2143: Three minutes to go until half time and England push forward again but James Milner overhits his cross when trying to find Carroll.


2142: mattekaren: Carroll just shot the ball straight into ref Skominas midsection. He appears unhurt though. Good thing Carroll is better with his head. (via Twitter)


Kim Kallstrom nearly punishes England, shooting from the edge of the box and his effort goes narrowly over the bar, with Hart beaten. Good shot - that is as close as Sweden has come to scoring.


2140: Ashley Young sneaks into space on the left of the penalty area after being released by Ashley Cole but gets caught in two minds. He decides to shoot instead of cross and pulls his shot wide. Andy Carroll was furious about that decision. He was in space, six yards from goal.


2135: Ibrahimovic strides forward, down the middle of the England half and has plenty of options either side of him. He decides to go it alone though and his effort is deflected safely into the hands of Hart. Good play from Ibrahimovic to get to that position but should have played the ball to a team mate out on the wing.


2132: Sweden are enjoying a little bit more of possession since conceding but it is Engalnd’s turn to be stubbron in defense. John Terry throws himself brutally into a 50/50 challenge and wins a free kick for his side. Excellent bravery there from Terry. Half an hour played and England lead.


2124: Steven Gerrard delivers a fantastic cross - similar to the one he delivered to Lescott in the first match - into the path of Andy Carroll. He reads that Gerrard is going to deliver and escapes his man and heads into the far corner with a great header. Isaksson has no chance and England lead.
