Forsberg strike sends Sweden into last eight

World Cup 2018 Brazil vs Mexico Round Of 16 When And Where To Watch Live Coverage On TV Live Streaming Online

Switzerland go into their last-16 World Cup match against Sweden in St Petersburg on Tuesday with a much more exciting squad than those at past tournaments, but only victory will secure a lasting legacy for their so-called "Golden generation".

The RB Leipzig midfielder neatly worked space for a shooting opportunity on the edge of the box 24 minutes from time, but still needed a slice of fortune to set up a last-eight meeting with England or Colombia as his shot deflected off Manuel Akanji to leave Yann Sommer stranded.

Olsson was pushed in the back by Lang with only Sommer to beat in injury-time, with Skomina initially awarding a penalty but changing to a free-kick after he consulted the replay.

There was little to enthuse about in the first half for either the fans of Switzerland's Red Crusaders not the ssons (excuse the pun) and daughters of Sweden.

Switzerland have made headlines in Russian Federation for their players' controversial goal celebrations but the team stands on the verge of matching their best-ever run at a World Cup.

The next couple of minutes saw both teams creating chances in each other's box but failed in converting those chances and as a result Sweden and Switzerland went to the tunnel goalless. They were worse than even we thought and if the victors aren't rolled out of Russian Federation by Gareth Southgate's team in the last-eight then England's revival under their new coach will have to have a sizeable asterix placed against it.

And Switzerland's lack of creativity in the middle helped them by and large.

Striker Marcus Berg was the biggest culprit, spurning two openings in quick succession, while Albin Ekdal volleyed over with the goal at his mercy.

Belgium fancied to knock Brazil out of the World Cup

They were far from convincing, but the Swiss really missed Breel Embolo, who sat on the bench having left the camp to attend the birth of his daughter after the Costa Rica clash.

Vladimir Petkovic's team had lost just one of their last 25 games and come through a group stage in Russian Federation that included Brazil and Serbia. He was played in behind, but Berg sliced his effort well wide of the target in the end.

Switzerland looked to be more intent on seizing that opportunity at the outset, controlling possession in the first half and with much of the play flowing through Xherdan Shaqiri in midfield.

Sweden were making their 50th appearance at the World Cup finals as they took on the Swiss, a feat which meant that only Mexico had made more appearances than them in the tournament without winning the competition.

Embolo also threatened from a corner but Sweden captain Andreas Granqvist got back to block his header on the line before Robin Olsen kept out a Seferovic header.

Switzerland coach Vladimir Petkovic: "We're sorely disappointed, the whole team is". Only during the stoppage time, a header from substitute Seferovic could draw a good save from Olsen.

"I think you'd have to ask everyone else that question".

All in all, the match was very far from being a classic, but the Swedes won't care about that.
