2201: What a fantastic goal from Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Absolutely no saving this if you are Lloris in the goal for France. The ball comes across from the right and into the path of Ibrahimovic, who is just inside the penalty area. He swings a right foot at it in acrobatic style and hits the ball so sweetly. It bullets into the far corner of the net and gives Sweden the lead. Great goal.

2153: After a disappointing first half, England takes the lead immediately through Rooney. Gerrard curls the ball into the penalty area but it takes a deflection and looks too close to goalkeeper Pyatov to cause any problems. But, inexplicably, the ball bounces through his hands as he crouches to collect and Rooney is on hand to head in from less than a yard out. He won’t score an easier goal in his life and now Ukraine has it all to do.
