Sweden vs. Portugal  2 - 3

General Game Stats Chart


Minute   Description
90' +5 And there is the final whistle! Portugal have booked their place at the 2014 World Cup with a win in Solna!
90' +3 Ronaldo flicks a nonchalant effort just wide from the edge of the box after controlling a high ball from the left. Isaksson was quick off his line which seemed to put the Portugal man off as he came within inches of becoming his country's all-time leading goalscorer.
90' +1 Moutinho thinks he has won a corner for the visitors over on the right, but the linesman thinks otherwise and awards a goal kick to Hamren's men.
90' A. Gerndt enters the game and replaces S. Larsson.
FIVE MINUTES OF ADDED TIME... Surely Sweden can't score three in that time?
89' With just minutes left to play Bento's side have one foot on the plane to Rio...
87' Ronaldo teases Nilsson with the ball as he thunders towards goal and he nearly catches Isaksson out with an early effort from distance, but the ball bounces just wide of the right-hand post.
85' Patricio gathers a cross from Olsson easily under little to no pressure from Sweden's frontline. What a blow that quick-fire double from Ronaldo was to the hosts' hopes of turning this play-off round!
84' M. Antonsson gets yellow.
83' ELMANDER FLASHES A SHOT OVER!! Ibra cushions the ball into the path of his strike-partner inside the box, but the Norwich City forward's shot on the spin is wayward, and it crashes into the crowd rather than the back of the net.
82' Ricardo Costa enters the game and replaces Hugo Almeida.
J. Durmaz enters the game and replaces A. Kačaniklić.
It was Moutinho that provided the assist for that latest Portugal goal, which means he has two for the evening. It has been a masterclass from the Monaco man in midfield tonight.
