FIFA World Cup 2018: Sweden vs Switzerland

Sweden booked their place in the FIFA World Cup quarter-finals for the first time in almost a quarter of a century after Emil Forsberg forced a slender 1-0 win over Switzerland in Saint Petersburg.

A cagey encounter from the outset, Sweden fell back on their tried and tested formula: sit deep, defend solidly and strike on the counter-attack.

Switzerland were the more active influence in the game when it came to possession, but the reactive approach from Janne Andersson's side proved the more fertile. Chances were limited, but the better of them fell at Swedish feet.
