  1. Post update

    Republic of Ireland 1-1 Sweden

    Few niggling fouls going in now. You always get a big chance in the last few minutes, who will it fall to?

  2. Danger on the left

    Republic of Ireland 1-1 Sweden

    Martin Olsson's latest daisy cutter across the area is in keeping with the rest of the game. The left-back has put ball after ball into the box and remains a threat.

  3. SUBSTITUTION

    Republic of Ireland 1-1 Sweden

    Oscar Lewicki now gets the hook, to be replaced by Albin Ekdal. Swedish fans are appealing for a penalty as Andreas Granqvist is wrestled to the floor but the referee isn't bothered. 

    Five minutes left. 

  4. SUBSTITUTION

    Republic of Ireland 1-1 Sweden

    Aidan McGeady is coming on for James McCarthy. 

    "Wonder if Roy Keane has given him a pat on the back?" quips Mark Lawrenson. 

  5. Hot shots

    Republic of Ireland 1-1 Sweden

    Good knowledge. Can one of the pair leave his mark on the game?

  6. Post update

    Republic of Ireland 1-1 Sweden

    Martin Olsson has been awesome down the Swedish left. He fizzes in another low cross and somehow Zlatan cannot get on the end of it. 

    Martin O'Neill needs to sort out that side of the pitch, it's been a steady supply line. 

  7. Post update

    Republic of Ireland 1-1 Sweden

    Ciaran Clark wins a big header against Zlatan. Mark Lawrenson says Ireland look tired, and he's right. 

  8. SUBSTITUTION

    Republic of Ireland 1-1 Sweden

    Robbie Keane, 35, is on, replacing Wes Hoolahan. Can he conjure a winner?

    Chris Waddle

    Glenn Whelan has got away with that. It was a bad tackle.

  10. YELLOW CARD

    Republic of Ireland 1-1 Sweden

    Getting tasty now. Glenn Whelan, who has been immense, goes in hard on Oscar Lewicki. Looked 50-50 to me, maybe 60-40 but Whelan is booked. Sebastian Larsson isn't happy and Whelan then has a go at him for complaining. Just like a Premier League game.

  11. Painful viewing for Republic fans

    Republic of Ireland 1-1 Sweden

    Watch as Ciaran Clark scores in his own net. If you dare. 

  12. Here comes Keane

    Not many seats being used at the moment in the green end of the stadium. With tough games to follow for both teams, the tension here is fully understandable.

    Instructions are being barked out from the technical areas. Get ready for Robbie Keane.

  13. Post update

    Republic of Ireland 1-1 Sweden

    Robbie Brady takes it, looking for John O'Shea. The ball is cleared and when Brady works it in again, Ciaran Clark fouls a Swedish defender. 

  14. Post update

    Republic of Ireland 1-1 Sweden

    So can Ireland respond again? They are looking for a second and they win a corner. Huge roars from their supporters. 

  15. Post update

    Republic of Ireland 1-1 Sweden

    But here come Ireland, Jeff Hendrick is close to another goal for them, but his close-range effort is well saved.

    Zlatan Ibrahimovic with that bit of class that we have been waiting for. He drives down the left, whips it in. 

    Ciaran Clark could have done better.

  17. Post update

    Republic of Ireland 1-1 Sweden

    Mark Lawrenson

    BBC football expert at the Stade de France

    There have been a range of crosses into the Ireland box in the last few minutes and they all looked very dangerous. It is an own goal. There is nothing worse. He has to deal with it and has got it spectacularly wrong.

  18. Republic of Ireland 1-1 Sweden

    Ciaran Clark (OG)

    Zlatan has been kept quiet but he's racing into the box, gets to the left byline and smacks a cross to the near post where Ciaran Clark bends down and nods into his own net. Ouch.

  19. Post update

    Republic of Ireland 1-0 Sweden

    Ireland win a free-kick deep on the left and it's swung over to James McClean, who heads goalwards from the edge of the box but it's high and wide. Decent effort, though. 

  20. Post update

    Republic of Ireland 1-0 Sweden

    This could turn into a long final 20 minutes for Ireland as their fans sing "1-0 to the boys in green."
