Sweden had the luck to win 1-0 to Switzerland and get their ticket to the quarterfinals of the 2018 World Cup, and they play against England.

A match played in the center of the field, where the chances of danger were conjured by the goalkeepers of both teams, and where Emil Forsberg could finally hook a ball from outside the area to place it in the squad, although the repetitions allowed to see a rubbing of a defender, who could have been credited with an own goal.

Switzerland took the lead, with control of the ball during almost 70 percent of the time of play, but failed to materialize any of the 18 shots made to the Swedish goal, defended by Robin Olsen.

Sweden took advantage of it to play the ball in midfield and try to keep the Swiss, led by a Blerim Dzemaili that appeared little in the meeting, and by a Zherdan Shaqiri who, although he was very active, did not know how to play the game.

The Swedes bet on the counterattack, to take advantage of the spaces that were giving up Switzerland, until in the 66th minute Forsberg could receive a pass from Ola Toivonen to finally beat, without attenuating, the goalkeeper Yann Sommer, who had no chance against a ball that He slipped into the upper right corner of his goal.

Sweden gets the ticket to its fifth match in the 2018 World Cup without much brightness, but with what it takes to continue in the race.
