Tue 3 Jul This is how he saw events unfold. Janne Andersson finally comes out to bask in the love of his fans Kudos also to Ola Toivonen, who was as toothless as most of his team-mates, but probably deserves an extra point or two as a birthday present.
He turns 32 today. Late excitement in St Petersburg: Just to return to that late, late incident that helped Sweden see out the clock. Under intense pressure from Switzerlandthey attacked on the break. The ball was played to Olsson and the substitute was was able to outpace Michael Lang as he bore down on the Swiss penalty area. Lang shoved him in the small of the back a yard or two outside the Swiss penalty area and Olsson lost his footing and stumbled before going down inside the penalty area.
The ref pointed to the spot and dismissed Lang, before consulting his pitchside monitor and overturning his own penalty decision and awarding a free-kick instead. A game that was extremely low on quality, but quite entertaining nonetheless ends with Sweden advancing to the quarter-finals courtesy of a heavily deflected goal from Emil Forsberg.
A stout display of defending followed and it was enough to see them into the last eight of the World Cupwhere they will meet Colombia or England. Toivonen takes an excellent free-kick which is saved by Yann Sommer.
Sweden have a free-kick a foot outside the Swiss penalty area, straight in front of goal. Sweden counter-attack and Martin Olsson is put clean through on goal. Michael Lang shoves him to the ground and is sent off. The push, in my opinion, came outside the box.
The referee is checking on VAR. The Swiss go forward again, only for another Shaqiri cross to be headed clear by Granqvist. Ricardo Rodriguez curls a cross from the left touchline to the near post. Seferovic gets a flick on the ball and Robin Olsen is down quickly to save. Isaac Thelin on, Marcus Berg off. Olsson and Toivonen take the corner short, but soon after, the ball goes out of play for a goal kick.
Martin Olsson gallops up the left flank
Sverige utslaget ur world cup picks up a pass as Sweden embark on a counter-attack. Sweden win a throw-in, deep in Swiss territory. Olsson throws the ball to Toivonen, who wins a corner. An excellent time-wasting opportunity for the Swedes here. Ricardo Rodriguez does well to dig the ball out from under his own feet on the byline and loop the ball across the face of the Swedish goal.
Relentless pressure from Switzerlandbut Sweden are holding firm for now. Martin Olsson has obviously been brought on to help shore up their defence, while Mikael Lustig has been forced off with cramp. Emil Krafth is a like-for-like swap for the right-back. Shaqiri takes the corner, sending the ball towards the far post.
Embolo gets his head to the ball, Forsburg blocks it a foot or two from the line and Granqvist hacks clear. Something of a scramble in the packed Sweden penalty area, which results in corner for the Swiss. He hooks it back into the mixer, but the ball goes out of play for a goal-kick. Sweden win a corner moments after Viktor Claesson takes a dive in the Swiss penalty area. Switzerland win another corner, which Ricardo Rodriguez sends towards Akanji.
Sweden clear courtesy of Granqvist. The ball breaks to Shaqiri outside the penalty area, who again tries to pick out Akanji. His pass is overcooked and Sverige utslaget ur world cup ball goes out of play. Embolo and Seferovic on "Sverige utslaget ur world cup" Zuber and "Sverige utslaget ur world cup." From the corner, Sweden half-clear their lines before finally alleviating a period of sustained pressure.
Switzerland win a free-kick about 40 yards from the Sweden goal.
Ricardo Rodriguez floats the ball into the mixer, where Xherdan Shaqiri has a shot put out for a corner. From that, they win another one.
Albin Ekdal has a shot from distance for Sweden. His effort fizzes over the bar. Swiss defender Manuel Akanji sticks out a foot, the ball takes a deflection and sails past the completely wrong-footed keeper. Forsberg fires Sweden ahead in the 66th minute. If you tempt fate for long enough There seems to be a very real possibility that this match will go to a penalty shoot-out and an even more real one that neither team will actually score any of their spot-kicks.
Forsberg takes the free-kick and smashes the ball straight into the two-man defensive wall. Zlatan Ibrahimovic must be in stitches laughing at this. Risky stuff from Behrami, who risks a second yellow after bringing down Forsberg just to the left of the Swiss penalty area, bringing a Swedish counter-attack to an end in the process. Behrami gets booked for a fairly innocuous challenge on Emil Forsberg Albin Ekdal is teed up about 20 metres the Swiss goal, but miscontrols the pass and blows a decent shooting opportunity.
Another Swedish throw-in, deep in Swiss territory.
Throw-in for Switzerlanddeep in Sweden territory. Switzerland win a succession of corners, none of which amount to much. They keep up the pressure nevertheless, but the Swedish defending is stout. Brief panic in the Sweden penalty area as Shaqiri picks up a weighted pass from

Lindelof sends a long ball forward, aiming for Emil Forsberg. Johan Djourou heads clear. Switzerland get the second half going, in a St Petersburg Stadium that is far from full.
The first half ends with the deadlock resolutely unbroken. Rodriguez crosses into the Sweden penalty area from the left. Olsen punches clear under pressure from Steven Zuber.
Switzerland win a free-kick wide on the left for a Lustig foul Sverige utslaget ur world cup Rodriguez. A shocking, shocking miss by Albin Ekdal, who sidefoots high over the bar from about six yards out with the goal gaping. Standing in splendid isolation, he got on the end of a cross from the right from Lustig, but elected to volley the cross rather than head it.
An astonishing miss that could haunt him to the grave. Sweden win a free-kick about 35 from the Swiss goal, on the inside right position. That could have gone anywhere. Blerim Dzemaili blasts high over the Sweden cross-bar, aiming for the top right-hand corner after being teed up by a series of one-touch passing around the edge of the penalty area.
He should have scored! Switzerland win a corner, the ball going out of play off Svensson. Ricardo Rodriguez sends the ball deep, aiming for Michael Lang. Sweden win a free-kick about 35 yards from the Swiss goal. Granit Xhaka tries to pick out Xherdan Shaqiri with a Sverige utslaget ur world cup cross-field pass. The ball sails out over the right touchline, of play. It was a silly, needless foul, a pull on Josip Drmic to prevent the Swiss striker getting to the ball.
Decent technique from Berg, who got his leg over so to speak a bouncing ball and drove a diagonal shot goalwards. It was heading for the corner, but Sommer did extremely well to fling himself to his right and keep the ball out. This article is over 5 months old. Key events Show 5. Sweden Switzerland 5.
