9.50pm:9.39pm:

Full-time:

A fine performance by Sweden crowned with two excellent goals. France, meanwhile, produced a display as lethargic and incoherent as any during their 2010 World Cup misadventure. Play like that against Spain and they will be tonked worse than Ireland were.

9.38pm:

90+4 min: Wilhelsson dawdles Balotelli-style when only at the goalkeeper to beat, and Lloris is able to snuff out the danger.

9.36pm:

GOAL! Sweden 2-0 France (Larsson 90')

Sweden deserve that and so do France. Awful defending allowed Sweden to overrun Les Bleus and when a Wilhelsson shot came back off the bar Larsson thundered it into the roff of the net from eight yards!

9.33pm:

89 min: Wilhelmsson, who has made a big impact since his arrival, wins a freekick near the French area, giving his country a chance to run down the clock and claim and pride-boosting victory.

9.31pm: 87 min: Fine tackle by Olsson to denyBenzema, who again looked sluggish as he tried to get the shot off. Should have unleashed it sooner. 9.31pm:

86 min: OK, it's not all France: Kallstrom has just dragged a decent effort wide from 18 yards.

9.30pm:

85 min: It's all France, who are finally giving a hoot. After suave interplay Clichy sends a great ball across the face of goal but no one could get on the end of it.

9.27pm:

83 min: At last Blanc throws on Giroud and withdraws M'Vila. And - quelle surprise - Giroud's first contribution is to nearly score from a header, his effort from eight yards whizzing fractionally wide.

9.26pm:

82 min: That was more like it from France ... right up until the finish, when, after a superb swift flowing move, Menez scuffed his shot, allowiong ISaksson to push it behind.

9.24pm:

80 min: Blanc's continued refusal to throw on Giroud is bizarre, especially given that we know Sweden are vulnerable in the air at the back.

9.22pm:

79 min: Swedish switch: Wernbloom on, Toivonen off. Svensson off, Holmen on.

9.21pm:

78 min: French change: Nasri off after an irelevant display, Menez on.

9.21pm:

76 min: Great block by Mellberg on a shot from Mexes, followed by a ludicrous shot by Ribéry, who lazily swung at the rebound and sent the ball into orbit.

9.19pm:

75 min: Menez is warming up and seems poised to join the fray.

9.18pm:

73 min: The French threat is growing, at last, but so far all their shooting is from long range. Maloudsa has just cracked one over from 20 yards.

9.15pm:

70 min: After game probing down the right by Debuchy, the ball breaks to M'Vila, who leathers it at goal from 20 yards. Isaksson bats it behind for a corner. Recent articles about Sweden and France
