  2. Get Involved


    David: Shaqiri needs to learn how to use his right foot. Far too easy to defend against. Just constantly trying to get it inside on the left.

    Jack: Oh great, best chance of reaching a final in a generation (IF we get through - big if) and our bogey side awaits in the next round

    Gergory: No Zlatan, no problem. It is truly addition by subtraction for Sweden. Outstanding team effort without having to rely on one superstar to win matches

  3. 'Sweden edged it'

    FT: Sweden 1-0 Switzerland

    Phil Neville

    Former England & Man Utd defender in Russia

    The worst thing Manuel Akanji can do, is just dangle a leg to block the shot because the goalkeeper had it covered, but the deflection gave him no chance. I think Sweden edged it and through determination and organisation.

  4. 'Fake Xhaka'

    FT: Sweden 1-0 Switzerland

    Phil Neville

    Former England & Man Utd defender in Russia

    Granit Xhaka probably thinks he had a decent game today because he passed the ball sideways to his teammates, but he cost his team the goal. He allows players past him too easily and he is the holding midfielder. He is fake.

  5. Miss after miss after miss

    FT: Sweden 1-0 Switzerland

    There was 30 shots in that game from both sides but only seven on target.

  6. Swedish spirit and togetherness

    FT: Sweden 1-0 Switzerland

    Jermaine Jenas

    Former England midfielder on BBC One

    I quite enjoyed it and it was an entertaining watch. Switzerland threw everything at Sweden in the end. In fairness to Sweden, what they lack in attack, they make up for with their spirit and togetherness.

  7. WATCH: Seferovic misses late chance

  8. 'Nothing to fear for England or Colombia'

    FT: Sweden 1-0 Switzerland

    Pat Nevin

    Former Chelsea winger on BBC Radio 5 live

    I am not amazed that this game was decided by a deflection. England or Colombia, you have nothing to fear.

    If England play against that Sweden team, 99 times out of 100, they will beat them.

  9. Post update

    FT: Sweden 1-0 Switzerland

    The Sweden subs and staff pile on to the pitch to celebrate with the players.

    Some Switzerland players in tears, got to feel for them.

  15. 'Clever Swedish break'

    Sweden 1-0 Switzerland

    Mark Lawrenson

    BBC football expert in Russia

    It's such a clever break by Sweden. Martin Olsson does well and he makes sure the Swiss player has to tackle him. But I think the first contact is outside the box.

  16. VAR

    Sweden 1-0 Switzerland

    The referee signals the square in the air.

    He is looking at whether it was inside the box or outside.
