFA rankings. The gradual improvement and consistent form is no surprise to the Swiss players. “These figures are no coincidence,” he said. “We’ve fought hard for this status over the last few months.”

Switzerland

However Switzerland will need to perform better than their draw against Costa Rica if they are to go all the way. Vladimir Pekovic has high ambitions and strong confidence in his Swiss outfit that have been so consistent. “After 22 games without a defeat, the goal is the quarterfinal.”

Switzerland will need to bring that little bit extra if they are to progress against a flying Sweden side and end the nations awful record in the knockouts. The last three round of 16 matches for Switzerland has seen the side score zero goals (1994, 2006, 2014).

Sweden

Sweden arrive into the game with their flag flying high. After their last minute defeat against Germany their chances of progression seemed ominous. However the Scandinavians played out of their skin in the near perfect game against Mexico where they thumped them 3-0.

“This is unbelievable. We could have won 5-0 or 6-0”, captain Andreas Granqvist explained to the media following Sweden’s win over Mexico. Head coach Janne Andersson gave a glaring review as well “It was a perfect game. I am happy, proud and a bit touched”, said the manager.

Sweden’s emphatic victory played its part in sending Germany home packing early. The giant slayers were responsible for Italy’s emission from the tournament as well. With their Mjölnir wielded the Vikings are ready to slay any other beast that stands in their path. However the grounded side know the stern test they face and the standards they need to reach to progress.

“It’s a situation again where we have to reach our personal best, I know I keep on repeating it but I think it’s a very good description on what is needed from us both as individuals and as a team,” the Sweden head coach said. “We need to reach our absolute highest level, then we will have the chance to beat Switzerland as well.”

This will be the 29th meeting between Sweden and Switzerland but the first ever at a major tournament. The heated affair promises to be entertaining.

Both sides with be without key players who miss the match through suspension. Switzerland will miss centre back Fabian Schar and right back Lichtsteiner.

Sweden will be without veteran Sebastian Larsson.
